Worship

 

A God-directed fellowship,

in which mercy and righteousness are held in tandem,

to hold all in love and hold all accountable to God’s direction that we love one another.

A Christ-centered church,

where each member is called to see the face of God in the least among us,

and bring those on the margins to the Christ-center we share.

A Spirit-led congregation

that waits on and listens for the Holy Spirit to guide us into new paths of service

and to fill our hearts with a deeper understanding of God's word for God's world today.

A Word-oriented gathering

that pays heed to what the living Word of God is saying through the Scriptures

as Christ walks alongside us and, by the power of the Spirit, interprets God’s will to us.

A pastoral community,

which takes seriously its stewardship call to care for one another and the local community,

with the intent of building compassionate, familiar, and friendly relationships.  

An affirming assembly

of fellow pilgrims walking through the wilderness together

before we reach the glory of God’s realm.  

We confess that we are not perfect and are always learning to love better; therefore we rejoice in the faithful forgiveness and steadfast love God offers us through Jesus Christ, and we hope, in work and in rest, to live in thankful witness to God's grace.

As a matter of policy and living into love, we embrace and seek the care and liberation of all God's creation regardless of ability, age, cultural background, economic status, education, ethnicity, faith life and/or religion, gender, immigration status, language, nationality, physical appearance, race, self-expression, sexual orientation, species, status as a parent, or other such considerations.

Intergenerational Service

 4th Sunday of every month, 10 - 11am

This is our time to have everyone worship together. To help our children stay engaged during service, we have banners to wave when a special buzzword is said. There will also be a children’s sermon, and a chance for the children to share what they are learning with us. 

Relax! Grab some banners! Get an activity bag at the front of the church!

Parents – God put the wiggle in children; don't feel you have to suppress those wiggles in God's house.

  • Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to engage.

  • Quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the pastor, musicians and leaders.

  • Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses.  Children learn behavior by mimicking you.

  • If you have to leave the Sanctuary with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said,  "Let the children come to me".
