10:30am Sunday Service | Complicating Joy
Have you ever had an experience where someone's joy just seems oppressive? Like, you are being asked to share in an overly-joyful experience when you really just aren't feeling it. Or how about moments when we desire joy but it is nowhere to be found? Let's get real with one another about some of the complications of joy.

Speaker: Rev. Lane Campbell

Due to COVID-19 we will be holding our worship services online
for the foreseeable future. We will hold on-line services
each Sunday at 10:30am (our regular worship time).
