C2C Program:

     “Called-To-Care” (C2C) is the UCC program for lay church members to minister to the sick, hospitalized, grieving, and others in need.  It is used in many different congregations and nursing home facilities throughout the country to train and organize lay visitation.
    In order to visit people on behalf of the church, members need to complete at least session #1 & #2, which addresses such issues as confidentiality, initiating a visit, basic do’s and don’t’s of a hospital or home visit, and more.

 

Elders:

     In order to have standing as an Elder (in order to be recognized by the "Elder" title/designation) in the United Church of Christ of Robesonia, all Elders (whether on Consistory or not) are to complete at least session #1 & #2 and have CHYLD Worker Status.  All elders who are providing communion are to also complete session #7, which goes over the serving of communion.

 

Joining the Visitation Care Team Ministry:

     Although all elders vow to assist in prayers and visits as a part of their ordination vows, other members are also welcome to participate in our VCT Ministry.  However, to make sure our visits are safe and appropriate, VCT members do need: (1) to be trained in visiting (and have completed at least sessions #1 & #2 before their first visit); (2) be approved to visit by the Spiritual Council; and (3) have approved CHYLD Worker Status by Christian Ed through our Safe Conduct process to visit the sick and vulnerable within our church.

     After worship on Sunday, September 17 we will be celebrating in our annual "Ketchup Sunday", with hot dogs, ketchup, and other refreshments.

     We hope this fellowship time will give us a chance to catch-up with each other after our summer vacations.  To help with catching up, you are invited to email the church office pictures from your summer vacation at office@sprucc.org.  If you have multiple picures, please do send them to the church.  We will include them in a summer vacation slide show which will be presented during the fellowship time.

     Ketchup Sunday is also about catching up with our missed offerings.  If you look through your offering envelope packet, you may find a few from the summer that you haven't yet used.  If so, you are invited and encouraged to bring those with you on September 17 (with an offering in them) and place them in the offering plate to be blessed and uplifted to God, and in doing so "Catch-Up" in your support of Christ's ministries through his church.  If you cannot attend, you may also mail those offerings to the office or contribute electronically.

     Whether you submit pictures or not, and whether you bring your envelopes or not, we hope that you will come, join in the refreshments, and catch up with your church family as we begin the fall.

COVID Safety Precaution Level for this Sunday = Low

    Pentecost is the day that commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus' disciples as recorded in the New Testament of the Bible.  It also marks the birth of the Christian Church. 

     It was on the 50th day after Easter when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles as they were praying together.  They received the Spirit's gift of speaking in various languages (tongues), and they immediately began preaching about Jesus Christ to the Jewish people who had gathered in masses  in Jerusalem from all over the world.  The crowds were in the city for the Feast of Shavuot.

     This Sunday also begins teh church's summer schedule.  Worship will continue at 10:15am, but there will be NO Sunday school, and NO Junior Worship for the summer months.  Our regular Sunday schedule will resume the Sunday after Labor Day (September 10).

Hybrid: Live StreamPhone StreamFacebook Live, & In-person
COVID Safety Precaution Level for this Sunday = Low

