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.
