Methodist Pastor on Family Dynamics

La Cañada United Methodist Church youths Deven, Ariana and Gregory Harder created personalized face masks during the church’s virtual Vacation Bible School. Running for the past six weeks, Compassion Camp discussed ways that young people can have compassion for themselves, other people and for the earth. Wearing face masks is one way that they can show compassion for others.

At 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 16, at La Cañada United Methodist Church, the Rev. Karin Ellis will preach from Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28. Using the story of Joseph being sold into slavery by his brothers, Ellis will talk about family dynamics and how they might be different, or the same, during this time of being “safer at home.”
LCUMC’s service can be watched at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday or later via the church’s webpage at lcumc.com and on its Facebook page listed under La Cañada United Methodist Church. Note that sermons dating to March can also be found under Media on LCUMC’s webpage and that prayers are posted on the Facebook page every day.
For information about LCUMC’s other virtual activities, such as Bible study, and discussion of the book “White Fragility,” phone the office at (818) 790-3605 or visit lcumc.com.

At 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 9, at La Cañada United Methodist Church, the Rev. Karin Ellis concludes her online worship series “A Compassionate Neighborhood: Spiritual Lessons From Mister Rogers” with the topic “Look for the Helpers.”
