Advent 2022: Restoration is Near!

During Advent, we are invited into the mystery of the incarnation, God putting on flesh and dwelling among us. We watch and wait and pay attention to the ways that Christ is showing up, and we tell the story of the “new” thing God did 2,000 years ago. Advent invites us to practice living in that tension of the here and the not yet. This year’s theme, developed by Leader magazine, reminds us that God’s restorative work is ongoing. Restoration is near! Jesus has come and brought about restoration! And…we live in a world deeply in need of restoration.

Restoration has seasons of intense work and of maintenance mode. It’s active. It requires something of us. It’s transformative. And it is inspired and guided by God’s creative and persistent love. Read more here.

Small Groups

Small groups are integral to the life of our congregation. They are the best place for care and nurture of individuals, for support and accountability in our faith journeys, for some stages of communal discernment, and for some types of mission and outreach.

Inclusion

As a reconciling faith community, we seek to follow Jesus’ example by welcoming all who come our way, regardless of age, economic or social circumstances, ethnic background, gender, marital status, physical ability, race, or sexual orientation.

Privileges of the Child

We seek to keep children in the midst of our congregation, the responsibility of all, to be known by name, to be valued persons in the congregation, and active participants in worship.

Small Groups

The Arts

From four-part singing, to drumming, to visuals, to dance, the arts are highly valued and central to our worship.
