Christmas Eve Worship Services

Please join us on Christmas Eve for services that will bring the hope, peace, joy, and love of Christmas to you and your loved ones. We begin at 7:00pm with a Traditional Christmas Eve Service. Our children will be singing and placing Baby Jesus in the Manager. Communion will be shared around the table and we will close the service with the lighting of candles and the singing of Silent Night.

Our Candlelight Christmas Eve Service will begin at 11:00pm. This service will bring the best of the Christian tradition into our sanctuary and our lives as we experience the sights, sounds, symbols, and fragrance of this special night. Chancel Choir will be leading us in the beautiful liturgy and music of the ages. We will also close this service with the traditional lighting of the candles as we anticipate sharing the light of Christ with the world.

I Want to Be a Millenial When I Retire

I Want to Be a Millenial When I Retire

This NYTimes article has a little fun with the traditional definition of success, but it really struck a chord with me.  So many of us feel stuck by the definition of a successful life (often defined in dollar signs).  Why do we have to wait until we retire to have the life we want? How can we change society’s definition of success?  Or does that even matter . . . maybe we only have to change our own definition. 

What do you want to be when you retire?  Is there a way you could be that right now?

An evening with Michael Dowd

We are thrilled to be hosting Rev. Michael Dowd, author of “Thank God for Evolution”, as our guest at National Avenue this coming Thursday evening. As we prepare for this event, we invite you to watch Rev. Michael Dowd’s TedTalk, Why we struggle now.

Invite your friends and family to join us for dessert and coffee this Thursday, November 7th at 7:30pm in the Gallery at National Avenue, as we listen to one of the premier Eco-Theologians writing and lecturing today.

This special evening has been arranged by Dr. John Mihalevich in coordination with the Spirituality Cooperative.

Food stamps cut hurt our community

http://m.ky3.com/food-stamp-cuts-start-friday-1-in-6-mo-families-use-them/-/21050392/22763208/-/tm3e8b/-/index.html

As reported on KY3 this weekend, food stamp cuts in our nation will impact 1 in 6 families across the Ozarks. One of the organizations we support, Crosslines, featured on KY3, shows our own Kim Zimmerman working in the food pantry.  While continuing to donate our resources and time to organizations like Crosslines will be critical to helping people get food, we are still left wondering, what more can we do?
