Live Stream Schedule:
Sundays at 10 a.m.
When we see God for who He is, it is good and right to respond with hearts of adoration and worship. Yet, when we see God for who He truly is, we also see ourselves as we truly are. The call to confession is not an exercise that shames us but rather a word of grace the frees us.
Social distancing can appear to stymie true gospel community, connection, and camaraderie. But, we can still gather with the saints by empowering members and attenders to connect to existing groups in our church and to launch new groups for this season.

This Week's Reading
Rest as Faithful Surrender
Written by Stephen Hess, Preaching and Discipleship Specialist
In the first two weeks of quarantine, I took less than 2,000 steps each day and was up until 2 a.m. each night. Now, there’s an obvious physical connection there. Since then, I’ve walked every day, and I’m falling asleep sooner. But I’m only slightly less restless than I was two months ago. I don’t know how you cope with fear and anxiety, but I find that I oscillate between checking out and making checklists. I either escape through the hole that is YouTube (watching old WWE or Gordon Ramsey clips) or create detailed lists for projects around the house or research. Just a couple days into quarantine, I had inventoried all the food we have in the house. These are the “little” ways I try to find comfort and grasp at control when I lose sight of God’s presence. This is what restlessness looks like on the surface.
