July 21, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: TRUST
Carolyn Krueger was a long time, faithful member of Boston Avenue. She sang in the Chancel Choir and served on our Altar Guild. Carolyn participated in UMW, The New Covenant Class and Disciple Bible Study groups. She loved the Boston Avenue and we celebrated her life here upon her death in the summer of 2013. A few days ago we received a check for over $50,000 from her estate that will go into our General Endowment Fund. Because of her generosity, this investment will continue to generate funds for ministry through Boston Avenue that will outlive us all! Truly, she was a blessing to us then and now.
Scandals of Scripture is the title of this sermon series as we explore Biblical stories of scandal that reveal the weaknesses of our ancestors in the faith. As we empathize with their struggles we can learn important lessons for our own life in faith. Genesis 22:1-14 will tell us another story about Abraham. This one also involves his long awaited son, Isaac, that appears about to be killed, by an order from God. Delve into this ancient story of faith with me as we ask, “How Much Do You Trust God?”
Your outreach represents Boston Avenue’s outreach. You are walking and talking witnesses to our life here together. Have you told anyone about our sermon series or special revival anthems this month? Have you invited someone to come to worship with you?
Invite someone to be your guest this week and then pray that they encounter the very love of God incarnate while they are here among us! If you have time please introduce your guest to me so that I can personally welcome them. I look forward to seeing you Sunday morning!

Friday is opening night for Broadway at Boston Avenue’s The Addams Family Musical
Loving families come in all shapes and sizes...who’s to say what’s normal?
Join the cast of Broadway at Boston Avenue this Friday for opening night of The Addams Family Musical. Audience members of all ages will enjoy experiencing the journey of this familiar, lovable family through laughter, tears, and toe-tapping music.
In the kooky world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus of the musical: the Addams kids are growing up.
The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years, and Gomez and Morticia, patriarch and matriarch, played by Boston Avenue’s Kent Harris and Veronica Smith, would be happy to continue that way. Their dark, beloved daughter Wednesday, played by Becca Worthington, however, is now an eighteen-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own.
She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, played by Will Duncan, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable family — the most un-Addams sounding person! To make matters worse, Wednesday has invited the Beinekes, played by Kelly Borycki, Chuck Tegeler and Lee Egdorf, to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face what they’ve avoided for decades: change.
An intergenerational cast ranging in age from 9 to 63, including Trevor Waechter as Fester Addams, Christopher Flippo as Pugsley Addams, and Allison Hardin as Grandma, are all in on the fun, too. Rounding out the cast are the Ancestors, played by Belle Clemons, Rebecca Dennison, Sierra Eveland, Carrie Clark, Caroline Holmes, Grant Magee, Rebecca Magee, Kate Parker, and Rob Reck, who bring the show to life with music.
Showtimes are July 21, 27 and 28 at 7:00 p.m., and July 23 and 30 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10, reserved seating. To purchase, visit the table in Bishops’ Hall, call the box office at 918-699-0138, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
