Worship with us this morning – May 15

Worship with us this morning – May 15

It has been a time of loss and pain in our city. We grieve the loss of life, and our hearts break for those who were injured. As disciples of Christ, we know that evil does not and can not win. The shock, pain, sadness, and rage that swirls in our hearts may threaten to overtake us, but we are witnesses. We know the power of a God whose heart breaks, not out of weakness but out of love for God’s children. We know a God of resurrection and grace, not hate and death. Knowing this truth may not stop our pain and tears at today’s tragedy, but it does show us where to find the strength and wisdom to work through them.

As we gather this morning, both in person or online, we will put our love and faith into action. We will offer comfort, peace, and encouragement to one another as we process this act of terror. We will take our place alongside all those working to bring peace and justice in Jesus’ name to our city and God’s world.

If you need a helpful word, a place to feel not alone, somewhere to ask hard questions, or some positive people to be around, we can help. If you are hurting and need professional services we can connect you with the help you need.

We are disciples of Jesus. We are people of the resurrection. We are witnesses. We’ll be live on Facebook at 11:00, or you can watch at any time on Facebook or Youtube.  

Here is some information to help you participate if you’re joining us online:
