Meal Night – March 28th

Ok….so this installment of ‘meal night’ is actually taking place in the afternoon — this Sunday — immediately after worship.  And this time around, we’ll be combining old with new.  Old = potluck (bring something to pass if you can).  New = a Wii bowling tournament (adults — you better bring your “A” game.  I […]

Jesus of Nazareth

During this series we’re hoping to, in the words of Eugene Peterson, ‘eat this book’.  We want to chew on the words of Scripture so that they begin to seep deep into our souls.  Below, you’ll find the ‘story of the week’.  We hope you’ll join us for the journey. April 12-18: Luke 24

Meal Night – March 12th

Valentine’s Day Brunch

Just to be clear: this is not a brunch you need a date for.  No romantic candles or heart shaped candy.  Instead, this meal is a chance for the Branch and New Life (the church who owns the building we meet in) to connect with one another and build relationships (it just so happens it […]

Meal Night – February 5th

When people sit around a table and share food together something happens. Laughs are shared. Appetites are satisfied. Relationships begin. That’s why we regularly gather together for ‘meal nights’: a simple evening of food and conversation. Our next gathering is…

30 Days to Live (1)

Week 1: Living in the Moment James 4:13-17 After spending time in prayer for Haiti, we dove into the first week of this powerful series.

Help for Haiti

As we’ve watched the images and heard the stories from Haiti, our hearts have been broken.  We mourn the devastation and the loss.  But we also know that we are called to act.  We join our voices with our brothers and sisters in Haiti who are crying out to God for mercy and provision.  And […]
