In our broken world it is so easy to listen to the mocking questions of evil and of the evil one. "Where is God? Why does a loving God allow this mess?” Join us at our Good Friday service, April 19th at 3:00pm, as the Sanctuary Choir presents through music and oration an exploration of this question: "Could there be a day without death?"

“Setting Self Aside”
Sometimes we confuse humility with low self-esteem or false modesty. But neither of these frees us from struggles within ourselves and with other people. Maundy Thursday we will be looking at Jesus, The Greatest Picture of True Humility. “Maundy” means “commandment”. Come to our Maundy Thursday worship experience and see in Jesus the true humility that can help us fulfill the new commandment Jesus gave us just before He died. Just come, Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m. (sanctuary) and bring someone with you.
Every so often our Traditional and Contemporary Gatherings join together for a special time of worship. Palm Sunday is one of those times! Join us in the Sanctuary to start Holy Week, the days leading up to Easter Sunday, for a combined gathering of worship! A very special part of this gathering includes sharing with people who are being baptized!
In the midst of the well known events of Palm Sunday and Holy Week is a rather peculiar (to say the least) episode where Jesus seems to lose His temper and curse a poor little fig tree that was just minding its own business and not bothering anybody. In fact, though, Jesus was making a point to His disciples with life and death implications. On Palm Sunday, Pastor Richard will explore "THE CURIOUS CASE OF JESUS AND THE FIG TREE.

For some people Christmas is a lonely time, a time of loss, or simply a time which lacks the full joy of all the lights and glitter which surrounds this time of year. Our “Blue Christmas Service” is a special time of worship for people looking for a more subdued celebration and time to reflect on the meaning of the season and the loss or difficulties they face within it.
