ALOHA! We’re having a Luau on Sunday, January 28. In 1819 when King Kamehameha II ended the taboo of women and men eating separately, the first luau was created. We invite you to bring a delectable tropical treat. You’ll be greeted with a lei, and we will honor our own Lilinoe, the ancient Goddess of the Mists.
Please plan to join us for the Congregation Meeting following worship on January 21. We will vote in the 2018 budget, receive a progress report from the Endowment Fund, vote on the Care for Creation covenant, and vote on the ‘Creation Justice’ designation. Many exciting things are happing in our church, you won’t want to miss this meeting. See you there!
Our Men’s Ministry breakfast is an easy and fun way to get to know some of the other guys in the church. Once a month we gather at a local restaurant for breakfast to chat and deepen our relationships in a casual setting. We hope that you will plan on joining us. Restaurant: TBD. Questions? Contact Daryl Foelske.

We tend to think of Mary as meek and mild. But the truth is she is anything but. It took her a few minutes to adjust to the news that she was going to be the means by which God would enter the world in a new way. But once she got over the shock, she boldly stepped forward with prophetic power. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate the 3rd Sunday of Advent with fearless joy at the coming of Christ at Christmas. #FearNot #Joy.

When Joseph learned Mary was pregnant his first thought was to “dismiss her quietly.” He didn’t want to expose her to unnecessary shame. But he didn’t want to marry her either. Then an angel came to him in a dream and said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife.” This is week two of our Advent series #FearNot, with this week’s focus on peace. Where do we find it? How do we achieve it? What does peace look and feel like? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on finding peace in the midst of change, turmoil, and unrest. #FearNot #Peace
We are happy to announce that Laura Stephenson has received a call to serve in an Episcopal Church in Grand Junction. We will have a time in our worship service on December 17 to give thanks for the gifts of ministry Laura and Bevin have shared with us, and send them on their way to new opportunities. More information is forthcoming about Laura’s Ordination Service in Boulder later this month.

Advent is a time of hopeful expectations as we await the rebirth of the Christ Child at Christmas. Over the next few weeks, we’ll reflect together on the importance of our faith in the face of events and situations that might cause us to be fearful. Again and again throughout our scriptures, we hear the words “Do not be afraid.” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on why we can still have hope in midst of troubling and frightening times. #FearNot #Hope
