Posted by Karen Flynn on

A great way to get to know our new senior pastor, Bill Eaves, is through reading! Bill is an avid, eclectic, and discerning reader—and that’s about the highest praise your librarian can offer. Bill has provided us with a list of some of his favorites. There’s everything from...

Children's Ministries Friends 4/5

Posted by Joan Hartman on

A little more than a year ago, I gave some serious thought to what I was seeing and hearing from our Children’s Ministries’ “recent grads,” the 6th- and 7th-graders. Every fall, a few would hover by the children’s rooms and look longingly at the glitter glue, tubs...

A Call to True Life: Room for God

A Call to True Life: Whose Am I?

Posted by David Doppenberg on

You see in the circle to the right the word “calling,” which can also be described as identity. Perhaps “the” question of life is the question of identity—“Who am I?” I googled this question and found vastly different points of view on what creates a...

Lent: A Call to True Life

As disciples of the Lord Jesus we are called to resist the sin that separates us from the love of God and neighbor. The disciplines of Lent—repentance, fasting, prayer, reading of scripture and works of love—help us turn to and live in the harmony that God desires for all creation...
