Upcoming Services & Other Events

last updated January 27, 2015

We ask congregants to please arrive and be seated in the Sanctuary between 10:45 and 11:00. If you arrive late, the usher will let you in at the appropriate time or a sign will be posted that you should use the rear entrance of the sanctuary (the entrance from the steps nearer the street) so as not to disrupt the service in progress.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, February 15th, 11:00 a.m. -- A People Without a Vision Perish -- Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

Proverbs 29:18 may be one of the most misapplied verses in all the church's rhetoric of today. Many a congregational leader has used it to imbue their strategies with a "do it this way or we will fail" consequence. Today, I am going to lay out for you a dream of mine and maybe yours. We have been down the road of Entrepreneurialism, Vision statements, Mission statements and more. Now it's time to decide where we as a congregation are going. Will we make it? Or shall we over time perish, limp along? Or shall we do great things and be the change agents I think we are called to be? Join us for a serious look at what's possible.
