God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
From Death to Life
John 11: 1-53
Lazarus was dead. Jesus raised him from the tomb. Death cannot be avoided. The Gospel makes it clear that the real question is how we will live our lives. Faith does not guarantee escape from death or grief. Rather, it invites us to journey the way traveled by Jesus before us. On this path, we discover the companionship of Christ’s presence—grace to help us live our lives faithfully in the face of death. Being aware of death deepens our experience and seeking of joy; It expands our gratitude for the precious gift of life. It heightens our awareness and valuing of community, for we know ourselves to be connected to one another in God.

Angels Among Us
December 3rd – December 31st
Pastor Seok-Hwan, Worship, and Education are excited to be sharing Angels Among Us as our Advent Worship Series and Study this year!
The author of the study, Dr. Marcia McFee, tells us, "As I was discerning the direction for this year, I was mindful of the ways in which messages are carelessly tossed about in the form of tweets and hashtags in this digital age. And I thought...
The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point–their favorite line being: #DoNotBeAfraid
I started wondering if we could join with the angels in offering this world messages of:
"I believe we are called to be messengers of Good News. The stories of the angel visits to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the shepherds at Jesus' birth will offer us inspiration to incorporate less fear and more goodness into our own lives and therefore, in the lives of all we touch. I think there will be some profound opportunities in this series to deal with our own propensity for fear, get some perspective, and be empowered for new life in the new year." - DR. MARCIA MCFEE
