Reflections on Faith and Community

Dear friends,

On this page, you will find weekly reflections on life and faith. My hope is that, in some way, they will prove helpful to you in your daily living. You can also find them on the church's YouTube Channel in the "Weekly Word" playlist. May God bless you on the spiritual journey.

Observe a Holy Lent

O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker. For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. (Psalm 95:6-7)

Before I say anything else, don’t forget that this Sunday is a single service Sunday at 10:30am. We have planned a completely unique service specifically put together to help us start the Lenten journey to the cross. Spoiler alert: we might be breaking something. You’ll need to join us and find out. Another thing to remember is both the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner tonight at 5:30pm and the Ash Wednesday Service tomorrow night at 6:30pm.

I am also excited about beginning a new sermon series this Sunday titled, “Jesus Sayings that Could Change the World.” We are going to look at some of the more challenging things Jesus said (and there are a number of them) and talk about how different our lives could look if we were to actually do them. What if we actually put to practice what Jesus tells us? How might the world be different? Is it even possible? We’ll find out together.

It is my hope that we find ourselves both challenged to greater things as well as comforted where we fall short. It’s going to be a powerful Lent this year. See you at church!
