Receiving Joy

11:00 a.m.

While happiness is something we can pursue, joy is often an experience we simply receive, unpursued and unearned. This week in worship we will explore joy, what it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s a gift.

Summer Awe


Albert Einstein once said “Look! Look deep into nature and you will understand everything.” During this service we’ll use the eyes of our hearts to look deep into the wonders of nature and marvel at all we can and cannot understand.

Joy as Resistance

11:15 am only

In the midst of schedules with so much to do, budgets with so many bills to pay, homes with so many chores to do, and a wider world that is so broken, joy can seem like a distraction from the “important” things. Yet, the experience of joy itself can be resistance against all that would rob our lives of their abundance. Steep yourself in joy this Sunday and join us in thanking our Family Ministry volunteers for the gifts they have given our community this church year.

Coming of Age Sunday

11:15 am only

Since the fall several youth in our congregation have probed the roots of our faith and explored their own evolving beliefs. This week in worship these youth will share their wisdom with us and we will celebrate how they have come of age through their search together for truth and meaning.
