Lee U-Church To Host An Evening Of Worship Nov. 17

U-Church Evening of Worship 2012.
U-Church Evening of Worship 2012.

The Lee University U-Church series will continue this month with An Evening of Worship on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

This student-led service is designed to bring attention and focus on a time of worship and communion for all who attend. 

“It is a time to gather before the Lord, giving Him the things we trust Him the least with, and letting God bring to light those things which are in the darkness,” said Josh York, U-Church director. 

This theme is based on 1 John 1:5-7 which states, “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Free childcare is available for all who attend.  For more information about childcare, please contact Christie Wyatt at cwyatt@leeuniversity.edu. 

Seating for U-Church events is first-come first-served. The service is a free, non-ticketed event, and the community is welcome to attend. The doors will open at 7 p.m.

For more information about U-Church or other campus ministries, please contact Joyce Lane at jlane@leeuniversity.edu or 614-8347.

Steve Ellison: When Your Pot Runs Dry

Jesus made His first public appearance and performed His first miracle at a wedding.  John 2:2 tells us that He showed up there because He was invited.  Jesus ought to be invited to every wedding, keeping in mind that it is up to the creature to conform his ideas of marriage to those of the Creator.  With that in mind, Jesus should be a welcomed guest at every wedding.  ...

Bob Tamasy: Forgiveness - The Gift You Give Yourself

The response by some family members and friends of the victims of the shootings at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, along with members of the congregation, has heartened many, confused some, and confounded others. One day after the shooter (whom I won’t name, since he’s already gotten enough notoriety) killed nine men and women, despite sitting among them for about an hour ... (click for more)

What Is #NoogaStrong

I've seen some recent posts asking exactly what Chattanooga Strong means. This week I have seen enough that I believe I can give you a definition of this glorious word.   As a city everyone will not always get along or agree. Often we may ask ourselves what is wrong with these nuts. Often we run across the rude, crude and ugly. But when tragic happens, we all come together ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Chanie's Puzzling Poem

Ronnie Joice was in a bar in north London when he spied a poem tacked to the wall. The more he studied it, the more it revealed and, suddenly, he was floored. I don’t need to tell you it has gone viral, cheering people up particularly in England, but it is fun to know it was written by an 11 th -grader at an all-girls school in New York. Chanie Gorkin first posted it on her page ... (click for more)
