Living Into Resurrection

We have been intentional this Lent in our exploration of what it means to be “filled to the brim” and to lean into the abundant and expansive life to which God calls us.  There is no day that “overflows” with God’s love and grace more than Easter.

Good Friday: Were You There?

Good Friday marks the day when hate and fear did their worst…the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.  On this day of grief and sorrow, we will gather with one another, in God’s care, to remember Jesus’ death on a cross.

Maundy Thursday

We join together to explore the meaning of the last supper, and to celebrate Holy Communion. Online participants are invited to prepare bread and grape juice (or wine as appropriate for your home).

Upon This Rock

Our talented and dedicated choir leads us through the joys and sorrows of this important day through the eyes of the very human Apostle Peter in a a beautiful musical presentation, “Upon This Rock.”

Brazen

Mary anointed Jesus’s feet with expensive perfume. What bold, brazen acts of faith, beauty and love might we be called to as we approach Holy Week this year?

Lost and Found

Bailey Brawner leads us through a reflection on the Parable of the Prodigal Son as we work to be open to God’s perspective and really allow ourselves to be known by God.

Worthy

Adam will be leads us through a reflection on the Parable of the Fig Tree as we contemplate God’s care and nurture in this holy season.

Gathered In

Our scripture passage for this second Sunday in Lent has us contemplating the nature of God.  Jesus describes himself in a somewhat surprising way…like a mother hen who wants to gather in all of her baby chicks.

The Power of Empty

Today we introduce our Lenten theme, “Full to the Brim.”  We will contemplate what we need to “do” or “undo” in order to lean into the abundant life God offers.

Chosen

This Sunday will mark the end of the season of Epiphany, a season when the identity and mission of Jesus are revealed in small and large ways.  Our text for this week is Luke’s account of the Transfiguration, arguably the grandest of all the epiphany accounts.
