#WeChooseWelcome

Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. Our passion is working together to try to make the world a better place. By doing tangible, concrete things that improve people’s lives, we honor God and live out what Jesus meant when he said, “Love God and love your neighbor.” If that resonates with you, we hope you’ll come visit.

8:45 a.m. Worship Service Moves to Palmer Hall

For the past 10 years the 8:45 a.m. service has steadily grown in size. During the course of the year attendance in the Courtyard periodically goes beyond the capacity of this room. The session, the governing body of the church, has made the decision to move this service into Palmer Hall September through May. This service will then return to the Courtyard during summers and occasional Sundays.

Sundays, September 16, 23, and 30 – 9:45 a.m. Education Series

Adults: Loneliness and Belonging – Loneliness is part of the human experience. What does it feel like? What circumstances lead to loneliness? The world seems particularly lonesome right now. We’ve sorted ourselves into factions based on our politics and ideology. We’ve turned away from one another and toward blame and rage. We’re lonely and untethered. What leads us away from loneliness into connection and community? In a three-week series, we will explore in preaching and teaching the burden of loneliness and the grace of belonging. In Palmer Hall.

Youth Group: Facing Anxiety – Research shows that teens today are facing higher levels of anxiety. This is a real and important conversation about when we feel anxiety, strategies to cope with anxiety, and, when it becomes overwhelming and interferes with everyday tasks, we should seek professional help. This series will explore anxiety in our lives and in the lives of people throughout time in the Bible. We will practice different techniques that help all of us cope with the symptoms of anxiety. We hope this series helps start the conversation about anxiety, community, and coping skills that support our youth in balanced and healthy living. Please reach out to Director of Mission and Education Brittany Porch with any questions or concerns.

Children PreK-5th Grade: Peace Practices – We’ll explore God’s peacemaking ways through story, crafts, yoga, nature walks, and singing.

Sunday, September 16 – 11:00 a.m. Special Music
