We can all experience times of sadness, despair, depression and worry. And there are some of us that fall deeply into these kinds of feelings and we cannot seem to get back out again. Yes, mental illness is real. There are some of us who cannot, for one reason or another, live a balanced life without the support of therapy, medication and other means of support.
As a society we need to bring this topic into the light. We need to move it out of the place of shame and blame and recognize that people from all walks of life are suffering from mental illness and that we can do much more to support one another.
Join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as we break some of the silence around this topic.
A new year is about to begin. May we use this as an opportunity to make a fresh start. This Sunday begin the New Year by asking the Lord to be with you and show you the best direction forward; guiding your steps along the way.
Hope to see you for worship on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Happy New Year!
Come celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ in a candle light service beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve. It is a beautiful, peaceful service for people of all ages. We hope you will join us on this special evening.
On this Fourth Sunday of Advent the subject is HOPE. The Christmas story brings hope in what is described as a very dark and desolate time – when hope seemed lost. In our personal lives we can at times feel that there is no hope. That we have been abandoned or forgotten or left out of the happiness every one else seems to have been blessed with. This Sunday come and hear the message of hope the Lord has given in the WORD. As Mary said when she learned that she would carry the promised Savior: “With God nothing will be impossible.”
Please join us Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
The Christmas story will be presented in living pictures as a Christmas Tableaux (Nativity play) this Sunday, December 11th. beginning at 5:00 pm. This is a wonderful service for children and adults love it too. It is a good way to get filled with the spirit of Christmas.
You are invited to stay afterwards for a potluck supper.
Please Note: There will be no morning service this Sunday the 11th
The celebration of Christmas comes with a promise of peace. It is something we hope and yearn for at a busy time of year and at a time where we reflect on the passing year and all its tumultuous events, both personally and globally. Sometimes as we consider the nature of our lives we wonder if the prophecy of the Lord’s birth and the ensuing peace that was promised was all a hoax: did something go wrong? Where’s the peace?
This Sunday we will look at the what true peace is, where it comes from and how to make it a living part of our lives. See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
We are reminded by many stories in the Word about how important our attitude is in our spiritual life. There are many references to those who received blessings from the God because they possessed humility: people like Abel, Moses, Abraham, David, the Centurion, and a certain tax collector. Conversely, we see examples of people with hard hearts whose lives were cursed: like Cain and Pharaoh.
This Sunday we will celebrate Thanksgiving as a congregation. As we think about gratitude and thanksgiving we will look at the spiritual benefit of cultivating humility within our selves. Humility can literally turn a life that feels upside down, right side up; allowing love and insight from God to flow in and impact our lives.
Come celebrate with us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. We will enjoy a community potluck lunch and pie baking contest following the service.
Feeling stuck? Feeling like you need to find a new direction? Good. Let’s get moving toward it.
This Sunday the Rev. David Lindrooth will be giving the message. We hope to see you there at 10:30 a.m.
We all want freedom for ourselves. Freedom is actually essential to our spiritual lives. Nothing can become truly part of our spiritual life unless it is chosen freely. And so God protects our freedom with great power.
Here is the challenge: do we value other people’s freedom in the same way recognizing how important it is to everyone else too?
See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
In this final part of the Mindful Communication Challenge we look within at our own willingness to do things differently. We have examined healthier listening, and running what we communicate through the three filters of Is It True? Is It Kind and Is It Useful? But are we really willing to do things differently? What excuses come up for us when we are confronted with living and communicating differently?
