"Woman, thou art loosed!" Jesus declares in Sunday's Gospel, as a woman is miraculously healed of her afflictions. Many of us feel bound or burdened by circumstances in our lives, but we have the power to be loosed and lifted to a Higher Place. Come join us this Sunday at 9 AM or 11 AM, as we learn how to "let loose" and set ourselves free. Special Music by Nancy Plantinga. Coffee Hour outside between the two services.
We are excited to announce that PETER BLACK is the new Director of Music at Douglas UCC!
Peter has been the pianist at our church since 2004, and his performances each week are often the highlight of our Sunday worship.
We are so grateful to Peter for his willingness to step into this new role.
Members of our Douglas UCC family joined Peter behind the piano at his other Sunday gig at Marro's in Saugatuck. Great to begin and end your Sunday with the music of Peter Black!
Thank you to all who attended last week's Movie Night for a screening of the documentary, "Traces of the Trade," facilitated by our church's Social Justice Team. More than 25 people took part, and a lively discussion followed.
Great to welcome Gloria Larrieu to our rotation of special musicians. Her stirring rendition
last Sunday of "People Get Ready" already has more than 100 views on our YouTube channel.
Congratulations to our Douglas UCC church member, Jack Ridl, who was officially proclaimed the very first "Poet Laureate" of the City of the Village of Douglas this past week. More than 20 Douglas UCC church members were on hand for the proclamation at City Hall.
This week, the True North Women's Group traveled to the Muskegon Museum of Art to see the permanent exhibit and a special exhibit of female artists titled Rising Voices. Our church member, Maryjo Lemanski, was kind enough to share her expertise and enthusiasm and guide us through the exhibits. Our visit to the museum was followed by lunch together at the Lakehouse. It was a wonderful day! New members always welcome!
