Happy New Year! Come and begin 2023 together in worship and gather around the Lord’s Table. Come with the anticipation of something new. We will continue the Christmas season, sing some carols, hear the story of longing, and witness the hope of a Baby born in Bethlehem. Let us share Hope as we move into a new calendar year together. Luke 1:21-38.

Everything Changes
In our sermon series we are exploring how our brains were designed to be suspicious of change, and for good reason–homeostasis in good measure helps us thrive, protecting us from danger. But if we look closely at what the Creator set in motion, we find that change is the most constant part of life and necessary for animating our spirits as we find renewed purpose throughout life. Jesus advocated for changes that would keep us moving toward greater goodness!  “Everything Changes” John 12:20-26 In our scripture this week Jesus asks us to let go of life “as it is” in order to create and multiply the love that is eternal. What feels like the chaos, or recklessness, of change is the breaking-open of possibility and the sprouting of new life. This is what it means to follow the change-maker Jesus and serve his purpose of more love in the world. -Pastor Courtney
