“The Parables: Messages of Hope, Help, & Healing”

Rev. John Shaver

Live Stream Worship Sunday, May 10, at 9:30 am

BULLETIN WATCH NOW LISTEN happy-mothers-day For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.  – Psalm 139: 13-14


Dear SDUMC Family and Friends, I hope this finds you well, and as always, prayers are with you. Amid our physical distancing, it is a blessing to know and feel the spiritual connection with you all (of course, the love of God that always surrounds us). Even though we may miss some of our unique traditions that this coming Sunday usually brings, we’ve been working as a Worship and A/V Team to bring you joy in some new ways.

We’ll continue our sermon series, The Parables: Messages of Hope, Help & Healing, and I am blessed to be able to share words of wisdom from Rev. Faith, Rev. Joanne, and Rev. Melanie. We will have some other surprises to celebrate this special day. Invite your mom, grandma, sister, or friend to join in a Facebook Watch Party this week (or share in the chat during Worship on our Facebook Page) or at encinitaschurch.com.

I hope you’ll join us at 9:30 a.m. for our Livestream Worship (or later in the day) as we celebrate God’s gift of community and the women (teachers, mothers, pastors, mentors, grandmothers, aunts, friends, and others) who have been a significant part of shaping our Grace-filled theology and spiritual formation.

Have a blessed weekend!

Grace and Peace, John

PS We also have some other exciting events plans for the coming weeks and I hope you’ll look through the E-news today.
