“In the Beginning: (God’s) Family Drama”

All Church Brainstorming for June-September 2017
Monday, May 22, 2017

Pastor Mary and Ivan Ivanov’s house

6:00 pm Cookout/Potluck Dinner
7:00-9:00 pm Brainstorming for Worship

Genesis gives us the story of how and what God created and the great flood. It also tells the story of God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and his sons (the twelve tribes of Israel). But as with any family, there is drama and dysfunction. It is like reality TV at its best (and worst!). It is real life and real faith – sometimes messy, sometimes beautiful, always a blessing even when we can’t fully see the end result.  What do all of these men and women teach us about our own humanity and God’s faithfulness?

Join us at 6:00 pm for dinner. Ivan is grilling lots of meat and bread.  Please bring a dish to pass.

RSVP’s are helpful but not mandatory. Contact the church office (213-798-2181 or lakeharbor@aol.com).  Please read the scripture and message synopses and preview the videos before we gather if at all possible.
