The Hiding Place (New!)
Are you experiencing feelings of pandemic fatigue? Stress, loss, grief, anxiety, etc? The Lord invites us in Matthew 11:28-30, "Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you......my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light." While we can all pray at home, sometimes it is nice to go to a designated place for stillness and prayer.
Our church now provides such a place - a hospitable place for stillness, lament, prayer, and healing. The Hiding Place is located in our coat room, (think prayer closet :). It features a scripture wall, a prayer bowl for any prayer requests, low lighting, and comfortable furnishings. No booking is required. Simply ring the door bell within the hours below, and one of our staff will show you in. (Should the room be occupied when you arrive, please feel free to use our sanctuary for your reflection and prayer time.) Hours: Tues, Thurs, Fridays 2-5pm. Thurs. eve 7-9pm
For more info: Pastor Tony (email@example.com) or Shannon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We welcome your little ones – newborn to age two – to quality, loving care in our new nursery facility! You’ll find us downstairs, then turn right.

Children will join in the first portion of our worship, then will be invited to gather downstairs for classes. Guest children welcome! and can be registered at the sign in table downstairs.

Grades 2- 6 will engage in MARVELING at the work and power of the Holy Spirit, and God’s mercy and love. We’re looking forward to taking these journeys with your children!

Current Series: What is Jesus Saying to the Church?
To say that the church is going through a rough patch these days is an understatement: Constant spiritual attack on its members and leaders, history and relationship with indigenous peoples, gender identity and sexual practices, biblical illiteracy, false teachings, consumerism/idolatry, overt persecution, response to environmental concerns, complacency…and we haven’t even mentioned Covid yet (!). Christmas has reminded us again that God wants to be in relationship with us. Thus Jesus has a word for us, a message that speaks into being his church, and living in the world as his body. Amazingly, the word Jesus had for the seven churches in Revelation in the first century still speak today. May we have ears and hearts to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church in the 21st century.
