Season of Creation

seasonofcreationbanner2

During September, we will participate in the Season of Creation during our worship services. In word, song, and visual art we will celebrate our Creator and creation and explore our place in the cosmos. Aqua, the blue green color of the planet Earth when viewed from outer space, invites us into this season, and the pulsing of God’s spirit that moves in and through all creation. During this four-week season, we experience the deep impulse of God’s word that calls forth creation and stirs life. We affirm our kinship with everything God has created and is creating, are made conscious of the crisis of human domination, and encourage to live in and toward a vision of new heavens and new earth. Join us for:

September 6th Planet Earth Sunday

September 13th Humanity Sunday

September 20th Sky Sunday

September 27th Mountain Sunday

We will gather at 6:30 PM to eat (just bring enough to share of whatever you are best at) and at 7:00 PM, we’ll start the movie McFarland, U.S.A., an inspirational film based on the true story of a cross country coach in a small California town who transforms a team of athletes into championship contenders.

The Seven

thesevenbanner

This Summer, we will take a brief break from the liturgical calendar to engage a worship series on “The 7,” where we will blow the dust off the seven historical “deadly sins” and their corresponding virtues. How do these 14th century ideas match with 21st century morality and ethics? Do these sins still plague us today? How do they affect us as a society? Can focusing on the 7 virtues help us combat the 7 deadly sins and improve our lives? We’ll leave the guilt aside and learn what The 7 have to teach us!
