Pastor Sean Palmer invites us to continue embodying the narrative of the Resurrection. Though there remains much that cannot be undone, there is a great deal that can be redone as we seek healing, with God’s leading, in our lives and relationships.
Pastor Chris Seay leads us from beside the Sea of Galilee to teach of a loving encounter the disciples experience with Jesus following the Resurrection; and then here at home to consider the Easter invitation that liberates us from shame and judgement, urging us toward lives shaped fully by God’s love. We’re also joined by our good friend, Propaganda, who shares his gift as we celebrate. Ecclesia, we love you. He is risen!
Pastor Chris Seay begins our Holy Week journey with an invitation to consider how Jesus defied and upended expectation at every turn. Whether through imagery of donkeys and fig trees, or through surprising encounters in the Temple and the home of a leper, Jesus challenges every earthly assumption of power; a new kind of King for a new kind of Kingdom. Join us throughout Holy Week as we continue along the path to our Easter celebration.
In recent weeks, we have been made aware of opportunities to partner with efforts to address vital needs surrounding the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. Pastors Chris and Sean outline the beginning of our community approach, and the ways we are and will be called to engage during the season to come.
Join us as we continue engaging in rhythms of worship, prayer, and contemplation throughout this journey of Lent. As we begin to see Easter on the horizon, we consider the stillness of the desert, and are reminded that God’s love and provision is never dependent on our striving and activity. We are loved, you are loved, just as you are.
Pastor Chris Seay teaches from the Gospel of Luke; considering Jesus’ call for us to rid our lives of greed and anxiety and to be ready to respond at all times. He also shares heartbreaking stories from the ground along the Venezuelan border, and the opportunity that we have to join in areas of extreme need during this ongoing crisis. Gather with us over the coming weeks to hear more about how you can take part.
Ericka Graham leads us deeper into the desert of this Lenten season, considering the temptations and demons we all face throughout our journey. Just as the Tempter left Jesus for another opportune time, we will surely be met by temptation time and again, and must rely on the strength that Jesus has given us to stand firm in the past.
As we consider life in the desert, the invitation to continue in a season of scarcity and contemplation, join us in this opportunity to pray and reflect together as a community, seeking God’s guidance through this forty day journey of Lent. In the solitude, may we rest in the faith that we are never alone.
Pastor Sean Palmer invites us to continue our Lenten journey through the desert; sharing the story of Hagar and asking us to consider that, wherever we might find ourselves in the wilderness, God sees and is with us at every step.
Pastor Chris Seay invites us to participate in the kind of disruption that can lead us toward healthy change in this Lenten season. In preparation for Easter, we remember the words of the Prophet Isaiah, who reminds us that God is preparing something new. A way through the desert. How is God prompting you to examine and alter your rhythms through these sacred weeks?
