GUILFORD -- "Persistence" as the key to justice is the theme of the 10 a.m. worship service on Sunday, Oct. 13, at Guilford Community Church, U.C.C.. Pastor Lise Sparrow will lead the service. The scripture in Isaiah 40:27-31 and the parable of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8 illuminate the force for justice which permeates the Christian faith and is the basis of our stewardship of the church.
The middle school Sonic Sundaze will open the service with a rock version of "All Creatures of Our God and King" in celebration of the focus this fall on endangered species. The choir, under the direction of Andy Davis, will offer two anthems, "Somebody’s Knockin’ at My Door" and "Guilford."
The Sunday School will celebrate the amazing cougar as they complete the mural of Noah’s Ark. After church, all families are welcome to join in apple picking to benefit the Drop In Center.
Also on Sunday, after the service, the Rev. Phillip Wilson will offer the first of two presentations on progressive Christianity. Sunday’s presentation will focus on "What do you have to believe to be a Christian." Everyone is welcome.
Guilford Community Church is an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ and is fully handicapped accessible and committed to providing ASL interpreter and hearing assistance, if given notice of interest ahead.
The church is located one mile south of exit 1 on Route 5 just in back of the Guilford Country Store. For more information call 802-257-2776 or check the website at www.guilfordchurch.org.
