We’ve launched a new Journey Program!      What Would Love Do?

On Sunday, February 1, we started a new series of sermons and small groups with a focus on service to the Lord, the church, and to our neighbors. For seven weeks, our worship services and studies will center on the parable of the sheep and goats from the gospel of Matthew, where Jesus speaks of the hungry, the thirsty, the sojourner, the naked, the sick, and the imprisoned.

Our program this year includes three parts:

  1. weekly Sunday messages
  2. small study and support groups
  3. service opportunities in the community

Everyone is invited to participate in whatever way you can.

The Workbook

This seven-week series is designed to help individuals and groups explore the call to serve. In the accompanying workbook, authors Sasha Silverman and John Odhner offer an in-depth study of the parable in Matthew 25, in which Jesus describes the different classes of the neighbor and how we are invited to respond with care. The result is inspiring, practical, and motivating. It is a thoughtful and compassionate exploration of New Church teachings on loving the neighbor.

Each of the seven weeks of the program explores a different fundamental human need Jesus tells us to serve:
Feb 1.—Love Serves (Hungry)
Feb. 8—Love Brings Truth (Thirsty)
Feb. 15—Love Welcomes (Stranger/sojourner)
Feb. 22—Love Comforts (Naked)
Mar. 1—Love Visits (Sick)
Mar. 8—Love is Present (Imprisoned)
Mar. 15—Love Rejoices (Wrap-up Week)

Join us each Sunday!

And set aside Sunday, March 15 for a Celebration Sunday! We will have a special guest musician join us for a worship service in-the-round, and also a SOUP-er delicious lunch and service project
