Dear friends:

To say the last few months have been hard is an understatement. To say that we can’t rise to the occasion would be untrue.

Author Austin Channing Brown recently wrote this invitation: What if instead of longing for ease, we were made for more – made to advocate, made to dig in, made to speak out, made for complexity, made for this moment?

What if we believed so deeply in our own capacity to rise to this occasion that getting to work wasn’t a tiring chore, but a life-giving opportunity to invest in something larger than ourselves?”

Austin Brown’s invitation encourages us to find hope in this time in our lives rather than fear. This Sunday, we will explore these ideas in worship – how is this time a time that God is explicitly present in, how is God working, how is God inviting us to be in this time?

We will explore this passage from Philippians, enjoy gorgeous music, celebrate the sacrament of baptism and recognize Class of 2020 college graduates.

Gather to be fed, to be reminded of love, and to witness to Christ’s promises. We are launching a Zoom worship option at 9:30 a.m. with opportunities to say hello and chat in breakout rooms during the service. You are invited to "arrive" beginning at 9:15.

For those who long to see faces, to share peace with one another, to feel connection, and to spend time checking in with those you haven’t seen in a long time, this is a great place for you.
