Sunday, May 14 is Rev'd Marie's last service with us. There will be a light lunch following one service at 10:30. Please join us and wish Rev'd Marie the best as she enters this new phase.
Tom Zink's new book was published at the end of April. Seasoned: A Memoir of Grief and Grace is the story of Tom's unwitting grief journey of five decades that began when his older brother, Steve, was hit by a car and killed while on the paper route the two boys shared. But Seasoned is much more than a story of grief and recovery; it is also a poignant and, at times, humorous look at laughter and lightheartedness, winning and losing, and doubt and faith. At the 10:30 service on May 7,Tom will do a brief witness talk about the book which will be available to purchase after the service. He will sign copies for those who wish.
See Tom's website for more information.
Jesus said to (Martha), ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? (John 11:25,26)
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly (John 10:10)
In just a few days we will celebrate the marvellous promise of the Resurrection to eternal life. As a painting is enriched by the dark shadows that accentuate the light in it, so our walk through the shadowy confusion of Maundy Thursday and the deep darkness of Good Friday are essential if we are to know the joy of Easter Vigil and Easter Morning. ...continue reading "Easter Message from Rev’d Marie"

“It ain’t those parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand” – Mark Twain
We can sympathize a little with Mark Twain in his view of the Bible. There are parts that seem pretty hard to figure out – and others that are all too clear! ...continue reading "Being an Easter Church – means worshiping"

We say that we come to church on Sundays. We say we are The Church, not the building. Sometimes we talk about The Church (the body of Christ - all of the people world-wide who love and serve God in Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit). Sometimes, when we talk about “church”, we mean our own congregation here, ...continue reading "Breakfast on the Beach with Jesus"
