Upcoming Worship Services

Advent and Christmas Worship Schedule
Advent is a season of waiting, but is idle waiting what God wants of us? In preparation for the coming Messiah, we wonder together— what things can’t wait? What demands our immediate attention? What requires our work and preparation? What is it that God can’t wait for? Is it our praise, reconciliation, and proclamation? Is it the end of suffering, isolation, and fear? This Advent, we invite you to join us in imagining, prioritizing, and preparing. As we wait, what can’t?

Epiphany Series 2020: Gratitude
Gifts bring forth gratitude, and we express our appreciation by passing gifts on to others. When we share gifts, we become benefactors toward the well-being of all…gratitude is not a transaction of debt and duty. Rather, gratitude is a spiritual awareness and a social structure of gift and response. –Gratitude by Diana Butler Bass As we transition from the Christmas season of gift-giving into a new year, we are invited to consider our response to gifts, our expressions of gratitude. How can we dig deeper into our spiritual awareness of the gifts in our lives? Let us experience this season of gratitude together.
