Preparing for July 30

Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-16  (p. 1068, Pew Bible)

Sermon: “One Body”

Focus: “Living as a Faithful Community”

Reflection: Continuing on from last week’s idea thinking about what unites us and what makes us unique, this week focus on the part we play. It may be obvious: choir member, worship leader, children’s leader. It may be less obvious: children for the Sunday Club; members of the congregation. If any was not there then church would be less united. Pray about your role not only in church, but in your home and family; whether a senior member or the baby, each has a special place and the family would miss you. Thank God for every part of your family.

Preparing for July 23

July 23, 2017

Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-22  (p. 1067, Pew Bible)

Sermon: “Diversity in Unity”

Focus: The Institution of Peace

Reflection: We are all made in the image of God, yet we are all also unique. This week   look at your family. Maybe find some old photos of grandparents and great grandparents.

  • What unites you?
  • What make you distinctive?
  • When you look at the church family to which you belong, what unites us?
  • What makes us different?

Thank God for the person who unites us best: Jesus.



We’ll Worship at the Lake on July 16

FPCU Hosts the TAC Lake Service
On Sunday, July 16, 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 welcome!

Preparing for Worship

Scripture: Ephesians 1:1-14   (p. 1066, Pew Bible)

Sermon: One with Christ

Focus: “Entering the Flow of Praise”

Reflection: What do we do that makes church different from other activities we may be involved in? During worship over the next few weeks we will be finding ways to       know each other better. When you return home continue that by getting to know        your neighbors, or neighborhood. Find out or share a new thing with family or         friends.

Hymns We Will Sing:

*HYMN #610     “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing”                 (AZMON)
