Tethered!

by

We all have burdens at one time or another–some are more difficult than others to carry. We are not meant to carry them alone; the good news is that Jesus’ yoke is light, but his commission to us is that we carry one another’s burdens as well. Join Pastor Katharine as she brings this Sunday’s message, Tethered.

You Are Surrounded!

by

Sometimes it feels like we are surrounded by difficulties, doubts, and death. It’s easy to get discouraged and think you’ll never get out of the dilemma you find yourself in. But, God is surrounding you and whatever you are dealing with. There is an unseen realm where your battles are being fought. Don’t get discouraged by what you see with your physical eyes; through the eyes of faith you can see every obstacle surrounded by Almighty God.

Welcome to the Neighborhood: Look and Listen

by

Jesus went out of his way to show that the much-hated people of Samaria mattered to him, He went out of his way to lift up the people that had been left behind, marginalized and dehumanizes. He refused to walk by. Reflecting on the Good Samaritan story and Mr. Rogers’ handling of discrimination on his program we are challenged to do the same.

Welcome to the Neighborhood: It’s You I Like

by

Everyone is sacred because we were made in the image of God, and for that reason alone, he or she is to be valued. Mr. Rogers believed in the sacredness of all creation – including sinful humankind – because of one Man, “the true light, which enlightens everyone.”

Welcome to the Neighborhood: I Like To Take My Time

by

So often we miss the sacred space afforded us between us and another person or us and God. Fred Rogers embraced those moments using them to bless and affirm his viewers. As we look at Jesus’ life, time spent with everyone was considered sacred.

What a Friend!

by

Some friends play at friendship, but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin” This week we will not only explore what true friendship looks like with others, but more importantly with Jesus Christ.

Dare To Dance Again

by

As Easter people we are called to dance our dances of freedom for all the world to see – even and perhaps especially in times of great difficulty. Dances of hope. Dances of justice. Dances of love. During this post-resurrection season let us recapture the joy of living in the beloved community and extending that fellowship through our witness to the world as we dare to dance again.

Ash Wednesday: Shattered

by

Each of us is created as a holy vessel of embodied love. Our sense of wholeness has been shattered. We look to Lent to be a season or recovery after the toxicity of this last year. Jesus is in solidarity with our healing of body, soul and spirit, where beauty is created from that which feels broken.

Light Your Candle: The Voice of Mary

by

Mary, the young mother of Jesus, was as a woman powerless in the face of those who ruled the land. Still, in the Magnificat, Mary exults in a power that comes, not from a throne or any earthly authority, but from God. God’s powerful grace and love through Jesus is then claimed for the poor and oppressed.

Leap of Faith

by

Faith is the bridge between where I am, and the place God is taking me. Hear what skydiving, Peter’s walk on the water, and making a decision to follow Christ all have in common.
