To know the power of Christ – sermon for 4/7/19

by

We continue to work our way through the reflective portion of Lent, looking for God’s presence in our community and welcoming family and friends alike.

In Christ there is a new creation – sermon from 3/31/19

In worship we heard lessons and offered prayers that highlight our need for reconciliation and for our response when we are made clean (even when that means we pass through judgment).

In worship, we heard stories of God’s connection with humanity and how we are reminded that God’s standard and commitment is what makes life what it is.
