Daring to name the pain weighing down or the song exulting your heart can make all the difference. To pray your prayers for you is an answer to our prayers. "God bless you and keep you. God make his face to shine upon you and give you peace." Amen.

Rev. Dr. Max Olmstead preaching

At the center of worship in our Christian tradition is the sermon, a time to reflect on where God’s Word intersects, informs, enriches and directs our lives. In the sermon our in-house theologian, our pastor, seeks to help people see themselves and their lives in the light of God’s love and command to love others.
