Weekly Update: Calligraphy Class, Mom's Book Study & Summer BBQs!

In our cultural context, we most often view music as performance—songs sung by “real” musicians presented to our liking. But music can be far more than that myopic American experience.

As Christians, we gather each week on Sunday mornings to worship our God—in part through song. Given our time and place, we can default to thinking of this church music as performance, simply following along with the band. Or, perhaps worse, we think of singing songs to God as performing for him. May it not be. 

Have you ever considered our time of gathered singing to be participation in the life of Christ? That our time singing is a united expression of agreement that Christ is our head? That our harmonies manifest the joined muscles and bones, the bonded thoughts and emotions of the Jesus?

Our oneness in the body of Christ is realized in flesh and blood during our time of worship together, and perhaps most vividly as we sing. The lyrics and sounds may be meaningful and may excite our emotions, but they are not the end. No, we sing to participate in Christ.

-Pastor Wes

THIS COMING SUNDAY

Because the Christian God is not a lonely God, but rather a communion of three persons, faith leads human beings into the divine communion.
— Miroslav Volf

THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE:
THE TRIUNE LIFE IN CHRIST

1 Corinthians 1:30-31
Pastor Morgan Gagne

The life of faith is not ours to live according to personal whim. It is rather the very life of Christ being made alive in us. It is his finished and perfected life taking root in our souls and bodies so that it sprouts from our dirt and bears the fruit of love. Receiving Christ, then, is receiving the very life of God. All of him consuming all of us.
