Focus Questions:

1. Do you ever think a blessing is "too good to be true," even if you prayed for it?

2. What gifts does your "generation" bring to the life of faith today?

3. Where do you feel closest to God?

4. How do we find that our lives "matter totally" within God's larger story?

5. How do you and your church embody God's tender mercies for others?




  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!
