Living Generously in God's Amazing Grace!
Welcoming Everyone ~ Growing in Faith ~Reaching out to Serve
Lent is a 40-day journey that begins Ash Wednesday and concludes Easter morning.
Our theme for Lent this year is "Unfinished" with connection to the story of Jonah. The church by its very nature, and we as people of faith, live our whole lives in the space between no longer and not yet. Cross-marked and Spirit-sealed, we dwell in the space between Jesus' life, death, and resurrection and the final fulfillment of God's hope-filled promises. In this space between, we dwell in the unfinished as unfinished people. We are NOT left alone to navigate this unfinished life by ourselves. God is here - PRESENT-TENSE, each and every day - calling to us, accompanying us, renewing and recreating us ... over and over again.
Each week, we will move through the story of Jonah to learn more about ourselves, our God, and how we can have the courage to live out our faith in our daily lives in the midst of our doubts, and fears. We hope to see you on the journey!
We gather for Sunday morning worship. We also gather for food, fellowship & worship on Wednesday evenings for the season of Lent. More info below.
Here are a few of the opportunities and resources we’re providing to help you grow in your faith:
* Our reflective Lent devotions on our theme. Available in our entry OR download here
* A hands-on devotion called "Micropractices" has interactive ideas for growing in faith this season.
* Men gather for Bible study every Thursday at 6:00 am on Thursday at the IHOP on Tudor and Denali. (Yes… its early! AND this is a wonderful group of men to gather with and get to know…)
* At noon on Fridays, we’ll share in Lectio Divina, a slow reading and reflecting on scripture. No experience necessary! It’s not a class so you can come for any one or all. Come and check it out and see if this is a practice that may work for you.
