Special Events

Join us as we gather with one another for moments big and small.

February 14 – April 1



In Search of Fine Pearls

Participate in a 40-day Lenten congregational devotion. During Lent, we enter a season of preparation, reflection, and repentance as we seek to realign our lives and focus toward the Lord. It is a time to give up things as well as take on life-giving practices. This 40-day devotional guide is designed to help you reflect on Christ’s suffering, sacrifice, and resurrection. Each week, you will be challenged to give something up as you search for “pearls” of virtue. Pick up your free devotional guide in the Link. Begins Ash Wednesday, February 14.

True Talks – Sacred Wiring

Social Events Room

How can we better appreciate the beautiful spectrum of how God has wired us?  The body of Christ includes persons at all points on the introversion/extroversion spectrum. However, “neither introverts nor extroverts are healthy if they stay in their extremes; people are made for relationship as well as for reflection. Self-expression and solitude work together to develop character and connection with God” (John Weirick). Let’s talk about it! With Melia Ives and John Hall. Invite your friends! All are welcome!

April 22 + 29

12:30 – 2:00 pm
