Faces of Our Faith: Adam & Eve

Today we begin at the beginning…with Adam and Eve, focusing on the second creation story (yes, there are two of them!). This story looks less at the creation of the cosmos and more at God’s intention for human community.

Neighborly

Neighbors…they can be a joy and/or a struggle! This Sunday we are spending time with one of Jesus’ most well known parables, the parable of the Good Samaritan.

First Things First

Today’s passage gives us the opportunity to reflect on what it means for us to “follow Jesus,” and how that takes shape in unique ways in each of our lives.

Mobbed

Our Gospel reading is the account of “Legion,” a man occupied by many demons.  We explore this fascinating text, digging in a little deeper to find ways that this passage intersects with our lives..

Phun with Physics Philosophy and Phaith

Come and enjoy the “Phun” as Pat Walker journeys with us through the various mysteries in Physics, Philosophy and “Phaith.” With a pinch of humor, a shake of meaning, and a cup of faith, Pat walks with us as someone trying to understand and be thankful for it all. 

Too Hot to Handle

Pentecost is the fiftieth and last day of the Easter Season, the day the church received the gift of the Holy Spirit. It’s considered the “birthday of the church” as the gathered assembly received the Holy Spirit. How does the spirit break out of our expectations and become “too hot to handle,” even today?

Be Thou My Vision

Join us on Sunday as we explore these passages that remind us of the divine vision that guides, encourages and inspires us.

In and Out of God’s Way

Peter’s world was turned upside down when he realized the Holy Spirit was pushing and expanding the boundaries of their faith community in order to include those who had previously been adversaries.

Get Up

This week we spend time with the only woman in the Bible who is named as a disciple…Tabitha.  (Also known as Dorcas.)  (Which can be translated gazelle!)  Tabitha was well known in the community for her charitable spirit and good works supporting widows and the poor.
