9:30 am Sunday Worship 
with Holy Communion

Mark 4:1-34

Join us for a “Tape out” event after service this Sunday!

In the process of looking for our interim space we found that we needed to visualize just how big
different options were. The church council decided that we would put some painters tape on the floor and see how different size spaces could work out. 


This method of seeing what it would look like is helpful to most folks, because we have so much of our brains devoted to visual processing. It will help make it real and provide guidance when we are looking for our
interim space.


So come join the fun of defining our interim space!

Movies that Matter 2020 Update

This fall we tested a different format for Movies that Matter, we took it 'On the Road'. We met at movie theaters and followed the viewings with conversation at local restaurants. There are many benefits to this format - we watched current movies and went out into the community. The new format has also had it's challenges - picking a movie the week of and communicating that to the group, plus not having the potluck style meal together.


This winter the organizers of MTM are taking a break to reassess what format works and we want to hear from you!


The purpose of the events is to watch films that encourage deeper conversations and form connections with each-other. What do you think the best way to do this is? Please email Pastor David or Rachael Jans and let us know how you would like to see Movies that Matter take shape. 

Which format do you prefer? 

A) Potluck meal, followed by a film picked by a member and discussion afterward (consistent location). 

B) Meeting at a theater and have the discussion at a restaurant

C) Something completely different! Tell us your new ideas!


Are you interested in taking a stronger leadership role in this group? Include that in your email as well. We will be in touch with our findings. Thank you!
