Black Theologian Cole Aurthur Riley reminds us that the goal of Lent is not sacrifice for its own sake, but sacrifice so that the “scales of the cosmos are shifted back toward a balance of provision and justice. In Lent there are those of us who will position our souls toward sacrifice, and some who will rightfully receive what has been kept from them. Every role holy and necessary for the healing of all.” So despite prevalent teachings, the question of this sacred season is not, “What food are you giving up for Lent, it is what practice of solidarity with the suffering are you choosing? Or what needs do you need met this Lent? We honor the complexity of hunger and desire and we find ourselves liberated into a season not rooted in scarcity but in justice, healing and the welfare of those who have long awaited their portion.”
We are currently seeking a pastor of child, youth, and adult formation (.6 FTE) to join our pastoral team.
Persons interested in applying should contact Doug Luginbill, CDC Conference Minister
If you have a person’s name to suggest to the search committee, please contact Bethany Swope and Tom Kauffman
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.
