“Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. —Hebrews 10:23
What an honor to be a place where we can gather around the promises of God and ask questions of faith.
If you weren’t able to be with us on Sunday, please listen to the podcasts of both services. We had some really lovely and personal questions and our time together was so good.
If you were with us at one service, please consider listening to the podcast from the other one. The questions between the two services were very different and yet both equally engaging.
Over and over again in these last few weeks, we’ve come around and around to the theme of what exactly it means to be in community with each other. And there are many ways to answer that question, but we start with being together. Each week, we gather, we sit with each other in our comfy pews and we become the church.
We come for different reasons – to wonder, to worship, to question, to grieve, to celebrate, to pray, to support, to encourage, to praise, to find peace.
And this is where we find all of those things.
With each other, but grounded in the promises of God.
We began our time together yesterday with a reading from Hebrews 10, where we were reminded that “he who has promised is faithful.”
Our God is faithful. To us.
No matter what questions we have.
No matter what we fail to believe.
God is faithful to us.
That is the Good News we gather around.

3. Why do you come to church?
Start thinking about how you could share what happens in our church with others.
Make a plan that works for you and let’s start!
