New Worship Series Begins on Sunday
God is with us in the ordinary moments of life, continuously providing for us, sustaining us, recreating us. 
When life brings too many unknowns, we wish for the life we had before, for the familiar. We thrive in the ordinary. Day in and day out, God is with us in the ordinary moments of life, continuously providing for us, sustaining us, recreating us.  But often we don’t stop long enough to notice God and what He may want to show us or tell us.

This series is not a call to muster up some new and ridiculous faith from your own strength. It's a reminder to maintain confidence in the extraordinary God found in the blessings of ordinary living. "Surely the LORD is in this place--and I did not know it!” Gen. 28:16 
Lectio Divina Daily Readings
Each day you will receive an email with an audio daily reading. We will be using the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, or Holy Reading. This practice involves reading the same scripture passage three times. Hear the word of the Lord and focus on how it is speaking to you.
Stained Glass Windows
Weekly you will receive a mediation written by a member of our church reflecting on one of the four stained glass windows in our chapel. We invite you to create a mosaic of your own. This could be from broken tiles, rocks, beans, strips of paper or whatever you have on hand. As you create, reflect on how God is present in the ordinary living of your day.
How is God calling you to reimagine the ordinary moments of your life?  During this time of quarantine, when the pause button has been pushed on the ‘normal’ routine of life, when we have stopped moving long enough to sit and to notice and to listen – what has God been showing you that he wants to be different in your life moving forward? Make plans now to participate in the Re-Imagine 5-Day Challenge, July 20-25, more details to follow.
