The new year is a natural time where we pause, take stock, and make plans to make changes. One of the foundational workings of God throughout Scripture is that God invites people to change. Actually, God gives us the insight to see the need for change and as we ask for it, the courage to actually step into newness. Beginning on January 17, we will begin a new worship series called Begin Again where we will look at some of the biblical examples of this new life that God extends to each of us. Whatever changes towards wholeness, health, or compassion you are hoping to make in 2021, know that God is behind you and your church family is with you!
Worship on Sundays
Starting January: The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer via Zoom
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor as Hitler rose to power in the 1930s and was executed in the closing days of World War II for his resistance to Hitler. During these turbulent and dangerous times Bonhoeffer did not seek to live as a member of the political opposition or to be a proponent of a policy or a cause. Instead he sought to follow Jesus Christ into the storm. As we find ourselves in turbulent times, Bonhoeffer is a guide on how to face them not as a political partisan, but as a disciple of Jesus. Ed Kross will be leading a 6 week study on the sermons of Bonhoeffer at 2 different times.

Starting February: The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus via Zoom
Knowing who Jesus is helps us understand who God is, who we are, and what our calling as disciples is. In John’s Gospel Jesus makes seven “I Am” statements where he describes himself and his mission. In Rob Fuquay’s study “The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus” we have the opportunity to grow in communion with God, in community with each other, and in clarity for our lives of discipleship. This 7 week study will be led by Barb Abu-Jaber and Bob Wilson and will go from Sunday, February 7 through Sunday, March 21 and will be from 5:30pm-7pm.
