The rhythm of the seasons...
We are part of a movement much larger than ourselves, and because of that we affirm the rhythm of the seasons. Like so many churches now and throughout the centuries, we acknowledge that “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). And so in ways old and new, we observe the ancient rhythm of the church, celebrating Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost. Built into this rhythm is the full spectrum of the human experience with God: anticipation and fulfillment, proclamation and response, lament and joy.

Love God. Be the church. Bless the world.
