Loving the Light
Series: Lent
Our lives consist of “being” and “doing.” And in the balance of the two, many of us tend to lean much more heavily toward “doing.” Jesus teaches Nicodemus in the gospel of John that we are called to “do truth” and to “come to the light” so that we can realize all that we do and all that we are is (about being) in God. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Loving the Light"

    The Good Wine
    Series: Lent
    As we go through life, we find that its first half is very different from its second half. The good news of the gospel encourages us to find grace in falling, failing, and dying. We find that God uses all of these to bring new life, the unveiling of heaven on earth. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "The Good Wine"

    Calling Leaving Following
    Series: (All)
    God is calling each of us to be and to do something unique and special. Our first response is to leave behind what once seemed so important to us, to truly put God first in our lives, and let everything else fall into its proper place. Lastly, we follow. And we follow in a way that does not focus on our destination, but instead pays close attention to the One who is on this journey with us. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Calling, Leaving, Following"

    Feb 16, 2020
    Three Temptations
    Series: Epiphany
    The temptations to be successful, to be right, and to be in control are real. Our temptations are usually to do something good, instead of to do what God wants for us, in order to be whole. Like Jesus, let us be led by the Spirit into places where we can be fully convinced of God’s will for our lives. And let us ask God for the courage to follow Christ’s example, fully giving of ourselves that we may have life and life more abundant. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "The Three Temptations"

    Repentance and Holy Spirit Fire
    Series: Epiphany
    Women pastors. Some churches have them, and some don't. What is behind our doing things the way we have always done them or deciding to make a change? What role does the Bible play in our decisions? The scripture lesson for this week is about baptism and transformation. Going from what we were to what we are becoming in Christ. LISTEN to Sunday Sermon "Repentance and Holy Spirit Fire."

    Coming of Age
    Series: Epiphany
    Being emotionally mature is required if we are to be spiritually mature. God wants to grow our hearts and our spirits. Let us follow Jesus’ example, by growing in wisdom, love, and purpose. LISTEN to Sunday's sermon "Coming of Age"

    Out of Egypt
    Series: Epiphany
    If we feel we are living in “Egypt,” maybe there is something there for us. Not only may God have us in a safe place, but God may also be fulfilling something in our lives. Let us be grateful for God’s voice and presence that leads us and guides us and remains always with us as we are led into and come “out of Egypt.” LISTEN to Sunday Sermon "Out of Egypt"

    Law & Spirit (Effort & Surrender)
    Series: Epiphany
    In the story of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple, we see examples of effort and surrender (Law and Spirit). We need both. Naturally, it seems, surrender is the more challenging of the two for us to successfully incorporate into our lives. Let us make sure to make an effort...and make the effort to let go (surrender). So that we, like Jesus, can "grow and become strong, filled with wisdom and the favor of God upon us." LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Law and Spirit (Effort and Surrender)"

    Heaven & Earth
    Series: (All)
    Throughout the ages, God has invited us to ponder the mysteries of who he is, of what he has created, of heaven and earth, and of our place in it all. As we are awed by the story of Christ’s birth, of God dwelling with us and in us, let us have the faith and courage to see that in him we can find our life, in heaven on earth. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Heaven and Earth"

    Many in this City
    Series: Advent
    Let us recognize, like Silas and Timothy, that there are many in this city who are God’s people. Let’s be open to listen to others so that others may listen to us. Let’s not be afraid. Let’s speak up. And let us be forever grateful that God is with us. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Many in this City"

    Faith Kidz Christmas
    Series: Advent
    Luke 2 tells us, "As the angel choir withdrew into heaven, the sheepherders talked it over. 'Let’s get over to Bethlehem as fast as we can and see for ourselves what God has revealed to us.' They left, running, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. Seeing was believing. They told everyone they met what the angels had said about this child. All who heard the sheepherders were impressed." LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon by Faith Youth, Brandon Burford: "First to Know"

    Dec 8, 2019
    That’s Unexpected
    Series: Advent
    Like Paul and Silas, let’s carry the joyful song of God with us wherever we go, let’s not forget that though life may not feel that great at times...life is still amazingly wonderful, let’s remember that adversity can bring the miracle of new life, let’s not assume what’s going on in people’s lives but remember that we can know for sure the Holy Spirit is hard at work, and let’s hold fast to the unstoppable, miraculous, life-changing Good News...because it’s worth it! LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "That's Unexpected"

    What the Heck?
    Series: Advent
    As Saul neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”  Saul asked, “Who are you, Lord?” He replied, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon with Pastor Joy Geldart "What the Heck?"

    Preventions
    Series: (All)
    We all experience challenges and obstacles in life, things preventing us from fully engaging in and enjoying abundant life. Even when it comes to the Gospel, the good news about the presence of God in our lives, we find ourselves prevented from experiencing all its blessings. Let us find encouragement in the story of Phillip and the Ethiopian eunuch, that no matter what prevents us from the experiencing the power of the Gospel...the power of the Holy Spirit, our capacity to respond, and the joy of a new life in God is far more powerful than any challenge, obstacle, or prevention we may face. LISTEN  to Sunday's Sermon: "Preventions"
  • Nov 17, 2019Stiff-Necked
    Nov 17, 2019
    Stiff-Necked
    Series: (All)
    We don’t want to be stiff-necked. In pain. Unaware. Unchanging. We want to be what God wants us to be. Healed and whole. Experiencing his abundance. Being transformed into his likeness. Let us instead be grateful and positive, living fully in the moment, here and now. And let’s be willing and courageous to try something new. Knowing that when we are strong and flexible, following the Holy Spirit, we can, like Stephen, see the glory of God at work in our lives. LISTEN to Sunday's sermon "Stiff-Necked"

ABOUT US

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We can tell you more about our church with the help of seven phrases from Scripture and Tradition which express our commitments.
 
That they may all be one. [John 17:21]
This motto reflects the spirit of unity on which it is based and points toward future efforts to heal the divisions in the body of Christ. We are a uniting church as well as a united church.
 
In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, in all things charity.
The unity that we seek requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view, nor rigid formulation of doctrine. It does require mutual understanding and agreement as to which aspects of the Christian faith and life are essential.
 
The unity of the church is not of its own making.
It is a gift of God. But expressions of that unity are as diverse as there are individuals. The common thread that runs through all is love.
 
Testimonies of faith rather than tests of faith.
Because faith can be expressed in many different ways, we have no formula that is a test of faith. Down through the centuries, however, Christians have shared their faith with one another through creeds, confessions, catechisms and other statements of faith. Historic statements are valued in our church as authentic testimonies of faith.
 
There is yet more light and truth to break forth from God’s holy word.
This affirmation by one of the founders of the Congregational tradition assumes the primacy of the Bible as a source for understanding the Good News and as a foundation for all statements of faith. It recognizes that the Bible, though written in specific historical times and places, still speaks to us in our present condition. It declares that the study of the scriptures is not limited by past interpretations, but it is pursued with the expectation of new insights and God’s help for living today.
 
The Priesthood of All Believers.
All members of the church are called to minister to others and to participate as equals in the common worship of God, each with direct access to the mercies of God through personal prayer and devotion. Recognition is given to those among us who have received special training in pastoral, priestly, educational and administrative functions, but these persons are regarded as servants—rather than as persons in authority. Their task is to guide, to instruct, to enable the ministry of all Christians rather than to do the work of ministry for us.
 
Responsible Freedom.
As individual members of the Body of Christ, we are free to believe and act in accordance with our perception of God’s will for our lives. But we are called to live in a loving, covenantal relationship with one another—gathering in communities of faith, congregations of believers, local churches.
