‘THE COST OF DISCIPLESHIP’

Church is not a building, it is a “Community of Faith”. So no matter where you gather, whether it be in a field, whether it be in a garden, whether it be in a basement, whether it be at a Rec Center, or whether it be in a beautiful church building, it takes the people to make the church.

Come this coming Sunday, September 2nd, 2018 at ‘HIGH NOON’, 12:00 p.m. and hear why being a Disciple is COSTLY. It takes more than sitting in a Pew and keeping it warm, it takes more than singing in a Choir, it takes more than saying you are a “Christian”, it takes more than praying, it takes more than studying the Word, it takes more than being a Theologian, it takes more than observing the holidays, it takes a lot more to be a Disciple.

Learn what those requirements are by coming and joining in on the worship service led by Pastor Karen Schneider. Come and enjoy the fellowship, the meditation, the quiet and the celebration of Christ’s Life by joining us in great love.

LEAVE YOUR BAGGAGE AT THE DOOR, LEAVE YOUR CARES AND WORRIES AT THE DOOR, LEAVE THE OUTSIDE WORLD AT THE DOOR……AND COME IN FOR AN HOUR OR TWO OF COMFORT, LOVE AND COMMUNITY OF FAITH TOGETHERNESS.

Blessings, Pastor Karen

“ON THE FENCE”

Are you committed to Christ or do you go halfway. If you are “On the Fence” then you need to come hear Reverend Karen talk about your journey with your Jesus. You probably need some soul searching to discover where you really stand.

Join us at “HIGH NOON”, 12:00 p.m. on Sunday at 1955 East Arizona Avenue in the beautiful Washington Park area to hear “The Word” as it is voiced by Pastor Karen. Be with us as we discover the many ways we can be with Christ in our soul search of 2018. Do you move to the left, do you move to the right, do you sit straight up on the fence? These are all questions we need to research if we are to be a “TRUE DISCIPLE” OF JESUS CHRIST.

If you are “On The Fence”, you really need to be at this gathering on Sunday at Noon.

Blessings,

Pastor Karen

“BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS”

We will gather at 1955 East Arizona Avenue in the beautiful Washington Park area of Denver, Colorado at HIGH NOON, 12:00 p.m. for a time of worship, reflection, study and hope that only Jesus can give us.

Bring friends, relatives and children for this special time. ALL ARE WELCOME. There will be a fellowship following the service.

Blessings, Pastor Karen

“Live Life in Full Bloom”

Are you living your life in “Full Bloom”, or are you doing just enough to get by. Are you trying your hardest, or are you just sitting back and letting it happen. Are you being proactive or are you being active.

There is a difference. There is a difference in how we approach everything in our lives. Come Sunday, July 29th, 2018 and hear the sermon of Pastor Karen Schneider as she tells you ways of full blooming. Join us at HIGH NOON, 12:00 p.m. at 1955 East Arizona Avenue for a late morning filled with joy, happiness, and forgiveness as we shelter together in an atmosphere of love.

Let your heart do the walking, let your soul do the searching, and let your eyes do the looking. Allow the Lord to come in your soul, no matter what is going on in your day, and allow the Lord to be your guide, your strength, and your refuge.

If you are suffering from loneliness, if you are suffering from neglect, if you are suffering from confusion……live a life in Full Bloom by letting your Christ lead the way. Sunday at HIGH NOON we will experience those good feelings we are all craving.

See you then.
Blessings, Pastor Karen

“ESCAPE COMPLETELY”

Do you ever feel like you have had enough, that the burdens of life are more than you can take? Do you feel like you never have any fun and just work all the time? Do you feel tired, depressed, with anxiety creeping in all over? Do you feel like just boarding an airplane, baggage in hand, and ticket stamped, never to return again?

In 2018, we are all feeling this way, like there is no room for living any more, that our time is spent on survival instead of living our life as we should. Learn how to “Escape Completely” as you join us on Sunday, July 1, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. at 1955 East Arizona Avenue, Denver, Colorado, for a message given by Reverend Karen W. Schneider on escaping from this life, and entering the spiritual life, the life that gives us peace, love and understanding. That life that makes us relax because we have our Lord to turn to with the same calming effect the Seas of the Caribbean can give us. As Princess Cruises has as their Logo, “Escape Completely”, we can be part of this without boarding a Cruise Ship.

Join us on Sunday in the beautiful surroundings of Washington Park in Denver, Colorado. We welcome all, we love all, and we cherish all.

Blessings, Rev. Karen

‘THE TRUTH OF JESUS LIVING IN YOU’

We all know Jesus lives in us, around us, and through us. This coming Sunday, June 24, 2018, we will hear the words of Minister Cathy Pendleton speak of Jesus resting in our souls, minds and body.

We need to remember that Jesus is waiting for us to make the next move, Jesus is waiting for us to embark on the next challenge, Jesus is waiting for us to spread the GOSPEL, Jesus is waiting for us to mend our relationships with our neighbors and loved ones, Jesus is waiting for us to rejoice in the happiness, the love, and the laughter of his well being.

Join us this coming Sunday and hear the words that will vibrate your heart, the words that will come off the page and jump into your soul and awaken it with joy. Join our “community of faith” as it prepares for the future and needs your help in that preparation. Join us for a time of commitment, peace, meditation and excitement. That excitement being the entrance of Jesus into the souls missing his existence.

We meet at “HIGH NOON”, 12:00 p.m. at 1955 East Arizona Avenue in the beautiful landscape of Washington Park in Denver, Colorado …… SEE YOU THERE!!

Blessings,

Pastor Karen Schneider

WHAT’S NEXT

There is always something going on at the Gardens. We have our upcoming “Garden Gala”, we have our wonderful services every Sunday, and we have our consistent Bible Study every week. But aside from the activities of the Gardens, there are times when one feels overwhelmed, when one is frustrated, when one can’t find his or her way out of a series of problems….and we come up with the expression, “What’s Next”, because it seems like all of this comes in a series, it is a step-by-step process, it is a timeline we just can’t seem to get around.

On the other hand, “What’s next” can be good. It can be a Wedding, it can be a new baby, it can be a new home, it can be a new friend, it can be a new relationship…….”What’s next” just seems to be around the corner.

“What’s Next” is just waiting for you. It is waiting for you to get in line with Jesus Christ and evangelize those who have not met Christ. It is waiting for you to step up to the plate when no one else will. It is waiting for you when making an idea become a reality.

The Lord is there, and for What’s Next, ask him.

Blessings, Pastor Karen
