South Whidbey churches list weekend events

Getting away from stuff that doesn’t matter

Overstuffed with “stuff” and the bills to pay for “stuff?” Like to change perspective?

“Things spiritual and eternal are substantial… Substance is that which is eternal and incapable of discord and decay. Truth, Life, and Love are substance,” (“Science and Health”).

On Sunday, March 13, the Christian Science service examines why we don’t have to have more things in order to have more life, better health and a sense of self-worth without any sense of deprivation.

All are welcome to this joyful seeking of the kingdom of God, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” (Luke 12:31).

Services begin at 10:30 a.m. at 15910 Highway 525, just north of Bayview and across from Useless Bay Road.

Evolution Sunday’ is this weekend at UUCWI

At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island service on Sunday, Rev. Kit Ketcham will consider some of the ways the insights of Charles Darwin have affected Unitarian Universalist theology, inspiring a shift from the legends surrounding creation to the growing body of scientific knowledge about earth’s origins.

All are welcome. Values-based children’s religious exploration classes and childcare will be provided. The service is at 10 a.m. at 20103 Highway 525, just north of Freeland. Check www.whidbey.com/uucwi for more information.

Rev. Becker to give the lesson for Unity of Whidbey

Rev. Patty Becker will talk about “Right Speech” at the Unity of Whidbey service on Sunday.

Our power of speech and its right use has been addressed in the ethics codes of many world religions. It is recognized not only as a tool for communication, but also as a potent carrier of our creative impulses. It both glorifies and debases and is completely within our own control.

This Sunday, join Becker to learn how the conscious use of speech can transform your quality of life both spiritually and in the world.

Tadd CharetteNunn will provide the music, and Chris Nelson will be the platform assistant.

A Course in Miracles group meets from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

All are welcome. Visit Unity of Whidbey’s website at http://www.unityofwhidbeyisland.org for more information.

SWCC sermon on Sunday is based on Book of Joshua

Sunday’s sermon at South Whidbey Community Church is based on the Book of Joshua, Chapters Three and Four. Pastor Darrell Wenzek will speak on the topic, “Get Ready for a Miracle: living life on the edge sometimes comes with unexpected confirmations.”

Sunday worship at SWCC is from 10 to 11 a.m. and is preceded by an adult learning forum at 9 a.m., with Stan Walker leading a study in the book of First Corinthians, and Rick Zapata leading a study in the book of Genesis: the life of Abraham. These are open classes and everyone is invited. Home Bible studies are also offered; check the church website for times and locations.

All SWCC sermons and special adult forum events are recorded, and are available on the website. SWCC is a local independent, non-denominational church that welcomes everyone and gathers for worship at the Deer Lagoon Grange, 5142 Bayview Road.
