As the world around us is rapidly changing, so to do our lives. If the church is a safe place for all to find wholeness how do we meet one another where we are? How do we authentically LOVE one another? Our congregation has an immense passion for helping the “other.” This passion is emerging into a system of compassionate collaboration allowing all to enter and join the conversation authentically and with their whole selves recognizing that in some places in our lives we are all the “other.”

This all means that “Emerging Ministries” is less of a program and more of an open invitation to ask ourselves who we are, how we connect with all of creation, and how we live out God’s will to love one another.

We invite you to join us on January 18 at 6 p.m. as we begin a series of meaningful movies with Before the Flood, a documentary collaboration of Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and others that takes a look at how climate change affects our environment and what society can do to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the planet.
