Focus Questions:

  1. What do you think it means to "walk with God"?
  2. How do you experience yourself as included in this covenant made between God and Abraham and Sarah?
  3. Who else is included in this covenant, perhaps in spite of our expectations or even our wishes?
  4. What is a new name for God that may fit better with your own life experience, and the life experience of others in your time and place?
  5. What "unbelievable" things has God done in your life? How did you react?


If you are looking for a church where you are welcome, and where you can make a difference - please join us!





In the face of division and fear, let us resolve to truly "Be the Church"..



 Please - Plan to join us to have a great Sunday morning, and -  Feel free to bring your family and friends as we continue celebrate the triumph of Love...and contemplate our response




After worship,  stay for a fellowship - snacks, coffee, tea, etc... something we always enjoy!
