Lenten Sermon Series:  Repeated Mistakes

The book of Judges is a tough book, because the people of Israel make the same mistakes over and over again. They just don’t seem to learn, or to listen to God.  It’s hard for us to admit that maybe we might be like them, at least some times.

Lent is a season of self-examination, making it a good time to learn from others who made repeated mistakes.  Let us be open to God’s word to us during Lent.

February 18:  Inherited Faith – The Israelites had received a faith from their ancestors.  We have also. The question becomes do we let our faith set us free.

February 25:  Becoming Bold – God calls us to be bold, just as the unique rulers of Israel were bold.

March 4:  God Empowers – You’ve heard of the Gideon’s Bible. Here we learn who the original Gideon was, and how God empowered him to do what was right.

March 11:  Keeping What Belongs to You – We have been given the Truth.  How we use it and what we do with the Truth matters.

March 18:  God Liberates – Too often, we want to negotiate with God.  “God, if you answer my prayer, then I will do this…”  But, God isn’t in the negotiating business.  God is in the business of liberating.

Underwood Hills Church Worships Joyfully

Underwood Hills Church gathers Sunday mornings to joyfully worship God, our Creator.  We praise God with a variety of music, a time with children and the message delivered in a variety of ways.  Our worship services engage the senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.  Music permeates the worship service.  Some Sundays, the scripture passage is read in the form of readers' theater.  Other Sundays, we might burn written prayers as an offering to God.  (Yes, fire in the sanctuary!)  You might take home a rock, a shell or a glass marble as a reminder to you of the gospel message from that Sunday morning.  Some Sundays, visual images will convey a message.   

We believe that Christ is present to us in bread and wine.  We celebrate The Lord's Supper on the first and third Sundays of the month.  This celebration brings us together around the table as friends in Christ.

Please join us in praising God on Sunday mornings!

Holy Week Services 

Palm/Passion Sunday, March 25, 10:30 am. We will remember Jesus' ride into Jerusalem and move to anticipating the coming week.  This is the beginning of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday/Good Friday Service, March 29, 7:00 pm.  On the night he was arrested, Jesus gave a new commandment that we love one another.  "Maundy" comes from the Latin word for commandment.  This night, we remember his words and commemorate the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples.  We will also remember his death on Good Friday.  

Easter Sunday, April 16, 6:30 am and 10:30 am.  Our Easter Sunrise service will be at 6:30 am in the garden in the backyard, around a bonfire.  A light breakfast will be served after the service – and hot coffee to warm up, too.  (Dogs on leashes are welcome at this service.)  We will also celebrate the resurrection at a full service at 10:30 am in the sanctuary.  You are invited to come to one or both services – they are distinctly different.  Easter is the highest holiday of the Christian year, celebrating God’s amazing victory over death through the resurrection of Jesus, his Son.
