Bible Study - June 7, 7:30pm

On Wednesday the 7th, feel free to come to the church to our continual study of the book of Revelation. In this study we will continue Chapter 14. What does this all mean? Come and see!

Red Cross Blood Drive - May 16

According to the American Red Cross, a total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the US, and more than 38,000 blood donations are needed each day. If you are able, please consider donating blood at Ivyland on May 16, from 2-7pm. Signing up is possible at redcrossblood.org (Sponsor code: ivyland new church), or sign up on the sheet at the church in the community room. Hosting these drives is also a fun way of introducing people to our lovely church. If you are interested in volunteering at the registration table, or donating goodies for the canteen table, or even calling donors from a list ahead of time, please speak to Ryan or Jane. Thank you!

Palm Sunday Service and Clothing Drive, April 9

Join us on Palm Sunday for our service at 10am. We will begin this traditional service with a procession where people may come up to the chancel with palm fronds (provided) and lay them down on the chancel floor. People are encouraged to bring used clothing items to lay down along side the palm fronds, just like they did for Jesus in His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. These clothing items will be collected afterwards and donated to Good Stuff Thrift, whose proceeds from sales directly benefit local charities that help children. Feel free to bring extra bags of clothing as there will be a donation bin at the church. Come and be a part!

The Life of Emmanuel Swedenborg, Jan 29

To honor Swedenborg's birthday, all are invited to stick around after church on the 29th to hear Suzy Laidlaw speak on the life of Swedenborg. Who was he? Why was he chosen to be THE revelator? What was happening in Sweden at that time? Come and learn more about Swedenborg and many details that surrounded his all important role, a role which has significantly aided the flourishing of the New Church on earth. This talk will begin at around 11:30 in the Sunday School room.

Shift of Heart - Week 7

It isn't always fun to be a better person, but God promises that if we change our ways, He'll change our heart.

Shift of Confidence- Week 6

We only gain real confidence in our abilities when those abilities are put to the test. Jacob was tested, and asked for a blessing. So should we.

Shift of Motivation - Week 5

After spending years with Uncle Laban, Jacob now sees that his education is paying off. Likewise, after we spend time learning how to be a good person, we have to shift our efforts to actually BEING a good person.

Shift of Expectations - Week 4

Okay, so now you've got a goal and an expectation of reaching that goal. How do you deal with it when things don't work out the way you planned?

Shift of Focus - Week 3

What, or rather, who do you want to be? Try not think "doctor" or "lawyer" or "football player", try instead to think of how you want to feel. Do you want to be a more courageous person? Or a more compassionate person? Jacob illustrates how a shift of focus can make the goal a reality.

God uses others to connect to you! - Week 2

Feeling far away from God? Feeling like life has spun you around and left you confused? So did Jacob, and guess what God told him in a dream...
