Weekly Worship - September 10, 2022

Little Chapel

Sunday, September 11 is Fellowship Sunday at the 11 a.m. service of the Little Chapel by the Lake.

We have welcomed back Pastor Pete and his family after his month long hiatus visiting churches and family up north. The after service potluck will be held at El Dorado.

We are located at Ajijic-Chapala Highway 10 in Chula Vista. 

Donations for our food mission in San Juan Tecomatlan are always gladly accepted via our big purple box in front of the Chapel.  Thank you for continuing to contribute to this worthy cause. Thank you generous helpers for going to San Juan Tecomatlan this past Tuesday.

Tuesdays, 5:30 p.m., a small group meets at the Chapel for fellowship and prayer. This week’s topic, “Joy.” Is this word synonymous with happiness?

St. Andrew’s Anglican

Reverend James Francis Twyman will preach and celebrate September 4. Services begin 10 a.m.

Wednesdays, from September 7 to October 12, St. Andrew’s will offer classes on what it means to be an Anglican. Newcomers will learn more about our Book of Common Prayer, how we pray, the sacraments we celebrate, the creeds, and much more. Rev. Michael Schirmacher and Rev. Moore will conduct the classes. Classes begin at 1 p.m. and a light lunch will be served. If you’re interested in attending, let us know the time of day you prefer: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our feeding program collects non-perishable food items to donate to “Operation Feed,” which helps about 140 families in and around San Juan Cosalá. Donations of rice, beans or cash, which allows us to buy at bulk for the lowest prices to help feed even more families, is especially welcome. If you opt for a cash donation, envelopes marked “Rice” or “Beans” are available every Sunday. If you sign your name to the envelope, your offering will be recorded as a church donation.

Every donation or consignment you make to St. Andrew’s Todo Bueno Resale Shop benefits the Outreach Ministry of St. Andrew’s, enabling our parish to financially support a number of Lakeside charities.  Open Tues.- Sat. 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.

Coffee and Cookies Ministry: A wonderful time for meeting friends and greeting newcomers.

Lakeside Presbyterian

Pastor Carolyn will talk This week about Relentless love. We often say “God is love,” which is as awesome as it is true. But do we really, deeply understand what God’s love looks like? God gave us a picture of it in the book of Hosea—and it’s shocking. As we continue through our sermon series on the books of the Bible, this Sunday we will go through the book of Hosea to learn how God loves us.

Service starting time is 9:30 a.m. for the English-language service and 11 a.m. for the Spanish-language service.

The live English service at Calle San Jorge 250 in Riberas del Pilar, also streams each Sunday on Facebook at Lakeside Presbyterian Church-Chapala or at lpc-chapala.org.

If you need a ride, call  376-106-0853 before 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Unitarians

Sunday, September 11, the topic is “Belonging.” Although western culture reveres the idea of the rugged individualist, the reality is that we all depend on our groups to survive and thrive. It is our belonging to families, communities, nations, and ultimately the world that makes life worthwhile. What and to whom do we belong, and why? We’ll explore the nature of belonging, its benefits and its complexities. Rev. Matt will be presenting via video from North Carolina and Jane Castleman will be the service leader.

Next week, David Ellison will speak on the history of Mexican Independence Day.

Lake Chapala Unitarian Universalist Fellowship services are Sundays, 10:30 a.m. In-person services are now available at Hidalgo 261, Riberas del Pilar. No reservation or masks are required.

Jewish Congregation

Lake Chapala Baptist

Pastor Linton’s sermon last week was all about how we Christians can make ourselves shining beacons to the world… and the responsibility we all own to do exactly that.

“Let your lights shine, no matter the circumstances!” he exhorted us. “Search yourself for brightness and darkness, and align yourself with the light. This is how the holy spirit convicts us, guides us, and brings us to spiritually maturity.

“Are you a clear light, shining like a lighthouse on a high hill? We are called to be light-bearers and peacemakers, portraying the beauty of Christ in our lives. Let your life prove your testimony! Don’t complain. Don’t question, don’t argue. That is submission to God’s will. Filled with the joy of the Lord, so we shine!”

Share memorable weekly sermons, uplifting music, and an ongoing thirst for true wisdom at 10:45 a.m. at the Lake Chapala Baptist Church. Santa Margarita 147, Riberas del Pilar.
