WINTER BAPTISM

  • SUNDAY, JANUARY 23: Baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ, practiced by individuals who have decided to follow Jesus. We believe baptism is an important step in our spiritual journey after we have acknowledged our faith in Christ's salvation and is a way of affirming a faith that has taken root in our hearts. 


    All candidates (kids, youth, and adults) will go through a preparation process for Believer's Baptism. You will be contacted with more information after you sign-up.

RULE OF LIFE RETREAT

  • SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26: Our morning together will focus on key aspects of life that move us toward God, ourselves and others. Some call it a "rule of life," but more than a set of rules, we hope to discover and develop a whole and holy way of living that supports becoming fully alive in God. Together we will consider how a sustainable rhythm of the tangible and practical spiritual practices of sabbath, silence, solitude, generosity and more might help us experience the abundant life Jesus promises.
