Visions in the Cloud – Easter

April 4, 2021

Easter Sunday: "Early on the first day..."

Enter the Mystery of Easter with us.

Experience the Story again of "Early on the first day"

This Easter we wonder with those first visitors to the empty tomb what new reality is dawning for us as we await a post-pandemic world. (John 20:1-18)

We will share Communion as part of our Easter celebration. Please prepare food for yourself: a piece of bread, roll, maybe a hot cross bun; and a cup of juice - perhaps grape or cranberry - or wine, with or without alcohol. We will bless the elements together with prayer and song.

Visions in the Cloud – Palm Sunday

March 28, 2021

Palm Sunday - Stones & Hosannas

Jesus said, "Even if these disciples were silent, the stones would shout out."

Inspired by a story called "The Stones Cry Out" we begin the journey of Holy Week. Join us for a special drama, song and prayer.
Bring a small stone to worship and join your voice with Creation's song, 'Hosanna! Loud Hosanna!'

Lent Week 5 : A Covenant of Hope

God has a new covenant with us, forgiving our sins. If we ask God to forgive our sins, are we prepared to forgive those who have sinned against us?
These are strange times. The past year has been a long Lenten time as we've made our way through the wilderness of this COVID pandemic.

03-17 Community Hub Update

The construction site at 140 Joyce Avenue continues to be a busy place!
Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

It's been a few weeks since we've had a peak inside the Hub building.

Progress on the apartment side includes insulation and installation of shower/bathtub fixtures.

The second story concrete floor has been poured on the Hub side and the walls are framed. The main stairway is built and the elevator lift shaft is framed, ready for installation.
Staging fills the entire multi-purpose room to enable the installation of duct work and the steel beams and framing for the room dividers above the ceiling.

We are still on schedule for August 1st occupancy!

Visions in the Cloud – Lent 4

Lent Week 4 : Covenant of Healing

These are strange times. The past year has been a long Lenten time as we've made our way through the wilderness of this COVID pandemic.

  • Where do we fix our gaze?
  • Where are we finding God - hope, life and truth - in this time we are in?

Join us this Sunday as we hear the story of a 'strange remedy' for healing. Our story is from Numbers 21:4-9, the Hebrew peoples' wilderness journey, and their reminder of God's Covenant promise.

Visions in the Cloud – Lent 3

March 7 2021

Lenten Week 3 : Covenant of Love 

The gift of the 'Ten Commandments' is a prophetic call to care for one another. (Exodus 20:1-17). Too often we've read them as some ancient rules set in stone. But what if we saw them as vision statements - touchstones - for how we might live in community? Join us this week as we re-imagine the ethical call to practice love in our world today.

Visions in the Cloud – Lent 1

February 21, 2021

This Sunday our Lenten series on covenant begins with the "Covenant of Promise" (Genesis 9:8-17). After the flood, came a rainbow, God's signature of covenant promise with all creation. After this pandemic... during this pandemic.... there is hope: God's promise is with us, even now.

Spirit Gatherings Lent-Easter

"Spring is coming! That is the promise of Lent.
The death of winter will give way to newness of life
Violence and hate will give way to love and hope for all.
It's just that spring isn't here yet.
God's new world isn't here YET..."

Join us this Lent as we hear the stories of God's Covenant Promises.
Together, we will 'bless this mess' we have made of the world
and count down the 40 days of Lent with prayer and intention.
Then we will get to work with our Creator
and be a part of God's 'new world'
promised with the Good News of Easter.
