Draw Near
 
Through the birth of Christ, God draws near to us by taking on flesh and experiencing what it is to be human. This season, we celebrate that God is still incarnate drawing ever closer to us and to the spaces in the world that are broken. Advent is a season where we respond to God’s nearness by drawing near to God. We practice Drawing Near by leaning into wonder, justice, truth, and one another.

Table Manners
 
In our busy lives, we don’t necessarily make a lot of time for inviting friends and neighbors over for dinner, and we certainly don’t often share our dinner table with strangers and outcasts. But that is exactly how Jesus spent much of his ministry: around a table sharing food and stories with every kind of person. The table became the heart of his ministry, a place where the hungry were fed and the broken received grace. This month we will join Jesus at the table and see what table manners we can learn from the man who broke all the rules.

Teach Us To Pray

Prayer is one of the most important practices in the life of a person of faith, yet for many of us it is a struggle. Even the disciples, Christ’s closest followers, asked him, “Lord, teach us how to pray?” During this worship series we will be exploring various ways of praying
and learning practically together how to have deep, meaningful, impactful prayer lives.

September Sermon Series:

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Jesus boiled down the whole of the gospel into just a few simple commandments: love the Lord and love your neighbor. Sounds easy, but sometimes it is more challenging than it seems. Who exactly is our neighbor? And what does loving them look like in the real world? This month we will be learning together the practical ways that God calls us to engage others, and how simple acts of love can change our lives, our church, our communities, and our world.

Where is Jesus? 

Finding the presence of God in the midst of our daily lives sometimes feels like playing “Where’s Waldo.” The Divine can be hard to spot in the crowds of our monotonous days, busy schedules and preoccupied minds. But what if Jesus is closer than we ever imagined? Join us for this worship series as we explore together how to encounter Jesus in the messy circumstances of our real lives.
