Stories bring us meaning. Stories bring us hope. Stories offer us new life. Stories have the power to transform us into the people God created us to be. Watch this short video to find out how stories help us build strength and resilience for challenging times.

Our summer program schedule begins this week. On Sundays we will read and respond to a Bible story. We’ll also share 2–3 activities and discussion starters to do with your family. On Tuesday we’ll meet online at 7 p.m. for our midweek pause to see what real life connections we are making with the story. On Thursdays we will share a lunchtime story. Come, share stories with us.

Activities

Family Faith Prompts: Keep the Sunday conversation going with short, engaging activities that connect with the week’s theme.

Color this flame for next week’s Pentecost worship service and chapel! Pentecost is the day we celebrate the birthday of the church and the coming of the Holy Spirit.
