Worship - Sundays at 10 am

Like the characters in our Lenten scriptures, we are also seeking many things: clarity, connection, wonder, justice, balance. We are seeking our calling, the sacred, and how to live as a disciple.
This Lent, we invite you to engage in the spiritual practice of seeking. We encourage you to stay curious, open, and nimble. We hope you will soften your assumptions and expand your perspectives. We pray that these questions will create a safe space to explore—to be drawn more deeply into the fullness of life, into the heart of God.

Opportunities to Seek God in Lent

Life Together Groups

Modeled after the Wesleyan Class Meetings of the early Methodist movement, Life Together Group is designed to provide a place for people who are seeking to know God – or to know more of God – to grow…starting where they are. It’s a time of sharing what’s going on in our lives and reflecting on the places where we see God at work. The time commitment for Life Together Group is one hour, once a week, during the six weeks of Lent (the week of February 27 through the week of April 3). We are offering several times during the week for group meetings.  Click here to choose a time and sign up!

EverKids Wednesday Edition

All kids ages preschool-5th grade are invited to join us Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 for EverKids: Wednesday - a time to explore the stories of Lent with crafts, games, and more. Adults are invited to join the Life Together Group meeting at the same time.
