This is a new group forming  through JFPC. You do not have to be a member of the church to participate. Be a part of their inaugural gathering.

Dear JFPC Friends and Family,
We have officially entered the darkest days of the year, averaging only around 9
hours of daylight each day. I know the physical darkness of the season affects the
emotional and spiritual well-being of many people. We need the Light, and when it is
absent, we long for it.
Advent is a season of yearning, of watching and waiting, of hope and expectation that
the Light will return. Yet it is a time spent largely in darkness. This year, our Advent
theme will be focused not on the Light of the World (That’s Epiphany!) but on the

“Holiness of Darkness.” We’ll look at how God is always at work, even, and espe-
cially, in darkness.

Pastor, author, and artist Jan L. Richardson writes in her book Night Visions, “I be-
lieve that Christ came not to dispel the darkness but to teach us to dwell with integri-
ty, compassion, and love in the midst of ambiguity. The One who grew in the fertile

darkness of Mary’s womb knew that darkness is not evil of itself. Rather, it can be-
come the tending place in which our longings for healing, justice, and peace grow and

come to birth.”
This Advent, many of you are dwelling in different forms of darkness. We’ve known
a lot of change, loss, and disruption in our congregation and in our lives this year. In
Advent, as we watch and wait for the return of the Light, may we become aware of
God’s holy presence in the darkness. May we use this time to be still, to
acknowledge and tend our longings for healing, justice, peace, and love – in our lives
and in the world.
In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Lynne

World Communion Lessons

Come Join Our Choir!

FAITH AND FITNESS GROUP FORMING

     Many of us have recently come to the conclusion that we could be taking better care of our “temples of God” (bodies).  In other words, we know we’re out of shape and we want to do something about it.  Whether you want to shed a few pounds, build up endurance prior to a big trip, or just make exercising more meaningful and fun, you are invited to join us as we walk and pray for our community – growing both a physical and spiritual discipline.

     This is open to all regardless of ability.  We’ll start slow and short for those who are beginners and work our way up in endurance and strength.  We’ll meet THURSDAYS AT NOON at the Hillsdale College BIERMANN ATHLETIC CENTER TRACK beginning on August 15th.  Bring your walking shoes!

1st Sunday of the month

Communion Sunday

 

Grief Group Our congregation has suffered significant losses in the past couple of years.  Many in our midst are grieving – the loss of loved ones, jobs, relationships, health.  If you are in grief, (over anything), you are invited to JFPC’s Grief Group.  We have no curriculum, no agenda, no purpose other than to listen, to support each other, and to offer a safe place to grieve openly. We will meet Wednesdays at 1:15pm.  (Come earlier for a crêpe and coffee

Back by popular demand – Wednesday 10:30 am Bible Study begins May 8. In May and June we will be journeying through the book of Genesis.  All are welcome
