Worship for Sunday, May 9, 2021 (Butterfly 4; Confirmation)

For Sunday, May 9, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “Hurry Up and Wait,” based on 2 Peter 3:8-13. Kids are so eager to grow up. Each year seems like forever for them. But metamorphosis is a process, and you can’t skip the stages. Like a caterpillar must become a chrysalis before becoming a butterfly, God gives us this time to work on our “stuff.” What do we need to do during this chrysalis time between pandemic and the after? This is the fourth Sunday in our spring series, “The Butterfly Effect.”

Pastor Park visit Gilda’s garden during the Children’s Time.

Confirmation students will be celebrated at both services for the God Moment – live at 8:30am, and pre-recorded at 11:00am. Download the confirmation insert (PDF).

Mother’s Day will also be celebrated with live flowers for all women who attend church, or drive through 30 minutes after the services.

Zoe de Boer, Melissa de Boer, Pam Klinger, and Cathy Novy lead music at both the 8:30a Classic and 11:00a Praise services.

Worship for Sunday, May 2, 2021 (Butterfly 3)

For Sunday, May 2, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “The Necessary Now” based on Acts 1:1-11. Resurrection and Pentecost get the headlines, but what about the time between? The disciples are eager for “next,” but Jesus tells them to live in the now. What have we learned during COVID and what do we want to keep? Between caterpillar and butterfly, we have to go through the chrysalis stage. This is the third Sunday in our spring series, “The Butterfly Effect.”

For the Kids’ Time and God Moment, Jessica Gobel helps us celebrate Camp Sunday. OUMC has a long tradition of sending kids to Methodist summer camps. The Men’s Fellowship will present a scholarship check. We’ll also see a short video from the men’s work day helping Pine Lake Camp get ready for the year.

Sandy Koster, Ned Laughery, Renee Kastenschmidt, and Peg Benz lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Zoe de Boer, Cathy Novy, and Pam Klinger lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.

We celebrate open communion during this service. All are welcome to participate! Please have something to eat and drink prepared to represent Christ – bread and grape juice or wine are traditional.
