Our worshiping and community life is coordinated around six seasons that run through the year.
Our current theme
The theme for the season of Pentecost is The Living Church. As we read through The Acts of the Apostles we will explore what the Holy Spirit enables us to be and do as church.
We will consider what it means to be known by our deeds. We will be taught to to learn from today’s marginalized communities just as we learn from the marginalized communities of Acts. We will think about how we might respond to, and learn from, how others see us.
And throughout this exploration of what it is to be The Living Church, during all our activities as community together on Sundays and during the week we will recall the words of Acts 13:52: “And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”
Where does the seasonal theme come from?
At its regular meeting Session reflects on the texts Pastor JC has chosen to examine in worship and allows a theme for the upcoming season to emerge from its discussions. On the communal committee night that follows, worship, mission, fellowship, and learning activities in the life of the congregation are organized around that theme.
How can I get involved with the seasonal theme?
Everyone is welcome to gather for our communal committee night. Perhaps you are a longstanding committee member, perhaps you are interested in trying out a new committee, perhaps you are not sure what committees are and what they do – just turn up for the group dinner, prayer, and reflection, from 5:30 pm. and then sit with any committee to help plan the season ahead.
