  • Holy Week & Easter

    Our Holy Week and Easter Worship Opportunities

    Palm Sunday marks the end of our Lenten journey, and the beginning of Holy Week.

    Join us at 9am, Sunday, as we gather together for Palm Sunday worship, and throughout the week for this virtual vigil as we prepare for the Resurrection.

    To ensure the health and well-being of all of our parishioners, family, friends, and community, we'll be gathering virtually together for Worship and a time of fellowship.

  • Invitation to Renewal

    A beautiful red cardinal landed under a nearby shrub as I was hustling the kids out the door to school one morning this winter. It only registered with me a few hours later that I‘d seen this wonderful bird, red coat stark against the white snow and brown branches, a sign of life and spring around the corner. 

    That I noticed and remembered this special moment at all may be proof that God works miracles! After all, it can be so easy to go on autopilot and travel through life distracted and without noticing the blessings of the present moment.

    And the present moment is full of potential gifts. 

    The season of Lent marks the time in the Church year intended to help us especially focus on renewal and restoration, spiritual growth and deepening of faith. During this season we are invited to turn away from things that distance us from God, and allow God to open our eyes and hearts and lives to see God’s gracious love in Christ poured out in forgiveness - for us. Lent is a present-tense opportunity to ponder and pray on how the resurrection of our Savior Jesus gives us new life and new birth and new eyes and ears to see the world around us.

  • Letting It All Go

    It’s time to let it all go.
    It’s time to let everything go.

    It’s time to let go of our worries and our fears and our guilt. It’s time to let go of selfishness and greed. It’s time to let go of anger and impatience, but it’s also time to let go of our need to be right and judging others who think differently than us. It’s time to let go of trying to get things perfect and it’s time to let go of blaming ourselves, and others, for not being perfect. It’s time to let go of our families and friends, our church community and all the communities of which we are a part.

  • Silence

    Silence
    And nothing more
    Silence
    And the end has come
    Silence

    The end of Jesus’ earthly journey has come. The time of God - walking fully human on earth - has ended.
