our lives are great. There is much to celebrate and in which to rejoice.
Sometimes life is just life – mundane. We get up, go to work, come home and
repeat the next day. Sometimes life brings tragedy and heartache. Joy can be
difficult to find in these times. What if we took a closer look at our lives
and considered moments where joy is evident – micro moments of joy. Is it
possible that our lives are filled with these moments – moments we have been
too hurried to acknowledge? Beginning
August 4th, we will hear from people in our community as they share
their moments of Joy. We hope you will join us for this worship series.
There is Joy…

Easter Services at 8:30am and 11:00am

Dream God’s Dream During Epiphany we will explore ways we can participate in making God’s dream come true. January 20 at the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services the topic is Just Peace is Possible. The readings are Jeremiah, and quotes from Harriet Tubman, The Peace Pilgrim, and Nelson Mandala.
We gather in the darkness for a traditional candlelight service of readings and carols. Communion will be shared and the Chancel Choir will sing as we prepare for the coming of the light into the world on Christmas day.
All are welcome at this festive service, complete with a walk-on Nativity Pageant. Any child wanting to participate should meet at 3:30 pm in room 21 to pick out a costume (shepherds, angels, animals). Adults will oversee the children. The children will recreate the familiar Nativity scene.
This special service is a time when we can, with others, acknowledge the “blue” feelings we have at Christmas time, express grief for the present and past, and hope for the future.
