Post-church Pool Party!

Jul 17, 2016 | Community, Homepage

Every July, we cancel our kids ministry so that we can give all of our AMAZING kids ministry volunteers the entire month off. On these Sundays, we plan shorter services with family-friendly post-church activities … like a picnic at Lake Johnson Pool!! It was so much fun!!

Epiphany Week Three – Labels and the Lake

Epiphany Week One – Failed Utopia Blues

1/8/2023 – Failed Utopia Blues After Christmas I always feel a case of the blues. Might this be because of the way we've come to celebrate Christmas in our culture? The historic liturgical view of Christmas is very different from cultural Christmas. What can this view...

12/11/2022 – Taking Offense at Jesus Our gospel reading tells the story of John the Baptist in prison hearing about everything Jesus was doing, prompting him to ask "Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?" It seems John took offense at Jesus'...

Reign of Christ

11/20/2022 – Reign of Christ Today is a big Sunday. It's the start of the World Cup. But it's a big Sunday for another reason as well. On the church calendar this is known as reign of Christ Sunday. What can we learn from both of these exciting and important...

Beautifully Odd
