What can we learn together? What kinds of CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY are catching fire among young adults, spiritual seekers and long-time church members?


As participants, you will:

  • Experience worship in a vital setting with new voices, inspiring leaders and opportunities for reflection.
  • Learn from the experience and spiritual commitments of presenters with deep roots in Northern CA and passion for ministry in progressive congregations.
  • Interact with leaders from other congregations: sharing ideas resources reflection and support.
  • Gain a fresh and exciting perspective on the Gospel: the good news of liberation, compassion and freedom from fear.

Blue Christmas


Blue  Christmas  Service 

Sunday, December 21st, 7:00 p.m.

For individuals and families suffering the recent or impending death of loved ones, those in crisis due to illness, unemployment, separation, family estrangement or other experiences of loss, depression, seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.), or other mental illness, the holidays can be a very isolated and lonely time, and not the “most wonderful time of the year.”

 The Blue Christmas Service offers a sanctuary of hope, solace, and comfort, as together we share God’s compassionate love for hurting people.

 This week:  “How Lutherans Interpret the Bible”  with Prof. Mark Allen Powell

  This is probably the main distinction that exists among various forms of the Christian church, especially in America. We will spend time becoming more familiar with why we view the  Bible the way we do. This will help us to better apply it’s message to our daily lives. It’s always a lively discussion!
