Creation Month continues at Douglas UCC. This Sunday at 10 AM, we worship with the storm. We sing with the winds, the clouds, and the thunder. We feel the awesome events of nature. We experience the stillness before the storm, the frightening fury of the winds, and the destructive aftermath of the tornado. We experience God’s presence in all these things. We experience God’s presence in the storm. Message: Pastor Sal. Special Music: Pam Chappell.
Please join us on Saturday, September 21, for the Adopt-a-Beach Clean-Up of Oval Beach and Douglas Beach. We'll be working from 9 AM till Noon. If you can help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your phone number, so we can reach out in case of rescheduling.
We hope you can join us after worship this Sunday, as we welcome authors Larry and Sandy Feldman, who will be discussing their book, Building Bridges Across the Racial Divide, at noon in the Friendship Hall.
The book provides a review of theory and research on methods to reduce prejudice and describes ways to bring together people from all racial groups to share positive experiences. This is a free event, and all are welcome!
