Midweek Outdoor Worship

This Wednesday, July 21, at 7:30 pm, Pastor Eric and Elina will be leading the first of four mid-week outdoor worship times. This will be an opportunity to gather for in-person worship under the beauty of our trees. We will follow a very informal liturgy which Elina has put together. Think of it as church picnic without the picnic! 

Bring a mask and a lawn chair (if you have one). Chairs will be provided for those who don’t have one. 

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Compassion is one of qualities we most value in human beings. It’s also one of the qualities we most associate with Jesus. But do we ever stop to think about what the compassion of Jesus really means or what it looks like? Join us for worship as we reflect on that question and hear some of the most cherished verses in scripture.

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

The bulletin for the service can be downloaded here.

Campfire Night

Missed booking a campsite? Summer camp cancelled? Or just craving social contact with real live human beings? Join us Saturday evening, July 17 for a (symbolic but realistic looking) campfire out on our lawn at 7:30 pm. Bring a lawn chair if you can and a mask and we’ll hang out. Unfortunately s’mores are not an option. But bring a snack if you’d like and let’s chill.

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

We all know how politicians take a bad rap for changing their minds and flip-flopping on the issues of the day. But when it comes to discipleship, can changing our minds sometimes be the most faithful thing we can do? We explore that question in worship today in light of one of the most disturbing stories in all of scripture.

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

What is faith? Join us this morning as a chronically-ill woman and an anguished father teach us, and the church, a lesson or two. Maybe, even after all we’ve learned, there’s still more to it than we thought. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Feather in the Sky

As I was enjoying breakfast on my deck this morning I looked up and saw this lovely cloud formation overhead. It was only there for a moment and within 5 minutes had drifted away. To me it looked like a feather and my mind instantly went to recollecting that today is National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada. Maybe it was the Creator’s way of reminding me that the Creator will never forget all the children of this earth. And neither should I.

National Indigenous Day – Service of Lament

What does reconciliation look like in the context of Christian worship? This service gives us a glimpse. Perhaps it looks like bringing tobacco and sage, sweetgrass and cedar, along with bread and wine into our celebration to remind us of the ways God works through the diversity of creation and human culture to give us life in abundance. And in the process to draw us closer together as a human family in mutual respect, care, and love.
