Thank you for walking with us during this season of Lent, as we turn  our heads and hearts towards deeper relationships with God and with one another. 

On Sundays and Wednesdays, you'll experience how  God's LOVE is greater...  greater than sin, greater than fear, and greater than death. 

This week, Jesus predicts his death and rebukes a disciple who feels ashamed, and we will hear how God's LOVE is greater than shame

Gather in God's love with us during this Lenten season,  and c heck out what else is happening this week...

Lent 2018 - God's Love is Greater...

In addition to weekend worship, each Wednesday at 6pm, we welcome you and the whole community to a light supper, followed by a time of worship and experiential learning through activities, discussions, videos, and making kits for people in need.

Faithful Conversations has begun! This space has been created to share your stories, hear from others, and listen for God. Connect with people on: 
      • Saturdays at 3:45pm in the Sanctuary
      • Sundays at 9:45am in the Sanctuary
      • Wednesdays at 1:15pm in the Church House
      • Wednesdays at 7:30pm in Fellowship Hall 
We will continue to meet throughout the season of Lent, and into Easter as well. Contact Pastor Joe if you have any questions. 

Join us as we take a pilgrimage to the cross with Jesus this Lenten season, 
to reach a love that is greater than anything we've ever known.

What happened to my offering envelopes?

For those of you who use offering envelopes, we are currently in the process of switching offering envelope companies.  The old company did not send out the Feb/March envelopes and the new company will start in April.  If you have extra envelopes at home, use them.  It doesn't matter that the date is not current.  If you need envelopes, there will be a stack in the Gathering Space and on the table and cupboard in Fellowship Hall. 

Thank you for your patience and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.  The church will save approximately 40% going with the new company.
