Moving in Faith

Moving in Faith to our new building is an act of hope for the future. We believe in a future with hope, in God's provision, in the community impact God is calling us to, in God's power to change lives, and in the welcoming embrace of God in Jesus Christ for all people!

Abide

In the midst of all that is going on it is easy to become disconnected from God, from others, and from ourselves. Our routines have changed, our connections are different, and it is hard to find our footing.

Maybe in this time is an invitation to learn again the invitation of God to abide, remain, stay with God. Maybe this is a chance to place our footing more firmly on the rock. Maybe it is time to nurture our connection to the vine.

Jesus teaches that it is in abiding that we find peace, joy, direction, love, purpose, and life abundance. Maybe when so much is in limbo we can discover in a new and deeper way the unchanging truth that "In Christ alone my soul finds rest." (adapted from Psalm 62:1)
