Join us this weekend to celebrate All Saints Day. United Methodists call all those who exemplify the Christian life “saints.” Come and learn what it means to honor the saints who have gone before us as well as the saints who sit beside us.
When we are trapped in cycles of acquiring and earning, our hands close into fists. In worship together, we’ll explore how giving is a practice that can free and transform us to be used by God.
We need all need community, but what is community? Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own.
Generosity is difficult to practice when we live in fear of not having enough. In worship this weekend, we’ll discuss why giving is an antidote to fear and helps us live with greater trust.
Giving is an act of conversion. It is not that when we give we hope to convert others, but that we hope to be converted. Converted from our false sense of security (how much grain we have) to the deep security of God.
Christianity is built on forgiveness and grace, and yet we are often seen as judgmental and hypocritical. What is the cause of this disconnect and how is it that we so easily see the speck in others’ and miss the log in our own eye?
Jesus offers good news to those who struggle with anxiety and worry. It is a message of trust that is not often heard in our culture of scarcity. If our life is in God’s hands, what do we have to worry about?
It is often assumed that what we see impacts what we think. However, Jesus offers an additional layer to consider - what if our eyes are not lamps that have their own light source but reflect what is within? Could it be that we only see what we want to see? Even if we want to see darkness?
