Faith Seeking Understanding...

For the week of Sunday, January 6, 2019

The Christian life has often been (mis)understood as being about content - what one believes? However, there is another way of looking at what it means to be a Christian. During the coming weeks, we will look at some of the fundamental concepts used by Christians and place them within a basic but profound framework.

As always, the hope is that you will not leave worship the same as when you entered. So, heads and hearts up, transformation remains a possibility.

See you in church on Sunday.

But wait... there's more:

Leadership remains one of the most critical decisions a congregation can make in this time of rapid change in society and church. Therefore, our current work on developing a staffing model assumes even greater importance than in times past.
The more we know about what we want and need, the more likely we will choose well. So WE NEED YOU TO TELL US about your hopes and dreams, your worries and needs.
Otherwise, we're guessing! (And sometimes that works, but often it doesn't!)
