Our worshiping and community life is coordinated around six seasons that run through the year.
Our current theme
This season’s theme, which will take us through Lent, is THE LIVING STORY. During these weeks we will be exploring the tales Jesus gave us in the parables and seeking to hear God’s message in personal narratives of faithful being. And throughout Lent we will meditate upon the story of Jesus‘ life on earth as we prepare ourselves for the Easter drama.
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.
