We had a great Soul Care Day on Thursday August 29th as we focused on Listening to the Shepherd’s Voice. Shepherds in the Ancient Near East called their sheep by name, and we spent time listening and discerning how He calls each of us by name.
Soul Care Days are held about once every quarter. Keep an eye out for
our next one - we'd love for you to join us!
Saturday, September 21st - Shame and Glory:
A Spiritual Formation Workshop
When humanity was created by God, it was said that they were "naked and not ashamed." Something changed. Today, we are often haunted by shame. What is shame? How do we recover a sense of our created design? This day will involve teaching and discussion as well as personal exercises for your growth.

For many of us, grief and loss color the Christmas season in ways that can make it quite difficult. This service will provide space to pray and lament in ways that connect us to God's heart. The weeks leading up to Christmas are traditionally called Advent, and they focus on finding hope and learning to wait. Rather than denying pain or acting like everything is ok, we will come together trusting that He is with us.
