Eastertide and Pentecost
During this Eastertide we will explore what it means to live as Easter People, followers of the Risen Christ. How does the resurrection change our daily lives? How does it shape how we do church? We will use the values adopted by our congregation as a guide for our worship.
April 23 | Grace & Acceptance: None of us are perfect, all of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s will. God extends grace to us all, therefore we strive to be a nurturing community of faith in which all persons are welcome.
April 30 | Transparency: Because of what Christ has done for us, we see no need to pretend to be anything other than who we are. We seek to speak the truth with love and avoid thinking too highly of ourselves.
May 7 | Ministry: We exist not only to care for each other but to minister to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of people in our community and around the world. Every member of our faith family is called and equipped to do ministry.
May 14 | Loving Care: We walk together in love as brothers and sisters in Christ; exercising Christian care and concern for each other; sharing each other's joys, and bearing each other's burdens and sorrows.
May 21 | Generosity: All that we have comes from God. We respond to needs by freely sharing from our finances, time and energy in response to God’s generosity with us.
May 28 | Courageous Faith: While we seek to be good stewards of all that God has entrusted to us, we realize that following Christ is not a path for the faint hearted. We try to respond in faith when we feel led by God to do something beyond our comfort zones.
