Devotional Series

Dear friends,

As we lean into our theme “A Weary World Rejoices” this Advent season, we hope you will include our Advent Devotional as an Advent spiritual practice. This year, we asked a few of our Elders who are rolling off the Session to reflect on our Advent theme. There is one devotional for each week, which includes a meditation, prayer, and activity. Choose one day each week to read the meditation and prayer and do the activity. We hope this devotional will be a blessing to you this season.

Dear friends,

This Lent, we share stories about making all things new through a Lenten Devotional written by the members of our community. It is our hope that these Scripture passages and personal reflections will be a guide as we journey together as a church through this season. Within the pages of the devotional, you will find many connections made with stories about God bringing something new into our lives.

Blessings to you during this season of Lent,
