The Fifth Sunday After Epiphany
February 4, 2018

"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

We will begin by filling one board first and begin on the second board when the first one is filled. If we sell all the squares on both boards, you have a chance to win up to $125 after each quarter and up to $500 at the end of the game on each board - 2 chances to win after each quarter! But most importantly, our outreach will receive $3,250!
What if each family commits to selling at least 10 squares? Contact your family and friends. It is easy to do and fun to watch who wins! Reserve your squares today!

Resurrection Welcomes Barbara Brown Taylor
January 28, 2018
Resurrection's "mother" helped us remember the beginning.

People have been gathering in public spaces for ages, talking about life, philosophy, faith, doubt, and deep questions of meaning. Recently, many people are re-discovering the pub and tavern as a safe space to explore and express questions, learn from others, and engage with other traditions and perspective. Throughout time, profound insights have their origins paired with a pint. The pub is a space of freedom and a place to reflect on the technical layers of complexity in the drinks we imbibe and the philosophy and theology in which we share. 

Join us the second Tuesday of the month and bring your questions, curiosity, and readiness to engage and wrestle as we pursue the Divine in the seemingly least likely of places. 

Please contact the church office to reserve your spot or sign up here.
Limited Seating Available!
