I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
It is written in the letter to the Colossians: Let the word of Christ dwell in You richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sings psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:16-17).
We worship together as a community of faith that we might encourage one another in faith and experience forgiveness and mercy, and that we might be fed and nourished in God’s word and with the sharing of Communion. Worship is a living experience and yet has an underlying pattern as we Gather, hear the Word, share in the Meal, and are Sent into the midst of our world to live out God’s love in daily life.
We worship on Sunday mornings, on special festivals, on some holidays, and at other times as well. We welcome you to come and share in worship and to gather with us in God’s presence.
Practically speaking, the facility is accessible on all levels and we are continuing to update facilities to make additional accessible restrooms on the main level.
In an intentional effort to lift up and use the arts, theater, music, and graphic arts to share the gospel, we invite children, youth and adults from the congregation and community to combine their gifts in productions.
Our 2015 show was “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”
The cycle of the church year moves through various “seasons” and we use a three-year series of scripture readings called “The Revised Common Lectionary.” The church year has a pattern to it and seasons that mark the movement through the year. The seasons in their order move this way:
Church Year Seasons: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost.
We have begun a new church year at the beginning of December with the season of Advent. We are nearly at the Christmas season. We are in year A of the three year revised common lectionary. The gospel readings come predominantly from Matthew.
