Women, men, boys and girls lined the streets waving their palms and shouting hosanna which means blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord. But let us fast forward, as we continue to deal with COVID-19, heightened racial tensions and the rise of white nationalism, is there a message for us in this ancient story? Rev. June Cooper is the Executive Director of City mission and ordained American Baptist Minister. with standing in the United Church of Christ.

Easter Sunday Service: Hope Springs Eternal @ Facebook Live
Apr 4 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Easter story is one of perennial hope. The followers of Jesus had witnessed his death, given up and left, and his resurrection rekindled hope. 2000 years later, we are witnessing hope arising this Spring out of the many losses of this pandemic, the many deaths of all kinds. As more of us are vaccinated, we feel hope springing up in us again, filling us with gratitude and connecting us deeply to this timeless story. Come celebrate with us! Rev. Lisa preaching.

Please check back on Sunday morning for the Order of Service.

Sunday Service: True Wealth @ Facebook Live

Rev. William Barber, leader of the Poor People’s Campaign, tells us: “We need a moral movement across this nation. A movement that is about the moral fabric of our society guided by a deeply moral…vision of what’s possible.” What is our moral duty to those historically impoverished in our country? Our relationship to personal wealth, the wealth of this congregation, and of our nation? We’ll explore what we value most and how a deeper relationship to true wealth can help us live into our values. Rev. Lisa preaching.
