NEW Programs & Events

  • Second Sundays are returning as sunday suppers!

    Join us the first Sunday of every month from 5:00-7:00 P.M. in Fellowship Hall as we share a casual meal together, enjoy a time of connection, and participate in conversations surrounding faith. If you are looking for a more casual and free time of fellowship and worship, or the opportunity to wrestle with your faith, this is the gathering for you. Each month will feature a fun new theme. All ages are welcome! 

    Begins in October! 

  • Lectio Divina: Small Group Scripture Studies

    Mondays & Thursdays beginning in october

    Do you find yourself craving greater intimacy with God and others? Are you experiencing a time of particularly high anxiety or stress? Would you benefit from more space for quiet?

    If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions, I invite you to consider signing up for one of our Lectio Divina groups. Lectio Divina is an ancient, contemplative practice of listening through scripture. Unlike a Bible study or Christian Education class, Lectio Divina is a meditative way of reading scripture that invites us to attune both to God and to each other. Over the course of this Greatest Good campaign, we invite you to consider joining our Seminary Intern, Tiffany Ashworth, in practicing greater presence to God and one another so that we might live with greater spiritual attention and response to God’s activity in our lives and communities. 

    These groups will be offered in person and over Zoom for six consecutive weeks. 

    In-person sessions will begin on Monday, October 10 from 7:00-8:30 P.M. in the Church Lounge. 

    Zoom sessions will begin on Thursday October 13 from 10:00 A.M – 11:30 A.M. 

    Check our weekly e-blasts to receive the Zoom link as we grow closer to the dates! All are welcome to join.

  • Journey to the common good: a three part book study

    sundays in october 16, 23 & 30 | 3:00 - 5:00 P.M. | fellowship hall

    What are the challenges that we as a church face as we seek the good with and for our neighbors? Risk and vulnerability are involved as we open ourselves to the needs in our community and our world, and the God who journeyed with the people of Israel is the same God who journeys with us as disciples of Jesus in our day and age.

    This three-week class, led by Associate Pastor Erik Wiebe, will lead us through the three chapters of Brueggeman’s book as we trace the arc of God’s salvific work through history, past and present.
