In the program/ministry year ahead Pastor Christine and I look forward to wrestling with and exploring many of the issues raised above. We are calling this year, “Retired or Inspired? – Engaging the Bible’s Big Story.” Starting with Rally Day on September 9th we will be using the Narrative Lectionary instead of the Revised Common Lectionary. The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. On the weeks from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church. Rather than exploring bits and pieces of scripture passages we will take time to engage longer passages and complete stories. Through sermons, Bible studies, book studies, DVD’s series and more; we will do our best to lead the congregation into renewed appreciation for our Book of Faith, the Bible.
  • Rally Day
        September 9 –  “Our Vision: Inclusive Grace. Contagious Love”.

We are so excited to watch and read together the New York Times National Bestseller, “Love Does” book and DVD series by by Bob Goff.  This will follow along with Pastor Dale and Pastor Christine’s fall preaching series. 

Bob Goff is an attorney and a US Ambassador who founded the non-profit, “Love Does,” to “find daring, productive, and effective ways to fight the injustices committed against children.”  Love Does works to promote human rights and education in current and recovering conflict zones, like Uganda, Iraq, Nepal, Somalia and India. 

Goff is a hilarious and powerful storyteller as he shares stories of contagious love in his travels and work throughout the world.  Bob believes that love does not stop at thoughts and feelings, but takes action – that Love Does.  Goff will help you build relationships with your neighbors and will inspire you to find natural ways to take action in your neighborhoods and lives.   

Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob’s life and attitude will inspire you to make your ordinary life incredible, too. 


Join us this Fall for “Love Does” –a 5-week DVD series by internationally renowned speaker and author, Bob Goff.
