Bring your items October 9th and drop them in the church office as you head into the service. We will digitally record/copy the items prior to placing the items in the time capsule and keep track of the names of who contributes. We will gather after service on our grounds in back to ceremoniously place the time capsule into the newly built niche. Do NOT put items in envelopes. We will be recording names of those who contribute, and ensuring nothing inappropriate goes in.
Come out to the movies on Sunday, September 18! (This event was offered as an auction item but is now open to everyone.) Our movie is the 2016 hilarious comedy “Hail, Caesar!” directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton and many others. “The Coen brothers’ inside Hollywood comedy set in 1951… is scintillating, uproarious, substantial and playfully personal.” - The New Yorker. Walk down the red carpet and have your picture taken with (cardboard) George Clooney! Enjoy popcorn and both hard and soft beverages! Spend an evening laughing with others - it will do you good! Suggested donation is $20. If that won’t work for you, come out anyway and do what you can. Pre-show social time, popcorn fest and photo op starts at 6:30 pm and the film will begin at 7:00 pm. We hope to see you there! - event hosts Kathy Disney and Curt Donaldson. “Hail, Caesar!” is rated PG-13 for suggestive content and smoking.
Sundays, August 14 & 21 * 1:00-3:00PM * 6300 A Street
Now Our Work Begins--Considering a Land Acknowledgement
At the conclusion of our six-week summer program learning about the Indigenous history of North America and taking a closer look at past and present Native inhabitants of Lincoln, the congregation is invited to come together to discuss a meaningful land acknowledgement for our church.
Sunday, August 14, 1:00 – 3:00PM. At this initial meeting the congregation will discuss the purpose of land acknowledgements and our desire to craft a meaningful document. Land acknowledgements often include commitment to building the right relationship with Native members and organizations in the community. We will also discuss what might we as a congregation commit to? We are “stepping into a history of broken promises,” so it is crucial that we don’t make promises we can’t keep.
Sunday, August 21, 1:00 – 3:00PM. At this second meeting, participants will work on crafting a meaningful land acknowledgement.
Please join us for this important faith work as we consider what we have learned over the summer program and discuss how we might continue to move toward right relationship, reconciliation, and healing.
