We're excited to begin our new journey of praying through the Psalms, starting with the beautiful imagery of Psalm 1. As we meditate and reflect on this Psalm, we'll find it directs us powerfully towards our vision of Thriving in Christ. We are devoted not so much to “growing a church” (bigger attendance, bigger buildings, bigger budgets—although all those things can be wonderful!), but growing bigger people who grow the Kingdom of God—people becoming more and more like Jesus who make the world around them look more and more like Heaven.
From Anxiety to Peace...
These are difficult times throughout the world. Join us as we pray to move from anxiety to peace by the grace of God, that we may be present and prepared to shine God's light for this moment in history.
Join us in prayer for justice and reconciliation. Download tonight's prayer guide here: Prayer Service June 3rd, 2020.pdf
After weeks and months of being immersed in the chaos and disruption of the Coronavirus, our nation now finds itself reeling in the awareness of another virus, far older and more pervasive: the disease of racism and hatred, and all its accompanying injustices and hurts. This is a time full of so many emotions, so much confusion, and so much pain. Perhaps some of us feel afraid to say anything, in the fear that we do not know enough, or may be misunderstood. Perhaps many of us feel helpless, not knowing what we can possibly do to make a difference. But let us make no mistake, brothers and sisters: this is not a time for the Church to be silent or inactive. This is a time to listen, a time to pray. This is a time to lament, a time to confess. A time to repent. A time to seek justice, reconciliation, healing, and transformation. This is a time to seek the Kingdom of God, for all people and places, starting with our own hearts once again.
On Good Friday, over 65 different people took shifts to pray around the clock from 7am Friday morning to 7am Saturday morning. This was an awesome experience for our church family which we hope to do again soon!
