The mystery of our faith, is the mystery of becoming okay with not having all of the answers. Perhaps in a way, not being able to have all of the answers is liberating. I certainly cannot imagine myself having to memorize calculated answers for you. 

But not having the answers also calls us into more difficult situations. It calls us into engaging conversation, it calls us to have to discuss and debate, to think and to challenge ourselves and each other. We don’t get to whip out a rule book or an answer key and know exactly what is correct and what is not correct. No where is it clearly laid out. And therefore, we engage in a faith that asks questions.


God is Present

Lamenting in our suffering is a human response. Lamenting is what we all need at times. We need to be able to say how things feel. We need to be able to express our fears. We need to learn how to be friends with those who are lamenting. 

Lamenting is part of the process of enduring the suffering. Lamenting eventually gets us to the place that we can acknowledge God is indeed with us.


Social Justice

We are a church that is Learning to Love More. Loving and caring for others in our community is what Jesus has commanded us to do.  Watch all of our archived worship services here.






Confront: 2021

Confrontation involves recognizing, acknowledging, and addressing conflict. Those conflicts may be internal or external, physical or spiritual, temporal or everlasting. Confrontation often arises from and leads to feelings of discomfort, disconnection, and acrimony. Yet, when handled well and with care, confrontation opens the possibility of resolution, restoration, and repair. 

The life of Jesus Christ demonstrates embodied confrontation. Hope confronting despair, love confronting indifference and disdain, and life confronting death radiate through the incarnational story. Yet, confrontation is not limited to the gospel text, the biblical narrative simmers with confrontation. 

This series attends to the confrontation found within the lectionary texts with the focus scripture often in conversation with the other texts. The first part of the series looks at our identity in and through the lens of Christ using the Markan narrative. The second part centers on the story of Job and Job’s wife as a truly human response to adversity. Finally, the third part of the series sets our gaze forward as the narratives help us consider the future, individually and cosmically.
