United Methodist Church services to share Mother’s Day message

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – In Luke 2:41-52 we find the mother and father of Jesus frantically searching for him after they lost sight of him on the way home.

What a heart stopper for any parent. As they say, a mother's work (and worry) are never done.

God shines through in us all, in a good mother's love and in those who have loved us as their own.

In our busy lives let’s take time to pay tribute to mothers everywhere and rejoice in the Good News as it relates to us today.

For that get-up-early place to worship, join our Potter Valley United Methodist Church, 10075 Main Street, Potter Valley, at 9 a.m.

Join Clearlake Oaks UMC, 12487 The Plaza, at noon. There will be a Mother's Day potluck following the service.

For an afternoon service join with us at Clearlake UMC, 14521 Pearl Ave. at 2 p.m.

We pray that we see many members and visitors in our churches in the beautiful days of spring.

Dawn-Karen Roberts is pastor of the United Methodist Churches in Clearlake, Clearlake Oaks and Potter Valley.
