“And walk in the way of love, just as Christ has loved us.”

Ephesians 5:2

The Christian Education and Open, Affirming, and Reconciling Committees have planned a church-wide theme for the 2016-2017 Program Year: “Walking in The Way of Love”. We see the chance to build on scripture from the Book of Ephesians, Chapter 5, Verse 2: “And walk in the way of love, just as Christ has loved us”.

Early Christians called the Church, The Way. You don’t belong to it; you travel it. We view this theme as more than an idea; we hope to start a movement. A movement of more than just tolerance of others. And a movement beyond simply respecting each other. We want to try to meet others in love.

Please check the blog below for committee sponsored events and church happenings and the photo gallery at the bottom of the page.


Walking in The Way of Love Prayer

Loving God, I pray that you:

Remind me to see you in myself and others, knowing

we are all created in your image.

Make me a messenger of love by bringing kindness and compassion to all I do.

Empower me to make amends and seek forgiveness when I have hurt someone,

as well as speak up when I have been hurt.

Fill me with the Holy Spirit so I have the courage to advocate for anyone who is

left out, laughed at, talked about, or discriminated against.

Help me acknowledge and embrace the diverse beauty of your kingdom.

Amen.
