Coming Up

Our pastor writes a weekly email to the congregation, sharing news and information about worship on Sunday, including links to read and study the Scripture in advance, as well as devotional thoughts and reflections to help prepare us for worship.  You can sign up to receive the emails in your inbox on Fridays.

Current and Upcoming Worship Series

One of the most sought-after classes at Yale University is a class called “Life Worth Living.”  Taught by three theologians, Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun and Ryan McAnnally-Linz, the course aims to get at the central, fundamental question of our lives: “What matters most?  What is a good life?  What is the shape of a flourishing life?  What kind of life is worthy of our humanity?  What is true life? What is right and true and good?”

Based on their best-selling book, our January worship series will take up the deeper questions at the heart of life.  Looking to Scripture and the lives of those who have gone before us, we’ll aim not so much as to answer the questions as help us ask deeper, better questions of ourselves – that we might come closer than ever before to what Jesus calls “the life that really is life.”

January 7 --  What’s Worth Wanting?

January 14 – Who Do We Answer To?

January 21 – How Does A Good Life Feel?

January 28 – What Should We Hope For?

February 4 – How Should We Live?

How often do we hear or see the phrase “Jesus is the answer.”  While that might be the case, before he is the answer, Jesus is the question.  Reading the Gospels, we find that Jesus asks over 300 questions.  He answers only 8 of the 180+ he is asked.  Join us this Lenten season as we explore the questions Jesus asks to move beyond a faith of quick fixes and easy answers and into a deeper, more profound relationship with Christ.
