Our narrative lectionary texts for this season are all related to God’s promises, promises that God makes to people during times of uncertainty. Can God’s promises be trusted? Are new beginnings coming? The prophets remind us that especially in uncertain and disorienting times, God promises to rebuild, restore, and redeem. A shoot will come from a stump, a shepherd will gather his sheep, and God’s tender mercy will bring light to those who dwell in shadows of death.

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