Pruning for Growth, Sunday, 5-3-2015, 10:00 AM

Jesus asks us to abide in him. He tells us that he is the vine and we are the branches. As such, he promises that we will be pruned to bear more fruit. Pruning for growth? How’s that work … and is it working for us? We’ll explore this message further. Come expecting to be stretched and challenged, but ultimately embraced by the amazing grace of God. A friendly house of God, we sing joyfully, worship fully and follow the service with a lively and connecting time of fellowship. Join us!

Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. We reach out to our neighborhood and world to share the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ. We laugh and cry together. We sing, and sometimes we dance. Our building is full of stained glass, carved wood, red-aisled carpets and hard wood floors.

We have been in ministry since 1908, and we have members who have been here for more than 50 of those years! Fellowship (coffee, tea, food and friendship) is a very important part of our time together; many of our friends and members linger over a lunch meal for 45 minutes or more. Our congregation includes third generation members, newcomers, centenarians, artists, world travelers and motorcyclists – to categorize just a few of our members (which of course is really utter folly as each one of us is too unique to put in a box!). Needless to say, we are welcoming – really; we even hosted a bar mitzvah once.