     On Sunday, May 21 we will have our annual celebration of the Ascension of Jesus Christ.
     Ascension Day is celebration of the day when Jesus took his disciples to Bethany and blessed them, as he was lifted up into heaven.  This was forty days after Easter Sunday, and ten days before Pentecost.  After Jesus was lifted into heaven, the disciples gathered in worship with great joy!  This was the last day that Jesus would be physically walking the earth with his disciples, and we are reminded in this scripture by two men in white robes (presumably angels) that Jesus would in the future return in the same way in which he was seen going into heaven.
    The Ascension Sunday worship service includes the ceremony of extinguishing the Paschal Candle, which has been lit every Sunday during the season of Easter, symbolizing that Jesus is no longer physically present with us, for he has ascended!  From Pentecost through Epiphany, the Paschal Candle will be placed near the baptismal font, symbolizing that it is through our baptism that we ascend with Christ.  During the rest of the church year, we will only be lighting the Paschal Candle for baptisms and funerals/memorials, as a part of that symbolism of ascending with Christ at the time of our earthly death, through our baptism.
    This is an important day for all of the disciples of Christ to gather together as one body.  For it is a day that we show one another our mutual support, and our life together as the Body of Christ here on earth, now that he has Ascended.  It is important for us to follow the example of those first disciples, and gather, worship, pray, and fellowship together on this day to prepare for the Holy Spirit coming into our lives.  It is also important for us to gather together and be centered on the Spirit, for as we are about to enter the longest season of the church (Pentecost), the Holy Spirit is about to send us out into the world in mission and ministry, and we need the strength of the Spirit and the support of one another to faithfully live out God’s calling in that season.
    We hope for all to gather together in worship, praise, prayer, and fellowship, as we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord! Alleluia!

     For information about the worship services, please contact Terry Pastor (Vice Chair of the Worship Committee) or any member of the Worship Committee.

 


 

Church World Service Blankets of Hope

CWS Blankets

Fund Raiser

May 14 to June 18, 2022

     Church World Service (CWS) was born in the wake of the devastation of World War II.  At that time 17 denominations came together to work in partnership to help those torn and crippled by the war.  With the passage of time the specifics of their programs have shifted and evolved, but the CWS family has grown.  Their foundation of collaboration and welcome has remained unshakable.  They proudly serve as the toolbox that our neighbors near and far use to build healthy, dignified and safe lives.  They stand ready to help families around the world recover from disasters and displacement.  CWS Blankets are all about sharing love with a blanket - a simple act of kindness for those going through a difficult and devastating experience.

     From Mother's Day until Father's Day, the Evangelism and Mission (E&M) Committee will be sponsoring a fund drive.  We are hoping that you will consider remembering or honoring your mother, father or loved one by donating $10 for each sponsored blanket.  A sample CWS blanket will be on display at church during this time period.  For every $10 donation, a red heart will be attached to the blanket.  At the end of the collection period, a list of the donors and those being honored or remembered will be published in the bulletin.

     By honoring your loves one(s) we can help bring hope to people that feel disenfranchised, who are suffering the loss of their homes due to natural disasters, or those who are seeking refuge in a welcome center anywhere in the world!

     To place an order please click on this CWS Blanket Fund Raiser Form link. 

     Print out the form and send it to the church along with your payment.  Please note the details found on the order form.  All orders must be paid for when placed.  Paper copies of the order form are also available on the upstairs hallway table at church, or you may contact the church office and a copy will be sent to you.  All orders are due by Sunday, June 18.   Paper copies should be mailed to the church at:    

                   St. Paul's UCC, 301 West Penn Avenue, Robesonia, PA 19551

RisenChristBySea 2What is Holy Humor Sunday?

     Holy Humor Sunday is an opportunity to let our hair down - way down - with a very upbeat and fun service, following the somber season of Lent.  It is a day of humor and light-hearted fun. 

