We celebrate the Church Year

This is a way we remember the story of Jesus and his disciples throughout the year.  In this Christian tradition the cycle starts with Advent, the four weeks before Christmas.  Then there are the seasons of Christmas and Epiphany.  The next big season is Lent, the six weeks before Easter.  After Easter Sunday there is a season of Easter until the day of Pentecost and then a long Season of Ordinary Time until the next Advent.  As we enter each Season we will share here ideas about its meaning and purpose.

2.  We celebrate  in worship each week. 

Sunday 9:30 a.m.  A worship service which includes singing, special music, prayer, faith sharing and preaching.  We have Communion once a month, usually in the firs Sunday.

Wednesday 5:30 p.m. We begin our Community meal with a short scripture and prayer. Music at the meal is inspirational.  There are also usually table activities related to the scripture theme.
