  • As a way to be companions to each other in the next four weeks, a friend and I are reading Meditations of the Heart by Howard Thurman. They are musings and thoughts on prayer, community, and life. He offers a word of hope in times of uncertainty.


  • We are a covenantal church… what does this mean? That we are not in this journey alone. We covenant to be a part of a group of congregations, and while we all do church a little differently, we agree to support one another on this journey called faith. 


  • Sometimes art can be an invitation to a new perspective or a deeper meaning. Take time this week to check out Charlie Mackesy and his gentle voice of kindness and friendship. Let us lean into our friendships and those we journey with...


  • Words from our Associate Pastor for Missions & Education, Becca Lockwood, who returned from a three-month sabbatical today and Lori Jannsen, Preschool Director.


  • The Ascension of Jesus is a strange story at first glance. Jesus is air-lifted into the heavens and we’re left with a collage of clouds and sunlight. To be clear, it is a strange story. And, when we look at this story in the context of all of Jesus’ other interactions, blessings, healings, miracles...it actually feels pretty consistent with what we've experienced of Jesus thus far.
