"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." We've all known them: people who breathe grace. While you and I fly off the handle and end up making a situation worse, they seem to have a knack for reducing the emotional temperature of a room. Who are they, these "Peacemakers?" Where do they draw their remarkable strength and power? In Peacemakers, Galilee's four-week worship series in January, we'll examine the way that leads through Jesus Christ to genuine peace.

Redemption: A Christmas Carol

November 21, 2016 12:57 pm Published by Comments Off on Redemption: A Christmas Carol

Redemption: A Christmas Carol is a worship series based on Charles Dickens' classic Christmas story, which begins: "Marley was dead." Like all good stories, it doesn't end there. Over the four weeks of Advent and Christmas Sunday, we will explore the world of Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Tiny Tim and the Cratchit family. Along the way we will meet the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future to learn how living with and for others is living in a world blessed by Jesus. Come witness the Christmas miracle, redemption, which turns "Bah! Humbug!" into "God bless us every one!"

Rise Above

October 24, 2016 6:02 am Published by Comments Off on Rise Above

Galilee’s latest worship series explores how the Christian virtue of generosity allows us to escape the entanglements of materialistic expectations. In a world that follows financial gravity down the path of least resistance (and most consumption), generosity is a countervailing force that embraces the eternal values taught by Jesus Christ.
