Questions of Faith

For the next two weeks, pastors and leaders will respond to questions submitted by congregation members. Pastor Bob and Pastor Christopher take the lead today. What questions do you have about faith and/or your church?

Laboring in Love

Pastor Bob brings a message encouraging us to examine how our community sees us. Are we a presence of the body of Christ?

Projecting Grace

This Sunday we begin a new (short) series called Generation to Generation. During this first week, we recall our history of serving others in varying ways and how this lays the foundation for future service to our community and beyond.

Move …In Love

This Sunday, Pastor Bob wrestles with a difficult text that has brought comfort to some and been used as a tool for oppression by others. How might we understand this text today?

Give Thanks

This Sunday, Pastor Bob returns to bring a message on gratitude in the face of challenge.

Feed the World

This Sunday we conclude our Healing Hands series. Sunday’s message includes the familiar story of Jesus feeding a large crowd as we explore with our youth the ways that our faith meets both our practical needs as well as our spiritual needs.

Send Forth

This Sunday we continue our Healing Hands series! We continue to explore Jesus’ healing work, and this week explore how an experience of healing prepares us to go into the world as disciples.

Bring Life

Today’s message compares two stories of healing, one embedded within the other in the gospel of Mark.

How

This Sunday we conclude our conversations about community. Pastor Bob returns as we explore how we can bring our own uniqueness into creating community, and the importance of doing so!

Why

This Sunday we continue our conversations about community. Samuel has grown old and the people have become discontented with his leadership. But is what they’re asking what they really want or need?
