The scriptures will be from Revelation and other passages interpreted to indicate “End Times.” The sermon will address “The Heresies of Rapture and Tribulation” and explore the misunderstanding of what will happen in the Holy Land before the return of Christ. The ‘Left Behind” books and movies are rotten theology.

Sunday May 20th – Pentecost

Pentecost is the “birthday of the church” – when the Holy Spirit descended. Scriptures are John 15:26-16:15 and Acts 2 with sermon “When You Cannot Yet Bear the Truth.” After worship, Strawberry Shortcake will be enjoyed for Fellowship time.

Sunday May 6th – Older Adult Sunday

Sunday April 29th – Jesus the Vine

Sunday April 29th, Sunday morning 10:30 am worship at CCC focused in the Gospel Lectionary passage from John 15:1-8, where Jesus declares himself the (grape) vine and his disciples the branches. Video clip was about “Fun Facts About the Finger Lakes” and explored the area for growing grapes and viticulture. The “vine” is really the trunk, and the “branches” are the arms or cordons coming off the vine. The fruit bearing shoots spring out of buds, and while green are living, but at the end of the year are dead wood, needing pruning.

Sunday April 22nd – Earth Day

“Surely the Lord is in this place…” (Gen. 28:16). The 2018 theme for Earth Day Sunday is “Sense of Place” and offers insights about living in harmony with local ecosystems and watersheds, rightly sharing places with a diversity of peoples, and respecting the history of your place. “If you don’t know where you are, you probably don’t know who you are.”
