Come as you are. Brokenness is welcome here. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this is a place of grace. There’s no need to hide. When life gets messy (and it will), we don’t fake it around here. We believe God meets us in our real lives, not the lives we wished we had. We embrace the struggle of becoming fully alive in God because we know the only way out is through. Life in God is a mystery and its questions don’t have tidy black and white answers. Together, we seek Jesus’ third way of grace and truth.
Come. Engage with us in the struggle of becoming fully alive in God.
The teaching of God's Word is the primary focus of our worship on Sunday mornings. The messages are designed to challenge, inspire, affirm, and help you discover the next step in your personal journey with God. We also proclaim together with modern music who God is and who we are in God.
Sundays 9am & 11am
Sun, Dec 23, 9am & 11am
Mon, Dec 24, 3pm
Sun, Dec 30, 10am
We invite you to read and reflect on these Scriptures in preparation for the third Sunday in Advent, December 16.
Walk together with us through Advent and Christmastide with these reflections following the sermon each week. #TransformationTuesdays
From Dec 9 message by
Drew Pederson, Governing Board Elder
“Abraham was always willing to go to God with his questions. Even when his false self got in the way, when he tried to make things happen in his own strength, he always made the choice to return to God’s way. Abraham wasn’t perfect, but faithful. And God––who gives life to the dead and calls into existence things that do not now exist––this God is always making a way for us to pursue hope and faith and love. God has done and is doing everything that needs to be done in order for us to respond to God.”
• Reflecting Inward: As you notice places within yourself that struggle to respond in God’s ways of hope, faith and love, take those struggles to God. Like Abraham, we can be bold to come to God in our imperfections, laying out our struggles, needs and questions before Him and trusting that He will give us what we need.
• Reaching Outward: You are part of “Abraham’s offspring” that God promised would be a blessing to the entire world. Ask God to make you increasingly sensitive to ways He’s calling you to share hope in this Advent-waiting season, to be with someone in their faith-struggle, and to find His creative ways of loving others.
