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.

02-17 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.

Here is the promised update of progress on inside construction.

Look at that view into the Great Room/Multipurpose Room from the second floor!  And speaking of the second floor, here is a view of the offices for various organizations.

You can see the footings for the interior walls. Everything is ready for the concrete over-pour for the second story floor of the hub, happening this week!

02-11 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.

These are cold winter days for construction work! .

We won't see a lot of dramatic changes on the outside of the building now that windows are in and the outside is insulated. But take a look at the firewall now: notice the difference? The concrete has been covered over with insulation and wrap.

Most work is happening inside these days. We are saving the pictures of the inside for next week's update. Stay tuned for some great photo shots!

Here's a different view of the Hub building. The doorway is an exit from the kitchen at the side of the building.

Visions in the Cloud – Feb 07

Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside a Building

This week we journey 'down by the river' and hear the story of an early church leader, Lydia. Her story teaches us about the gift of hospitality. How do we cross cultural, gender, religious and economic boundaries to welcome the wisdom and insight of others into our experience of faith? This was a question for the early church; this is an important question for us today in the 21st century.

This week's reading: Acts 16:6-15
