Not Dead Yet!

Service offered by Revs. Kathleen Rolenz
& Wayne Arnason

Although it was Mark Twain in the 19th Century who in response to seeing his own obituary insisted “reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” the latter books of the New Testament specifically and the Christian message generally from the 1st Century has reflected this same insistence about Jesus’ message to us. In a world where nothing is permanent, we treat death as the exception. On this Easter Sunday when Christians celebrate resurrection, we’ll look with both respect and a little irreverence at the problems and the possibilities of life—before and after death. The Outreach Offering will be dedicated to supporting our partner organization, Greater Cleveland Congregations.

Tenebrae: A Service of Shadows
Thursday, April 2, 8:00 pm

Every year, we gather to commemorate the life and to mourn the death of Jesus of Nazareth. Tenebrae means "darkness" and we tell the story of Jesus' betrayal, trial and death by extinbuishing twelve candles, which represent the desertion of his twelve disciples. In the end, we sit in darkness, until one light is returned. All are welcome to attend.

What's Happening with Solar
at West Shore?

Special Congregational Meeting,
Friday, April 10, 7pm

West Shore has the potential to generate almost all the electricity we use through solar. Tom Smith, a member of the Buildings & Grounds Committee, has spent several months contacting building contractors and solar parking canopy contractors to obtain ideas, estimates, and designs for structures that could be built in our parking lot. The next step means a West Shore representative has to appear before the Rocky River Board of Zoning and Building Appeals to say this is what WE want for our church, our principles, and our community. This will need a special congregational meeting and vote. All eligible voting members of West Shore are encouraged to attend. This is a complicated topic and Tom looks forward to your questions. To find out more, click here or contact Tom at tsmith_1002@yahoo.com or 216-521-2434. Hope to see you at the April 10th meeting!
