Sunday, February 3 - Pastor Dave Young

February 3rd, 2019

Holy Disruption! When our lives and faith is disrupted by Jesus, there is always hope for a new way, a better way even.  While disruption is hard, we can and will move forward in the confidence of Jesus' grace and love.

Sunday, January 27 - Pastor Dave Young

January 27th, 2019

Following Jesus means that amidst our diversity we dare to claim community by remembering our unity in Him.  

Sunday, January 20 - Baptism of our Lord (Redux)

January 20th, 2019

We missed last week due to snow, but decided to run "Baptism of our Lord" back this week.  Pastor Dave shares that our baptism is not simply our shared identity (regardless of denomination) but what frees us to risk and dare and live alternatively in the world.

Sunday, Janaury 6 - Epiphany Sunday

January 14th, 2019

The Magi bring gifts.  They are foreigners.  Of a different religion.  Yet, they have a part to play in the Jesus event.  Epiphany is a day to remember that God's vision for our world cannot be put into a box.  It is an expansive vision where the Spirit roams freely and peculiarly.  This means that all of us have a part to play in the unfolding of the Kingdom of God. 

Sunday, December 30 - Lessons and Carols Sunday

January 14th, 2019

The Spirit of Christmas invites us to see beyond the tinsel and the presents to the radical awakening that God calls us to embrace as followers of Jesus.  

Christmas Eve, 2018 - Pastor Heidi David-Young, Pastor David Young and Friends

December 24th, 2018

You may think that the Christmas story is crazy.  And it is crazy.  You know what else is crazy?  Listen and find out!

Sunday, December 23 (Fourth Sunday in Advent) - Pastor Dave Young

December 24th, 2018

What is more of a miracle; the virgin birth or the virgin's faith?

Advent Wednesday Worship, December 19 - Doug Newell

December 20th, 2018

Doug passionately calls us to remember that Christmas is first and foremost about loving others!

Sunday, December 16 - Pastor Dave Young

December 16th, 2018

Difficult truth spoken in love!  John the Baptist calls us to repentance and to amend our ways.  Yet, his challenge is always made within the fidelity and grace of the God who restores and redeems. 

Advent Wednesday Worship, December 12 - Bruce Lothrop

December 14th, 2018

Bruce invites us to "slow down" and take in the presence of God which is all around us.  By doing so we become awake to and aware of the amazing grace that surrounds every day.
