Some concluding thoughts on our "Be the Church" theme using Jesus' descriptions of his followers as salt and light.
As a building, a church is just a mass of steel, concrete, and wood. It’s just a building, nothing more, nothing less. What a building a church is the people who choose to show up and “be the church.”

In this series, we will explore the season of Advent and how it helps us anticipate and prepare for Jesus' return.
In a very real sense, we do not come to church, we are the church. We are to be the hands and feet and love of Jesus to people who often don't even understand that they need him.
This series by Pastor Kristin is based on the book, Uncomfortable: The Awkward and Essential Challenge of Christian Community.

In this series, Pastor Rob loosely follows the plot of the Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol.

We have not been called to navigate this life along. We have been called to deep, committed Christian community.
