The Gospel According to Mark. After Pentecost, we enter “Ordinary” season. This doesn’t mean we are in a boring season but a time to ask questions about our day-to-day lives in light of who Jesus is. What better way to enter this season than with the gospel of Mark, where we hear again who Jesus is and what it means to be his people. For more additional resources and more info read our recent blog here.
Open Table. Open Table exists as a food outreach for those in our neighborhood who may need a good meal. To give now select "Change for a Dollar" on the app or to volunteer, email Christin.
Actively Pursing Community. At the center of eternity lies a relationship, The Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit existing in perfect union. All people were created in the image of this relational God, meant to live like Him: in relationship with Him and one another. Yet we don’t. Sin separates us from God and from one another, alienating us from our relational source of purpose, value, and joy. But the good news of Jesus is that He, through the cross, is reconciling us back to Himself and to one another. In the gospel we are made family, empowered to live in honest humble relationship with one another. This is the church, God’s people united around God’s work, growing in genuine intimacy with Him and one another.
