To be sanctified is to become closer to that which is Holy - to move toward Union with the source of our being. Christianity calls that source God. It has to do with making ourselves available to Grace. Wanna hear more? Come hang out with us this Sunday morning, 10 a.m.


Bring a dish to share, your own place setting and a container for left overs! See you at 5🤗

Why do you go to church?

If you're a church goer, why do YOU go to church? Gallup published results of a survey that asked respondents why they go to church (or some other place of worship), and these results may surprise you--> http://ow.ly/EgmV30aZPTx

[04/11/17]   Holy Week and Easter Services – Come Worship With Us!

April 13, Maundy Thursday, 5:30 – Potluck Dinner and Tenebrae (Latin for shadows or darkness) Service, in the vestry. This can be a powerful and dramatic service and we hope you will join us.

April 14, Good Friday – We will have two reflection periods: 1pm until 2pm and then 6 until 7 on the Stations of the Cross. Here you will enter the sanctuary and walk around to different stations of the cross. You will have a chance to reflect on what each one means to you and where you locate the same theme here in our community.

April 15, Holy Saturday, Pastor Maxwell encourages us to take a media break. Let us be more still, quiet and present to our life. No cell, no email, no Facebook, no nothing! Nothing but being fully present to life unplugged (that way, we can hear God).

April 16th, Easter Sunday, 6:30am, join us at the public boat launch site by Helen's. We will have a brief service as Easter morning rises (bundle up). Those who wish may then gather in the vestry for a potluck breakfast. Then at 10am, we will hold our full and joyful Easter worship service.
