Living Stones: Peacemakers in the Holy Land
This presentation is available on our YouTube channel.
Throughout Pastor Matt’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land, he and his fellow pilgrims met with a number of peacemakers who are committed to bringing a just, peaceful, and lasting resolution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. They are Christians, Muslims, Israeli, Palestinian, clerics, international workers, artists, farmers, scientists, activists, and parents who find healing in sharing stories of their losses in the hope of reconciliation. Their common desire is that their stories would be shared and that peace could once again come to the Holy Land.
Hear the stories of these peacemakers—stories of tragedy, struggle, hope, and friendship—and how, despite the ongoing tensions in the Holy Land, God is at work building bridges of peace and shining beacons of hope. This presentation is available on our YouTube channel.
Services during Lent
Lenten Vespers, Thursdays, beginning March 2, Supper at 6:15 pm, Worship at 7 pm, in person and online
This is a very special time in our Christian calendar, Lent. It is the time we as a church family can make preparation for our risen Christ at Easter. Please join us in person or online for weekly Lenten vespers services. Vespers are an evening service of prayer, designed to draw a spiritual close to the day and to prepare ourselves for holy rest. In addition to songs and prayers, we will practice "lectio divina" (divine reading) of passages from the Sermon on the Mount.
