God of the Unexpected - April 1, 2018

Luke 24:1-12

Easter gives us an upending of the expected, the logical, and the necessary. Everything says that death is final. There is no coming back. And, logically, that makes sense to us. No heart beat, no oxygen equals no life. It's predictable. It's reliable. It's a sure thing. It's why we hate to stop treatment. It's why we can't bear to take someone off life support—because when life stops, it ends. And

Power of Praise - March 18, 2018

Psalm 145:1-21

Over the last month or so, we've been making our way through different types of prayers. Sometimes clearing the clutter of cultural platitudes and sometimes untangling scriptural intricacies. We have hopefully created some space for us to pray more freely and more willingly, knowing that God is

Power of Praise - March 11, 2018

Romans 8:26-27

There are a lot of times in our lives when we just can't find the words to pray. Most often, I've found it's when....we're scared to death. When we're scared to death as we wait for a medical diagnosis. Scared to death after a car accident. Scared to death when the doctor can't hear the baby's heartbeat. Scared to death when hospice tells us it's time to say our final goodbye. Scared to death when we can't pay the bills and more still keep coming. Scared to death when

Forgiveness - March 4, 2018

2 Corinthians 2:5-8

Who are those who have wronged you, within the church and outside of the church? Who is it that has wronged someone you loved? Have you forgiven them? and in forgiving them, have you created space for them to be a part of the community? (or family? or work friends?) or have you held them at arm's length maintaining their punishment of isolation without really thinking how long it should last? Have you thought about what might be

Thy Will be Done - February 25, 2018

Luke 22:39-44

What would we pray for if we knew we would get what we wanted? (To win the lottery, for a new house, a new job, a new body, to lose the weight, to take the trip, for early retirement, to win the award, to get the grant, to overcome the illness, to be free of the debt)? What if we prayed those prayers and said, "If it's thy will"? Do we think God will answer with "Yes, that's my will."? What if we were to simply place the person, situation, or place into God's hands and pray: "Thy will be done"? Do we believe something would happen? Do we trust God to do something good? Is there

  • Piety Sunday! September 23rd

    Pie-ty Sunday will be Sunday, September 23rd. Over the last few years we have enjoyed celebrating the culinary and baking talents of our church for both sweet and savory pies. We sell pie by the slice and a few whole pies you can take home. We are hoping to add homemade ice cream to the menu. The money we raise this year will go to support our missioners and work in Puerto Rico.
