Being the Body


Part of being a Christian is being called into community with others. It is part of how we spiritually grow and help others to do so, and part of our witness to a world as we share God’s love. As we come back physically together as a church, our summer series will look at why our call to community is foundational, how we’re called to it and how God might want to shape us in in our communities to reflect his love and glory. We will draw from the book, Called to Community, a collection of 52 writings about how we might live a shared life in Christ more fully.

What Are You Hoping For?


What are you waiting for? What are you anticipating that will ‘fix’ whatever feels broken right now? 2020 has, in many ways, been a test of patience and hope. Advent is also a season of waiting: we await the arrival of our long-hoped for Messiah. This series will reflect on three images of Jesus as our Messiah: He is our Divine Rescuer, Divine King and Divine Husband. Each of these depictions of our Lord offers us the real hope we have that doesn’t just ‘fix’ things, but can transform our lives—as well as our expectations for tomorrow.
