RECENT SERIES

ANGELS AMONG US

The angels that appear in the story of Jesus' birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point, especially "#DoNotBeAfraid. As we look at the stories of these winged messengers as they appear to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds, we will contemplate what messeages we can offer today to counteract a culture of fear and bring #MoreHope, #MorePeace, #MoreLight, #MoreJoy, #MoreLove and #MoreLife to the world.

GREATER THAN

Reflecting on growing as disciples of Christ through generosity, we learn that being generous is about aligning our priorities with God’s priorities, aligning our hearts with God’s heart. We grow in that generosity as part of our individual spirituality; we also grow in generosity within our faith community.  Serving and giving together is greater than serving and giving alone.  In the coming year, we will serve and give together toward emerging ministries to which God has called us.

 

COMING HOME AGAIN

The story commonly known as the story of the “prodigal son” comes to us from Jesus as a story about “a man” and his “two sons”. The story Is as much about the elder brother as the younger, and as much about the father as the sons. The word “prodigal” means “reckless spendthrift”, in other words, to spend until you have nothing left. It is appropriate to describe the younger son, but also the actions of the father, as “prodigal”. We will learn how we can both be the younger son and the elder son, and how God is like the father in the story, spending everything God has to welcome us home! The series will culminate with a feast banquet around the communion table.

SEE THE UNSEEN

God creates, knows, loves, and sees all of us in our full humanity. But as people, we can fall into the habit of assuming everyone is the same or everyone is like us. While we share a common humanity, these assumptions can be harmful and prevent us from truly seeing other people and listening to their perspectives. By looking at Biblical stories, this series will help us learn how to listen to, respect, affirm, and act for and with others. In doing so, we can also come to know God even more fully.
