Grounded and Growing

Just as our highways are carefully constructed, maintained, and adapted for future generations, so we must consider how we adapt our mission center, use current technology, welcome the gifts and talents of newer members, and discover fresh expressions of the Gospel in worship.             As we prepare for the renovation and expansion of our building, we seek to remove many barriers with a full elevator, an enlarged narthex and chancel, larger and more accessible rest rooms on both levels, a drop off area at main entrance, increased handicapped parking, improved safety and security for our Sunday School and pre-school, and a new designated hospitality area (and expansion off current narthex) for the congregation and community.             Adaptations along the way might not only open the eyes and ears and hearts of younger generations and newer members to the Gospel and the blessings of Christian community but also may open us up to the kingdom of God in ways we haven’t known

Prayer for Las Vegas

God, our refuge and strength, we pray for all affected by the shootings in Las Vegas and we grieve over violence in our world. Heal the injured, comfort those who mourn and strengthen those providing aid. Through our struggle and confusion, empower us to work for justice and peace, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen
