July 14, 2019 – FPCU Hosts the TAC Lake Service

We’ll Worship at the Lake on July 14  as FPCU Hosts the TAC Lake Service 

On Sunday, July 14, the congregation of FPCU will not worship in town but instead will worship with our friends from the Trumansburg Area Churches at 8 a.m. at the North Point of Taughannock Falls State Park on Lake Cayuga as we host this week’s TAC Lake Service. Following worship, we will share a dish-to-pass brunch by the shores of the lake. Please bring your lawn chairs for the service. We invite you to bring a dish-to-pass and your table service for brunch. All are invited and welcome!

We hope you will join us for worship each week. Here is some information that you might like to have about this week’s worship service.

Focus Scripture – “Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days, he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds. He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word.” (Hebrew 1:1-3)

6-4-2017 Empowered Truth-Sayers - Pentecost

Sermon: “Empowered Truth-Sayers”

Focus: Spirit

Reflection: The Family Continued

The Holy Spirit descends and suddenly the world is changed forever. The influence of the Spirit meant that the apostles became bold and strong and were able to speak with clarity communicating God’s love to all. This is our gift too. We have the gift of the Spirit in our lives, encouraging and empowering. As you prepare for worship today, invite the Spirit to fill you, inspire you and move you to share God’s love and grace with those you meet.

5-28-2017 Free Climbing Faithful

Sermon: “Free Climbing Faithful”

Focus: Inclusive

Reflection: The Family United

We hear again from Paul and again it may sound strident and uncompromising. But, the crux of the matter is that we are all united together through Jesus Christ, and through him we become one family together. This is the Good News! All—that is everyone! All humanity is part of this inheritance, and there is no difference of creed, color, race: we are all God’s children. As you prepare today, give thanks to God for this world wide family, and pray for those who do not realize the gift that is theirs for the taking.

Hymns We Will Sing:

*HYMN #246                        “Christ Is Alive!”                              (TRURO)

*HYMN #337                 “My Country ’Tis of Thee                        (AMERICA)

*HYMN #318                  “In Christ There Is No East or West”     (ST. PETER)
