Issue No. 52
Worship Service

What is it you treasure in your heart this season? On Sunday, we'll take a dive into Mary's heart and her special call from God. We'll look at the treasures found there, the truths about who Jesus is and how God is working in the world, and more. As we approach the new year, we'll encounter the words and truths that God has written on our own hearts and we'll ponder what messages we need to bring with us in the new year. Come and be in worship together this Sunday! Carol-Georgine West will be providing our music Jennifer Murray preaching. Childcare available.

Working with Rev. Dana, we will explore different Enneagram types and how we use the innate gifts we've been given by God. The Enneagram is a dynamic system for self-knowledge and spiritual transformation. We will go deeper into understanding our gifts and our "growing edges" in a fun and reflective style. Early bird rate, retreat details, more on the Enneagram, and sign ups available here. Find this link on our website, under the menu item 'Events' and 'More Upcoming Events'.
