Most Sundays we gather for our "Quiet Start" worship at 9am, with communion served by intinction ("dipping") and "Full House" worship at 11am, with choir, children's circle, and communion served in trays. There is "Worship & Wonder" time for all children and child care for the very youngest during both services.
NEXT SUNDAY, 8/26
WORSHIP @ 9am & 11am
Guest Preacher: Josh Mata
Josh is a member of our congregation and a graduate of our youth group. He will share with us a sermon he preached recently at an event celebrating recipients of scholarships (like himself) from the Higher Education & Leadership Ministries of our Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denominational family.
Romans 12:1-3 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
Faith Formation @ 10am
"Called to Community"
Sundays @ 10am, Rm 10
In the midst of these radical shifts in our society and within Christianity itself, it is clearly time to revisit the question, "What is the role of the Church?" What is the Church’s role in the lives of individuals and families who no longer turn to it as the center of their social and family structure? ...in a world that increasingly sees it as irrelevant or even antithetical to human progress? ...in the lives of the people who continue to return to it as a source of strength, inspiration, solace, and connection with God? …in the lives of the people who have never walked through one of our doors an those who have sworn they never will again?"
