In this Sunday's Gospel story, Jesus tells the "Parable of the Rich Fool." Is money really the root of all evil? Are material possessions really a stumbling block on the spiritual path? It is really that difficult for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven? Come join us this Sunday at 9 AM or 11 AM as we explore together what a prosperous and abundant life really looks like, and how we can manifest it now. Coffee Hour outside between the two services.
As you can see from the video above, we are having so much fun this summer at Coffee Hour outside between the two services. Be sure to stop by our Creation Justice Team's "Gardening is Giving" table where we're sharing the abundance from our gardens.
Our Director of Music, Jeff Spangler, has sold his home in Saugatuck and will be moving full-time to Palm Springs, California. Jeff has served our church for 13 years, so he will certainly be missed by all of us at Douglas UCC.
Jeff's final Sunday with us will be August 11. We will be honoring Jeff during our worship services that Sunday, as well as celebrating him with a cake and gifts during Coffee Hour between the two services.
The Douglas UCC Social Justice Team will be hosting a screening of the PBS Documentary, Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North, on Friday evening August 16th in the Friendship Hall at 6:30 p.m. This documentary was shown on PBS several years ago, and it is still very relevant to help understand White Privilege in this country and around the world. Please sign the sheet in the Friendship Hall if you plan on attending. Thank you.
Our Annual Church Picnic is Wednesday, August 7, from 6 to 8 PM at Beery Field in Douglas. We need to know how many of you plan to attend, as we need to know how much food and drink to buy.
Please sign the sheet in the Friendship Hall on Sunday if you plan to attend the picnic.
Our very own Pastor Sal will be a guest this Saturday, August 3, on the "Morning Grind" Radio Show. He will be talking about all the wonderful things happening at Douglas UCC this summer. Tune in to 92.7 FM, "The Van," at 8:30 a.m.
