Preaching

"King Jesus is not simply satisfied with liberating the individual heart and soul and mind, but King Jesus also sets his sights on the human community. He comes to liberate our communities from the rulers of tyranny: the tyranny of injustice, the tyranny of hatred and suspicion, the tyranny of greed, the tyranny of fear. Earthly rulers will arise who will encourage the hold of these tyrannies upon us -- who will even tell us that these tyrannies are good and good for us. But these are words intended to imprison us. King Jesus comes to liberate. Today, on Christ the King Sunday, we celebrate the power of our King, Jesus, who will ultimately triumph over all human tyrannies. Tyrants and strong men and dark forces within and without may rule for the moment, but Christ is King and his victory is assured." (from Coup D'Etat, 11-20-16 )

"And I bet you have known some prophets too. They are those who tell the truth and call us to turn to the source of truth. Some do this gently. Others do this in ways that confront us, even irritate us. A lot of times we wish they would go away, stop going on about racial injustice, about global warming, about educational inequalities, about torture, about a living wage. But thank God for the prophets, the truth-tellers, who call us home again and again when we stray from the way of God. If you want to discover signs of God's presence, look for the truth-tellers, for those calling us to turn again to the path of God." (from Truthful Tidings, 12-4-16)

Adult Education Hour

Adult Education is offered September through May on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. (between the two services). These classes are led by the pastor, congregational members, and sometimes guest teachers, and feature a diversity of topics such as Bible studies, matters of faith and belief, contemporary issues, and mission projects around the globe.

Home Bible Study

A small group of ten individuals gather in the home of Gladys Gifford and share in a Bible study, guided by the
Horizons Bible study publications. This fall and winter we are studying Who is Jesus? What a Difference a Lens Makes by Judy
Yates Siker. The group meets on selected Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Interested? Contact Gladys directly at 
gladys.gifford@earthlink.net.schedule.

Wednesday Night Bible Study

The Rev. Stuart Buisch of Campus Church ConneXion also offers Bible study and a light meal at 5:00 on Wednesday nights in the Holzwarth Room (usually twice a month). Call the church office for the next date.
