Waiting and Wondering Together
During the season of Advent we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus Christ. Preparation requires a lot of waiting and wondering and watching--three things that are so much more fun to do in community. Every week our community gathers in worship to do this. Join us!
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
Sundays Starting at 10:30am
On Sunday mornings we gather together. We gather as people of all ages and stages of faith. We gather to hear the Good News proclaimed--the news that Jesus Christ loves us and cares for us. Hearing that news, we celebrate. Our celebration takes the form of everything from ribbon sticks to traditional hymns, from a bass guitar to hand bells. This news and this celebration prepare us to be sent out into the world to share the love and care of Jesus Christ.
The youngest members among us are always welcome in this worship service. There are welcome bags and a "pray-ground" to help facilitate their worship experience. We also provide certified care through kindergarten age.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WORSHIP
Starting at 6:30pm
Everything is worship: every breath we take and every task we check off our to-do list. Wednesday Night Worship is a reminder of this.
During the month of January we will meet on the second, third and fifth Wednesday of the month for this thirty minute contemplative service.
Learning & Living & Serving
WISDOM & WONDER
Join us Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 for our unique model of faith formation. We have divided the year into six to eight week periods, alternating between peer (adults and a multi-age class for children/young people) and inter-generational gatherings, during which, all ages gather at tables around light refreshments to sing, read scripture and share conversation about ways they see the Holy Spirit at work in their lives. In this setting, all learn to speak the language of faith using the Bible as a textbook and shared stories as curriculum. The role of parents in the faith formation process is supported and celebrated. Families learn together. We invite you to come and see how the wisdom of the elder and the wonder of the child nurture the roots of faith formation, encouraging the spiritual growth of the whole community. If you have questions or want more information about the schedule for the year, contact Cathy Peterson, Minister of Spiritual Development at email@example.com.
GROWTH GROUP MINISTRY
A variety of small groups meet on a regular basis. These include:
Lectionary Text Studies
Breakfast & Bible
Participants share and care, pray and worship, study the Bible with the intention of practical life application, and engage in service to others. For more information, contact Cathy Peterson, Minister of Spiritual Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we seek to share the love, we are committed to serving our wider community. We do this by opening our building up to the community, by supporting community based projects, and by identifying and meeting needs within the community--both individually and collectively.
