From the Pastor's Desk:
Praying with Jesus:The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who is in Heaven…hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us of our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil and the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thursdays, at 10am and 6:30pm, we invite you to join us weekly for our Bible Study series “The Lord's Prayer"

Grace Unbounded: Devotions for Lent 2022
Grace Unbounded provides daily devotions for each day from Ash Wednesday to the Vigil of Easter (traditionally known as Holy Saturday). Devotions begin with an evocative image and a brief passage from the Gospel of Luke (the gospel focus for 2022, year C in the Revised Common Lectionary). The writers then bring their unique voices and pastoral wisdom to the texts with quotations to ponder, reflections, and prayers.
In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus reaches out to all kinds of people. He proclaims good news—in particular, to those experiencing poverty, oppression, or captivity. Despite the tensions at the time between Jewish people and Samaritans, he tells a story about a Samaritan who shows what it means to be a neighbor. Jesus also responds to those who want healing, welcomes time with children, shows great regard for women, shares meals with “unsavory” characters, and seeks out people who have lost their way. No limits, no restrictions, no boundaries—not even death—can stop his love and grace for all people.
