All worship services are Sunday at 9:30 a.m. 
 
 
Feb 4th     "Being All Things to All People"     1 Corinthians 9:16-23
 
Even in Pail's day, some 2000 years ago, Christians lived in a diverse culture, full of different beliefs and practices.  In order to spread the message of God's love to all, Paul writes "I have become all things to all people, that I may by all means save some."  We will celebrate our "Open Table" Communion, all are welcome at our Lord's Table.
 
Feb 11th       "The Truth comes Shining Through"     Mark 9:2-13
 
The Transfiguration of Jesus left Peter, James and John dazzled, confused and (momentarily) speechless.  They caught a glimpse of the truth about who Jesus really was.  Jesus was "standing outside of time" in the company of Moses and Elijah.  It would surprise many Christians to know how many have had "mystical" experiences with God - far beyond everyday explanation.
 
 
Feb 14th     Ash Wednesday     Psalm 51
 
We begin our 40 Day season of Lent with an Ash Wednesday service.  Our scriptures from Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21 call us to practice our piety in the proper manner, while Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:20-6:10 embrace the "acceptable time" of our salvation.
 
Feb 18th     "The Call"       Mark 1:14-20
 
Saying "Yes" to God's call to follow Jesus is an act of faith and trust almost guaranteed to take us in unexpected directions, doing amazing things.  Pastor Tom Rothhaar will lead us in worship.
 
Feb 25th     "That Crazy Cross!"     Mark 8:31-38
 
Jesus's call to "deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow me" runs counter to almost everything in our human nature.  In a world that prompts us to ask "What's in it for me?"  Jesus tells us "for those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake and the sake of the gospel will save it."