     Holy Humor Sunday shares its roots with that of April Fool’s Day.  When Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, he defeated death, and in doing so the Great Deceiver (i.e. the Devil) was deceived - bested by the best trick ever.  From deceiving the Great Deceiver on Easter, April Fool’s Day came to be celebrated on April 1st, and Holy Humor Sunday came to be most commonly celebrated on the Sunday following Easter Sunday.
     This ancient Easter custom was begun by the Greeks in the early centuries of Christianity.  For centuries Holy Humor Sunday has been celebrated by Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant countries going by a variety of names, including "Bright Sunday" (the Sunday after Easter) and “days of joy and laughter” with parties and picnics the week after Easter to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.  Churchgoers and pastors played practical jokes on each other, drenched each other with water, told jokes, sang, and danced.
     The custom was written about by early church theologians, including Augustine, Gregory of Nyssa, and John Chrysostom.  These theologians called it “Risus paschalis - the Easter laugh,” referring to God playing a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead.
     The custom began to fade by the mid 1900s in many churches.  In 1988 the Fellowship of Merry Christians, which bi-monthly publishes The Joyful Noiseletter, began to encourage churches to resurrect “Bright Sunday” celebrations and to call it “Holy Humor Sunday.”  The first theme they encouraged was: “Jesus is the LIFE of the party.”  The Fellowship of Merry Christians encourages churches in general to uplift the joy and humor found in scripture and in our Christian faith.  You can learn more on their website at: https://www.joyfulnoiseletter.com/hhsunday.asp
     We have been celebrating Holy Humor Sunday annually since 2014.  Previous themes and pictures from those worship services can be found on the “Photos” page of our website.

     The Worship Committee begins considering themes each January for the next Holy Humor Sunday, and we welcome individuals to share ideas.  For the past few years our youth group or confirmation class came up with and developed the theme

Maundy Thursday

Thursday, April 6, 2023 at 6:30pm

Image result for maundy thursday clipart     On Maundy Thursday Jesus gathered with the disciples for the Feast of Passover.  They shared in a meal.  He took bread, blessed it and broke it, and instituted the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion).  He then took his disciples to a garden to pray, where he was betrayed and crucified.
     On Thursday, April 6 at 6:30pm, we will begin worship in the Fellowship Hall at table with one another.  We will have a free light meal and communion.  Then we will process to the sanctuary for Tenebrae - the service of shadows - where we will pray, hear the last words of Christ, and strip the altar in preparation of his crucifixion, as the sanctuary slowly becomes shrouded in darkness.
     We hope you will join us for this meaningfully spiritual service.

     The meal is provided by the church; there is no charge for the meal, and there is no need to bring any food along with you.  As always, visitors, friends, and members are all equally welcome.

     Please note, with having Tenebrae included in our Maundy Thursday worship service, we will not be having a separate Good Friday worship service.

     Due to the logistics of starting in the fellowship hall and moving to the sanctuary, the downstairs portion of this worship service will be in-person only.  However, we plan to live stream the upstairs Tenebrae portion of our worship service, which you can view by clicking on this Tenebrae Live Stream link.

One Great Hour of Sharing OfferingOne-Great-Hour-of-SharingB

Sunday, March 19, 2023 during worship   

     One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) supports partners in countries with ministries that fund health, education and agricultural development, emergency relief, refugee ministries and both international and domestic disaster response, administered by Wider Church Ministries, Global Sharing of Resources.

     This is one of our national UCC "Five for Five" annual offerings, and is received on the Fourth Sunday of Lent.

     In Galatians, the Apostle Paul encourages followers of Jesus to generously help and care for others.  Though there is great need in the world and we can grow weary because we do not know how to help, God's Spirit energizes and re-energizes us in every season.

     We can make a difference.  We do make a differance.  Your generosity makes all the difference.  Your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing provide immediate aid and long-term support to people experiencing hunger, thirst, disaster, or crisis around the world.

     The need has never been greater.  The opportunity is now.  It's time to share.

So let's not allow ourselves to get

fatigued doing good.  At the right

time we will harvest a good crop

if we don't give up...

Galatians 6:9

     We will also be noting the one year anniversary of the war against Ukraine, and invite your prayers for peace, freedom, and healing of people and nations.  For more information about our support click on this Ukraine Relief Aid link.

