Worship

Sundays at 10:15 In Person and Streamed

The Christmas season is a time when the juxtaposition of the sacred and secular feels sometimes blatantly opposed, and sometimes quite blurred. The word “sacred” points to something dedicated as “holy” and “set apart.”

This year, we are invited to a spiritual journey of seeing all things pregnant with the Holy. What could our experience of the Advent and Christmas season be like if we lived it imagining that everything is reflecting the sacred?   (Worship Design Studio)

 

“… you know what time it is. The hour has already come for you to wake up from your sleep… the night is far gone, the day is near.”    – Romans 13: 11-14

 “Keep awake therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.”    – Matthew 24: 36-44

 

For our online community, have a candle nearby and something to light it with for the beginning of the service.

Come friends!  Join me as we begin our time of waiting!  We begin our first Advent worship in reflecting on “Sacred Time, Hope”.

Join us in person or via Zoom or FaceBook Live.
