Each Sunday 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.

"How Do We Love Our Enemies?"
with Rev. John MacIver Gage
Loving our neighbors is hard enough. But our enemies? C'mon, Jesus. Are you serious?
Matthew 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
In Faith Formation @ 10am
Track 1: Lectionary Bible Study
The Revised Common Lectionary is a guide to our use of scripture as a congregation. Sunday by Sunday, the lectionary offers us four different passage to reflect on, and in this on-going group, we'll consider them together. Meets in Room 9
Track 2: Rotating Class
This is the first of our monthly (Re)Confirmation series for adults (and anyone else).
Our confirmation program with youth this year will be structured less around abstract ideas of systematic theology—“What is the Trinity and How does it work?” or “How is Jesus’ saving work accomplished?”—and more around the life and teachings of Jesus himself; after all, no matter how exactly we describe him, there’s no denying Jesus is the value-added at the center of our Christian faith. If you want to know the heart of our faith, get to know Jesus, personally.
Can't make it to church Sunday? You can worship with us via Facebook Live @ 11am Central Time (and the livecast will be posted on the page after that). Go to our Facebook page here.