     Lent is the 40 days (plus Sundays) from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday (the Saturday before Easter).  Our scripture reading for the First Sunday in Lent is from Matthew 4:1-11, where we hear about Jesus going into the wilderness for 40 days and then being tempted by Satan, afterwhich Jesus begins his ministry.  The 40 days of Lent are based upon that wilderness experience.  During the 40 days of Lent, as Christians we seek to strengthen our spiritual disciplines in order to strengthen our faith life and to show our deep sincere gratitude for the self-sacrifice that Jesus made for us not only on Good Friday, but throughout his life.  Our increase of spiritual disciplines often include: participating in additional worship services, increased almsgiving, increased prayer, increased study of scripture, increased service to others, and/or fasting and using those resources we would have spent on ourselves to bless the lives of others.

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at 6:30pm

Hybrid: Live StreamPhone StreamFacebook LiveZoom& In-person

AshWed Palm_BlackCross     Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent.  The season of Lent includes the 40 days and six Sundays before Easter.  It is a season of penitence as we reflect upon our personal sins, which led to the need for the sacrifice of Jesus’ life for us upon the cross.  The root word of “Lent” means “to lengthen,” referring to the lengthening of days as we anticipate the longer days of spring and the new life granted through the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter -- moving from darkness to light. 

     During the worship service on Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30pm, ashes will be placed in the sign of the cross on the forehead or back of the hand of those who wish to receive them.  The minister will say, "Remember that you are dust, and unto dust, you shall return."  We will also share communion together.  We will also be sharing in Holy Communion this evening, as the last meal before beginning our Lenten fast.  For those communing at home, you are invited to have your own bread and wine or grape juice for the pastors to bless during the Live Stream.

     If you would like to learn more about the use of ashes on Ash Wednesday, please click on the following link, "Why Ashes on Ash Wednesday".  For the YouTube Live Stream of this worship service click on this Ash Wednesday Live Stream link.

     On Ash Wednesday also begins the first in a series of dialogues between characters in the Bible.  This year the series being offered is entitled, “Couples in the Bible”.  The dialogues will take place each Wednesday evening during the worship service from  March 1 to March 29 at 6:30pm.  The first in the series will be a dialogue between Jesus and Martha.  Rev. Mary Etta Mest is the author of these dialogues and they are both insightful and entertaining.  Please join us as the characters change each Wednesday evening during Lent.

     For more information about the worship services throughout the season of Lent, please contact Terry Pastor (Vice Chair of the Worship Committee) or any member of the Worship Committee.

Make sure it is labeled with your name and kind of soup or creation, and place it in the kitchen area. It will be plugged in and stay warm during the worship service.  After worship we will gather to enjoy the varietyof crockpot delicacies.  Large bowls and small bowls will be available so that you may sample as many or as few items as you wish.  Our best year was when we had 19 crockpots of soup/chili.  Let's try to beat that this year!  If you don't have a crockpot or you're not much of a cook, you may instead bring in crackers or bread or a dessert.  You will have plenty of time to enjoy this meal and still see the real Super Bowl!  Game time is set for 6:30pm ET.  So no excuses.  Please plan to attend.  The food is always good and the fellowship is GREAT!  Please sign the sign-up sheet in the vestibule or call the church office so that we may better plan this event.

CommunionClipArt-012Youth Communion Classes

Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 9:00am

    Pastor Ben Motz is offering classes for children, teens, and young adults who have not yet been confirmed, but who would like to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  The classes give the opportunity for youth to have an understanding and greater reverence for the sacrament before participating.
    If you are unsure whether participating in communion is right for your child at this time, please note that youth do not need to commune after taking the class.  You can come to the class, learn more, and then decide afterwards.  However, if you do wish to commune, unconfirmed youth need to participate in the communion class or complete the confirmation program, so that they have a more complete understanding of what this Sacrament is about.

    If you would like to participate in the class, but are unable to attend on January 29, please contact the church office or Pastor, as with enough interest, the Pastor will hold another Youth & Communion Class on the following Sunday, Feburary 5 at 9:00am.
    For more details about children and communion, you can pick up a copy of our church’s “Children & Communion” booklet from the church office.   For more information, please contact the Pastor at 610-621-5770 orPastorMotz@sprucc.org.
