Parables: Jesus, Master Storyteller

October 2, 2020 10:08 am Published by Comments Off on Parables: Jesus, Master Storyteller

Jesus’s parables are masterpieces of world literature that are far more complex and meaningful than we commonly think. When we read these stories, such as four found in Matthew's gospel which will form the basis of our worship series, we are illuminated by universal truths that have a message for us where we are today. Join us as we find truth in the tales Jesus told:

Believe and Let Believe

September 3, 2020 10:24 am Published by Comments Off on Believe and Let Believe

The message of John Wesley, who fired up an exhausted English church to meet the needs of real people, has applications today. Our tradition is a practical spirituality, drawing from a broad range of Christian traditions and open-minded enough to allow others to hold their own views and opinions in non-essential matters. Join us in September for a journey through faith that is both personal and deeply communal:
