From the Sanctified Art creators of “Those Who Dream”: In our study of this season’s lectionary scriptures, the opening lines from Psalm 126 jumped off the page: “When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.” What does it look like to live as those who dream? The prophets, the psalmists, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world. In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality.
This theme is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time. Join us this Advent as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Join us as we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world.

~ Join us for worship ~
Each Sunday we gather at 10:30 am for a traditional worship service where we sing hymns, listen to holy scripture, pray together, and seek God’s presence. You can join us in-person, or virtually through a livestream on Zoom, or watch the recording of worship on our YouTube channel. If you’d like to join us on Zoom, please email us so we can add you to our email list.

We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month.

Children are welcome in worship at all times. We have a Young Disciples Time during worship so the pastor can spend some teaching time with the children. They are then welcome to return to their seats with you, or they may choose to go to childcare for the remainder of the service.
Nursery care is provided during worship if parents choose to take advantage of this service. All adults that supervise and care for our children are certified through Trusted con Confianza, which means they have gone through a thorough background check and an intense training to ensure the safety of all God’s children.
