Eastertide: The challenges of building community

The Narrative Lectionary texts for the Sundays following Easter are mostly taken from Acts. These texts tell stories from the first days after Jesus’ resurrection through the establishment of the church as an entity that grew beyond the Jewish community. The Apostle Paul had a vision for a church that transcended cultural differences, but Paul’s expansive vision created a lot of conflict. Where were the boundaries? How were they to know who was in and who was out? What did following Jesus actually look like when he wasn’t physically with them anymore? We still wrestle with these questions as we seek to create a community with a wide welcome and clear identity. The majority of our speakers for this series come from outside of our congregation. May our hearts be open to the wisdom they bring as we reflect on who God is calling us to be in this 50th year of Assembly’s story.

Worship With Us

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.


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.
