Class – “Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection and the Mission of the Church”

April 8, April 15, April 22, April 29, and May 6
9:30-10:15 AM in the parlor

Christians normally think of the future in terms of heaven, but the promised reality is far greater — a new heaven and a new earth. In these sessions, we will explore the full scope of what the Bible has to say about the world to come and the world that is. What hope does the Gospel hold for this present life, and in what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope as individuals and as a church? Join Pastor Hancock for this conversation about the mission of the church in light of the Good News of Easter.

Class – “Self-Care as a Spiritual Practice”

March 18
9:30-10:15 AM in the parlor

Self-care is a tricky topic in our time. Within the context of our me-oriented, self-centered American culture, self-care can look like selfishness and entitlement which Jesus spoke against. What does it look like within the other-oriented Christ-centered culture of the church? Is self-care appropriate or important? If so, why? How can it be a spiritual practice? Come join this conversation with Lynn Holden and wrestle with these questions.

Lenten Study


Wednesdays during Lent: February 21, 28, March 7, 14, and 21

 6:30 – 7:00 PM – Simple Soup Supper
7:00 – 7:45 PM – Lenten Study: Reflecting on Holy Week

Lent is an annual season of spiritual discipline and preparation, beginning with Ash Wednesday. Lent anticipates the celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ. Often during this season, people decide to give up something or change a negative habit.

The Adult Spirituality Team extends a cordial invitation for you to take on a spiritual activity every Wednesday of Lent – a study led by Pastor Trent. We will explore the importance of the events of Holy Week as depicted in the Gospel of Mark.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, February 14 so we can make meal and childcare preparations. You can do so by or calling the church office.

We look forward to growing our faith together.
