Prayer: We gather together to pray to God, using ancient prayer and psalm, always mindful of the needs of our present community, our world, and one another.
Song: Our worship is filled with a diverse array of music. You are invited to add your voice to songs that express every mood, from contemplative meditation to exuberant praise.
Word: We listen for the Word of God in preaching that draws on the Christian Scriptures, contemporary scholarship, and relevance to today’s world.
Table: Communion is at the heart of our worship and perhaps our fullest expression of wholeness in practice. As Jesus welcomes us all to the table, we practice open communion, inviting all to share in the Lord’s Supper.

|The Bridge/Kemp Class||Where: Kemp Classroom, Upstairs|
|Taught by: Alan Cates & Scot Crosslin||Time: 9:30 AM-10 AM|
|Currently, the Bridge/Kemp class is studying “Spiritual Disciplines.” Designed to explore both the origins of traditional Christian spiritual disciplines, this course seeks to foster intentional discipleship. We’ll examine the following topics, including sacred time/space, confession, prayer/meditation, worship music/expression, tithing/giving, holy community/fellowship, holy scripture/study, and the liturgical year/calendar. Taught by Alan Cates and Scot Crosslin, the class roots its discussions in sacred texts and discusses material to strengthen corporate and individual faith and discipleship both inside and outside of the church.|
Koinonia Sunday School Class
|Collette Jones, President||Where: Koinonia Room|
|Taught by various members||Time: 9:30 AM-10 AM|
|A diverse group of people from various faith backgrounds, who are open to exploring the Christian faith and developing their understanding of what it means to be a committed and serving Christian. Studies chosen by the class include Biblical studies, books by religious authors about current and classic Christian issues. Class time emphasizes class discussion, careful listening, and faith that the Spirit speaks through the words and experiences of each of us. In January and February 2023, we will explore Lore Ferguson Wilbert’s book A Curious Faith: The Questions God Asks, We Ask, and We Wish Someone Would Ask Us. Beginning with the first Sunday of Lent, February 26 and continuing through April 2, we will focus on Richard Rohr’s book Falling Upward, A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. Visitors are always welcome!|
The Mosaic Class
|Taught by Zach Atchley|
|Where: Faith Collective Room||Time: 9:30 AM-10: 30 AM|
|Mosaic is a conversational exploration of contemporary religious and spiritual thought leaders and their works as seen through the lens of current events. As the name suggests, the composition of the class reflects an openness to and desire for a diversity of theological perspectives. We meet in the downstairs Faith Collective Room each Sunday from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Beginning Sunday, January 22 and through the entire month of February, Mosaic will be watching and discussing “How to Read the Bible through a Love Centered Lens,” a six-part video series with biblical studies scholar and former pastor Jared Byas. His message – “The proper goal of reading our Bibles isn’t to get it right; it’s to love. Thinking deeply about theology and how to interpret the Bible is important, but love matters more.”
For any questions you have about Mosaic, please contact Zach Atchley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
