The Gospel of Mark doesn’t have a nativity story. So where’s the Advent message? It’s in every aspect of Jesus’ life, death, and beyond. The Incarnation – God comes to earth in human form to be baptized, teach, heal, eat, and die. This is what we celebrate at Christmas. Mark shows us just how radical and celebration-worthy it is! Holy Disruption presents a fresh understanding of the holiness of Christmas grounded, not in a conventional cozy Christmas message, but through Mark’s disquieting gospel. Mark invites its readers to experience God’s disruptive but transformative love for us and our world. This year our church will use the season of Advent to facilitate conversation and connection with each other and the meaning of this time in the church year.
Lenten Study – Wednesday Evening, February 10 – 7:30 – 8:30pm

On Wednesday evenings over the course of Lent we will be studying the power of prayer and opening ourselves to being changed through the practice of prayer.

Foster “Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home” which will be available through the church for $21.00 / copy. (Hardbound Edition).
