Why do we do that?

September 10 – October 1

People often comment that we are not like other churches. And in this four-week series, we will explore why we do some of the things we do. We will examine the distinctive values and practices of our community, and how they fit into the 2000-year history of Christ’s Church. We will ask questions such as: Why do we gather to worship, serve, and pursue justice together? Why do we consider acceptance, vulnerability and inclusion so important? And do we really have all the answers? (Spoiler alert: no we don’t!) Together we will celebrate who we are and want to become as a community together.

Questions for reflection and discussion will be available each week for this series.

Children and youth will explore these same themes in age-appropriate ways. For more details, visit the Children and Youth page.
