July Crossroads

The Seven

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!

Paint Your Heart Out

 pyho2015

On Saturday, August 1st, we will be joining with others in Lake Worth and Palm Beach County to paint the house of one of our neighbors. This won’t be an opportunity for everyone, because it will be hot work. However, if you’re physically able we would love for you to join us in participating in this practical way of sharing God’s love with our community! If you would like to participate, contact Pastor Jason. Stay tuned for more information.

Pentecost Sunday

What was it about the early church that made such an impact on the society? Pentecost is the commemoration of the birth of the church, when the Holy Spirit blew into the lives of the early followers of Jesus.

Join us Sunday as we explore the story of the Pentecost and we ask with the prophet Ezekiel “can these dry bones live?”

Farewell Party for Faustina
