A message from our minister, Rev. Sara Huisjen

All of our lives, we live in need of each other, and in need of ‘deepening places,’ too, relationships and communities where we feel seen and affirmed, loved and challenged, called to grow and become our better selves, more honest, generous and caring people.

All of our lives, we live with a sense of longing to belong somewhere, to be a part of some thing, some movement and purpose larger than ourselves alone.

At church, we aspire to create that kind of community.
At church, we aim to reach out to each other in love and receive in gratitude.
At church, we choose to show up, to be and become a part of building a vibrant
community and spiritual home; a place in our lives where we can bring our whole selves,
where we’re asked to listen with an open heart and be willing to be changed.
Church is a place where we can come together to grow our souls,
to feel our spirit enlivened with a sense of reverence and awe,
to literally be able to remember – to piece back together again –
our minds and hearts, and know we are connected, and dependent on each other,
and a part of some larger, magnificent whole.

We welcome you to explore ways you might choose to be
a part of creating & nurturing this vibrant church community I am grown by and love.

Oct 19, “Dancing with the High Notes and the Low”, Jody Wolford-Tucker

Contemporary western life is a funny thing. On one hand, it seems that carefree revelry is the epitome of human aspiration; and on the other, we’re faced with news so horrific we don’t know how to respond. We’ll consider how we can live thoughtfully, love caringly, and grow through loss gracefully.
