Why breakfast?

1 Jun
Breakfast

Breakfast

Breakfast represents the first nourishment of the day. Likewise, we hope that by cooking, eating and cleaning together and often, the bond of community and church family will be nourished, with relationships growing deeper and richer. Jesus and the early church exemplified this by living and working almost entirely in common. They shared almost everything, somewhat out of necessity and safety, but also because the great and difficult work of the church required the support of a loving community. From the beginning, God called his people into families and communities that share their faith and live their lives in common.  Two thousand and some years later, our society is wealthy, safe and technologically advanced, well beyond the imagination of those first Christians. A consequence, intended or not, is that our physical needs can be met living almost in total independence or isolation. And yet, much of the world is suffering from a hunger that cannot be satisfied by solitary means. Our avarice consumption of most everything to satisfy that hunger only leaves us with the hangover of loneliness, despair and low self-worth, and we soon are hungry again.  Can the Church be a better example for the world than the constant and hypnotic siren song that promotes and idolizes exuberant self-pride and independence? If so, we must reject our desire for a numbing, consumerized church model that is, at best, of moderate significance to its members and even less to the communities that surround it. We must reclaim our own sense of a humble, loving and interdependent community of worshipers. It has taken  long time for us to reach this state  and may take a long time to reclaim the spirit that began that first Pentecost, but God is patient. Can we start by sharing breakfast Sunday mornings at 9:30?

We’d LOVE for you to be our Valentine!

Looks like we're in this together!

Looks like we’re in this together!

We hope all friends, family and guest will make it to our annual Valentines Banquet this Sunday evening at 6:00pm. You will enjoy a Candle light dinner with soft music, some fun games and our traditional Spaghetti Dinner menu.

This meal is traditionally served by our young people. This a time when they put the adults first and take on a servants heart. This tradition was started in the old church in the mid 90’s. It eventually became the Valentines banquet.

In today’s modern world, much of the emphasis of Valentines seems to marketed toward Eros or sensual love, and we certainly appreciate this gift from God. However as a community we especially cherish and celebrate  agape love; a love of action or sacrifice that God demonstrates toward us, especially through his son Jesus, who made the greatest sacrifice for us.  When we reflect agape love back toward God, our spouses, children and very close relations, it is because God first loved us in this way and calls us to do the same. Philia love is vital for the more peaceful world that we are all longing for. This is the love of warm friendships and affections we have within our communities and beyond. This form of love is demonstrated by our empathy and sorrow we feel as we see others suffer, and the joy and smiles we have as they conquer their struggles.

Please leave your struggles, cares and sorrows at the door and come enjoy a relaxing time of fellowship with family and friends!
