Focus Questions:

1. What is your favorite image for God?

2. Have you ever done anything purely "for God's sake"?

3. In what ways has the church been faithful to God's covenant? In what ways have we failed?

4. Have you ever experienced "deep, wounded love" that somehow gets past anger and disappointment?

5. What does Holy Saturday mean to you? Do you feel as if you live in an "in-between time"?


If you are looking for a church where you are welcome, and where you can make a difference - please join us!





In the face of division and fear, let us resolve to truly "Be the Church"..



 Please - Plan to join us to have a great Sunday morning, and -  Feel free to bring your family and friends as we continue celebrate the triumph of Love...and contemplate our response




After worship,  stay for a fellowship - snacks, coffee, tea, etc... something we always enjoy!
