Notes from the pastor

It's March...and springtime is coming to the sonoran desert!

In the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, King Solomon wrote: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” I can’t help but think that Solomon must have had a special power of foresight to see the lifestyle of the 55+ community at the Voyager Resort. Reading through this edition of the Compass you can certainly find the time and place for every activity under the heavens! Voyager residents are energetic and active!

Whatever you have on your calendar, I hope you’ll add attending the Voyager Community Chapel to your Sunday schedule each week. The Chapel’s “Traditional” nondenominational services are held each Sunday at 9:30 am in the Ballroom.

March is a five-Sunday month; The first two Sunday’s we will complete our “Fruit of the Spirit” study from Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Then, on

  • On Sunday the 17th we will start turning our focus toward Easter and the Passion of Jesus as he prepares to face death on the cross.
  • On Sunday the 24th we will observe “Palm Sunday.”
  • And, on Sunday the 31st we will join Christians around the world in celebrating “Easter” the resurrection of Jesus from the grave.

In addition to these services …

  • On Sunday, March 3rd, at 5:30 pm the Contemporary Chapel will meet for the final time this season.
  • On Sunday March 17th, at 5:30 pm we will be hosting a unique and special “Passover Seder Service” as we observe God’s plan for redemption through the Jewish people … right up to our own Holy Communion today.
  • Finally, on Thursday March 28, at 7:00 pm we will conduct a “Holy Thursday” Communion service.

The Chapel also features a local Charity each month. On the 10th we will have a Representative from the Tucson Community Food Bank provide an update. Then, on the 17th, the Chapel’s entire offering will be donated to the Food Bank. Please join us in supporting this worthy organization.  

Indeed, there is a time for every activity under the Heavens … See you in Chapel this Sunday!
