A Disciple’s Path – Our Walk Through Lent and Life

 

This Lent, we are going to focus on the gospels. And we’re going to explore them using the themes of discipleship we find in our membership vows. When we join the church, we commit to support this community through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. We believe that these are important dimensions of discipleship.

 


Healthy Relationships (Starting January 6)

All of us want better relationships: in our families, with our friends, at work. Often we just don’t know how to get there. But there are some simple things we can do to foster healthy relationships: by getting our anxiety under control, practicing empathy, honoring boundaries, improving communication, and building trust.

 


The Meaning of Incarnation (Dec 2 – Dec 23, 2018)

With (Oct 14-Nov 18 2018)

IT’S HARD TO KNOW HOW TO RELATE TO A BEING WHO SEEMS UNKNOWABLE, FAR AWAY AND SHROUDED IN MYSTERY: And yet, we teach that God is close to each of us. Sometimes we create our own stumbling blocks to relationship with mistaken notions of who God is and how God works. In this series, we’ll explore four common ways people approach God and describe the strengths and weaknesses of each before turning to an approach that will change the way you think about God for good.

 


Stuff I Wish Jesus Hadn’t Said

When Jesus says tough things, we want to water him down and tune him out.  But the core of Jesus’ message are a ton of hard sayings about forgiveness, loving our enemies, money,  and service.   Let’s look again at the Gospels and some of the life-changing “Stuff I Wish Jesus Hadn’t Said.”


Just One Question (April 8 – May 6, 2018)

If you could ask just one question of God, What would it be?


The Bad Habits of Jesus (March 11 – March 25, 2018)

LENT WORSHIP SERIES – THE BAD HABITS OF JESUS – based on the book by Leonard Sweet. We picture Jesus in soft light – a tame, gentle figure who never upset anyone. But if that’s true, it’s hard to explain how he ended up on a cross. This Lent, let’s explore Jesus’ revolutionary edge. Let’s give him back his power to transform us through radical love.
