This Lent

We will be designating all funds in the HUNGER JAR to be given to the ELCA World Hunger Program!  

 Beginning WEDNESDAY - March 9th 2022 -MidWeek LENTEN WORSHIP SERVICES at 6:30pm
Pastor Tony’s weekly message will include A 7 week series exploring the basic question:  WHY CHRISTIANITY?

Using Douglas John Hall’s accessible and straightforward book “Why Christianity? For those on the edges of faith,  we will confront the following questions in this 7 week series: 
1. Why Christian?
2. Why Jesus?
3. Saved from What? For What?
4. But How?
5. What's the Difference?
6. Why Church? And by the Way, What about "the Others"?
7. Is There Any Hope?
"It's that kind of doubting faith--or faithful doubt--that I want to dialogue with here. I think I understand it. It's where I live too, most of the time." --Douglas John Hall from the “Why Christianity? For those on the edges of faith
