Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval.  By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.    -Hebrews 11:1-3

In a world that clamors for us to do and be more and more, community - one rooted in values like love, faith, service, compassion and justice - offers an anchor and a place to bloom and grow.

That's what we seek to be - a place to belong, to become, to believe.  Together we seek to grow first as people who are changed by a relationship with God, finding faith in things we hope for and cannot see.  Then we seek to become disciples of Jesus Christ who share light and love in the world.  We worship together, serve together, learn together, pray together.  We also laugh together, share life and eat together (like good Methodists do).

Take a look around.  Join us for worship on Sunday morning.  Come as you are.  God receives you just as you are and so will we.

Join us for Worship at 10:00am* this Sunday

We are in the midst of a yearlong sermon and study series  based on the book, We Make the Road by Walking  by Brian D. McLaren. The subtitle is long, but descriptive: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation and Activation.

 

I love the way Brian McLaren’s work is rooted in practice – that hearkens back to our Wesleyan roots. Ours is not a faith rooted solely in doctrine – ours is a faith rooted in how we live scripturally in the here and now, how we are transformed by the very actions we engage in each and every day. 

-Pastor Laura
