We remember Jesus' crucifixion.
In our journey through The Story thus far, we’ve seen how the people of God found hope in the midst of dark times and victory when they never thought it possible, but we’ve also witnessed them challenge God, forget their faith and turn to war and destruction. It may be fair to say that God’s people have always had a few things in common: pain, questions and joy—sometimes all at the same time. Another piece of the human condition that we all share is the hunger for more—more money, more power, bigger house…. At times, and after trying unsuccessfully to satiate our hungers, we may even wonder if it’s possible to be truly satisfied. Join us for our new sermon series, Unsatisfied, as we explore the truth about what really satisfies the human heart and soul.
Since it's inception, Christians have joined in God's kingdom work by living out their faith. Their surprising words, actions and attitudes have alerted people in our communities to the reign of God. Unfortunately, the world at large isn't surprised by Christians anymore. Perhaps rediscovering with intentional regularity, the practices of blessing, eating, listening, learning and serving will change all of that...

Today, we begin the season of Lent: a 40-day journey (not counting Sundays) to Easter. Lent is a time of repentance, preparation, self-examination and reflection as we remember the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness before the start of his public ministry.
The beginning of 2018 brings with it a number of different thoughts and emotions. Are you someone who approaches every new year eager to set goals and work to achieve them? Are you the person determined to begin 2018 with a clean slate? Are you the type sto squelch any notion of "new and different," internally justifying your approach as "same life, different date?" Whatever your approach, the first sermon series of 2018, New Year, New Beginnings, is for you. Join us for worship as we consider how the Bible speaks to new beginnings in faith and in life.
