Worship Services for January 2020

Updated: Apr 8

Next Generation Leaders by Andy Stanley Leaders instill courage in the hearts of those who follow. This rarely happens through words alone. It generally requires action…Somebody has to go first. By going first, the leader furnishes confidence to those who follow.…What has [already] been done is safe. But to attempt a solution to a problem that plagues the local church requires courage. Unsolved problems are gateways to the future. Leaders worth following are willing to face and embrace current reality, regardless of how painful it might be. It is impossible to lead without a dream. When leaders are no longer willing to dream, it is only a short time before followers are unwilling to follow.

January 5 “Looking Back, Looking Forward” – Burning Bowl Ceremony

In this ritual celebration of the new year, we will release what no longer serves us, and what calls us forth now - both personally and as a church community.

“Leadership requires two things: a vision of the world that does not yet exist and the ability to communicate it.” Simon Sinek


January 12 “Authority and Leadership”

Who has it, and how it is used.

“Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles like honesty, integrity, treating people with respect.” Stephen Covey


January 19 “Art as Prayer”

Exploring Art as a Spiritual Practice.

Guest Minister - Seminarian and professional musician Kiya Heartwood will preach and provide music.


January 26 “The Year 2020 Leaders Today vs Leaders of the Past”

What civil rights leaders can learn from each other

“When faith is completely replaced by creed, worship by discipline, love by habit; when the crisis of today is ignored because of the splendor of the past; when faith becomes an heirloom rather than a living fountain; when religion speaks only in the name of authority rather than with the voice of compassion—its message becomes meaningless.” Abraham Joshua Heschel
