Christian Meditation, Saturdays during Lent
Meditation has become mainstream, used in healthcare, exercise classes, workplaces, and other settings. But Christian meditation has a rich tradition spanning nearly two thousand years. On Saturdays during Lent, we will explore the history and the practice of meditation. Facilitated by Amy Starr Redwine, all who attend will walk away with concrete tools to practice this ancient spiritual discipline.  Click here to register or sign up in the church office.  The time will be determined by those registered.  




We Choose Welcome
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.  Matthew 25:35
The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its predecessor denominations have consistently called the church to welcome refugees in the name of Jesus. This call began when the 160th General Assembly (1948) of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America called for the resettlement of persons made refugees and displaced by World War II and continued through the 222nd General (2016) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)  statement calling the church  to “respond to the ancient biblical directive to provide for the stranger and the sojourner. Read more from the Presbyterian Church, USA.
