Christian Education

On-line Bible study focused on the Gospel of John and how it impacts the way we live. 

 Worship

We are reading the Gospel of John. During Lent the “Holy Week” passages included stories that usually aren’t heard on Sunday, like the foot washing and Peter’s denial.

On Easter over 1,000 worshippers celebrated the resurrection with special music, a labyrinth reflection garden, and special treats.

Pastor John and Pastor Steve led 19 worship services at Birchwood, Kilkenny, Meadows, Parmly, Keystone and Cherrywood Senior Living Centers, bringing God’s redeeming word to the homebound.

Serving the Wider Community

Events for the wider community included the Father Daughter Ball, Goat Yoga to support farming development in Tanzania, collecting donations for local food shelves through “Souper Bowl” and “Rangers Supporting Rangers.”

Stewardship of our building included hosting groups such Boy Scouts, U-Care Dental, an organic food buying co-op, homeschool groups, and Early Childhood Family Education.

Promoted wellness through parish nurse blood pressure checks, Zumba, YogaDevotion and Reach for the Stars fitness for seniors.

Made over 150 visits to the homebound and hospitalized.
