Fall Launch Sunday

In lieu of a normal church service, Fall Launch Sunday introduces our Leadership Team, service opportunities over the coming year, and provides an occasion for us to share a meal together. We’ll begin in the conference room at 11 a.m.—note the change from our normal meeting time—to sing, share, and pray. During this short time together we won’t have our regular kids’ worship services, but we’ll provide activity bags for the kids. Then we’ll enjoy a potluck together up on the terrace where there will be activities to help our kids (and parents) enjoy this time together. Sign ups for the potluck will begin on Sunday, August 18th. Questions? Contact Pastor Mike.

If you’ve been mistreated, confused, angered, or wounded when it comes to sexual messaging in the church, you may find this book discussion interesting. Interested or have questions?

Book Discussion: The Universal Christ

In Richard Rhor’s new book, The Universal Christ, Rhor seeks to explain the humanity of the person, Jesus, and the eternal, Christ. Perhaps you’ve found yourself wondering: Is Christ simply Jesus’ last name? Or is it a revealing title that deserves our full attention? How is Christ’s function or role different from Jesus’? What does Scripture mean when Peter says in his very first address to the crowds after Pentecost that “God has made this Jesus . . . both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36)? Weren’t they always one and the same, starting at Jesus’ birth? If these are the kind of questions you find yourself asking or find interesting, please join our discussion! Questions? Contact Pastor Mike.

Post-Two-Services Potluck Celebration

One of the rhythms that we’re cultivating at Pearl Church is a common table, around which everyone belongs. In that spirit, potlucks are a wonderful way to spend time with old friends and an opportunity to make connections with newcomers. Whether you’ve been at Pearl for a long time or are brand new, we’d love for you to stay after church so that we can all share a meal together. To help us prepare, please sign up for our Post Two Services Potluck in the lobby, at the Connecting Table.

Pentecost Sunday

In the liturgical calendar, Pentecost marks the birthday of the church when we celebrate God's gift of the Holy Spirit. Red is the liturgical color for Pentecost as it reminds us of the Holy Spirit descending as tongues of fire on Christ’s disciples. We invite you to join us and many Christian traditions in wearing the color red to church as a way to celebrate this special day.

Two Services on Easter Sunday

We will hold two services on Easter Sunday, one at 9:15 a.m. and another at 10:45 a.m. Our regular kids’ program will be offered at the 9:15 a.m. service. The 10:45 a.m. service will be identical in content, but will not offer a kids’ program or child care. We encourage those who do not have kids to consider joining the second service, as we anticipate the first service to be more heavily attended.

Book Discussion: How the Bible Actually Works

At Pearl, one of the rhythms that we are cultivating is a sacred story, which is expressed in the Bible. But why do we desire to engage such an ancient and sometimes confusing book? What exactly is the Bible’s purpose? What is it attempting to say to us? How are we supposed to read problematic texts? These are great questions that we’ll consider together as we discuss Peter Enns book, How the Bible Actually Works. Questions? Contact Pastor Mike.

Special Educational Gala: A Conversation with Ecotrust

Pearl Church has been meeting in Ecotrust since 2004 but perhaps, like many at Pearl, you’re not quite sure what Ecotrust is about? What is Ecotrust doing in the world? How can we at Pearl be good neighbors to Ecotrust? What kind of meaningful work might we be able to participate in together? You are warmly invited to share in a wide-ranging conversation between Ecotrust’s Executive Director, Jeremy Barnicle and Pastor Mike. We’ll also open a portion of the time for Q and A. Please RSVP with Pastor Ben (benb@pearlchurch.org).
