January 17, 2023 Worship Brainstorming: “Mountaintop Stories”

All-Church Worship Brainstorming

“Mountaintop Stories: Where Heaven and Earth Meet”

An Epiphany series that explores “thin places” in our lives
Tues., Jan. 17, 2023 at LHUMC
12:00 p.m. Potluck
12:45-3:00 p.m. Brainstorming for Worship
February 5-19, 2023 (3 Sundays)

Sometimes specific moments and places are important in our faith journey.  Whether it’s a literal mountaintop or a figurative mountaintop, the spiritual “highs” where we experience God’s grace are formative.  These deep spiritual encounters can offer us a new perspective, a new view we’ve never seen before, a reward at the end of a journey (or the beginning of a new one), and more.  They are examples of “thin places” where the boundary between heaven and earth is blurry, and we are forever changed.

The worship brainstorming for this series will be held at church in the lounge. Members of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in the one-time commitment. The ideas generated at the brainstorming are used in worship.

We will have a potluck at noon.  Please bring a dish to share. Brainstorming is from 12:45 – 3:00 p.m. Safety protocols will be the same as Sunday morning worship.

Click here for the brainstorming packet or pick up a hard copy at church. Read the Scripture and Pastor Mary’s message synopses, and preview videos before we gather.

RSVPs are helpful but not mandatory. Sign up at church or contact the church office (213-798-2181 or Office@LakeHarborUMC.org) or Karen Booth.
