Include us in your mid-week plan, and experience the growth that comes from a mid-week connection with your church family.

‘Bold Love and Boundless Compassion’ finds expression in countless ways in the Christian life. Lives lived in abiding harmony with God share bold love with God, with each other, with self, with the world. Lives lived within God’s grace and mercy extend boundless compassion to stranger and estranged, the last, least, and lost. But we must practice these things together in order to embody them in our moment-by-moment lives!
Wednesday nights this year will be like the huddle on the football field in the middle of a practice — pausing briefly in the midst of the practice of our lives to gather encouragement, knowledge, and belonging with one another before entering again the daily challenges of our life.
With the overarching frame of “Bold Love and Boundless Compassion” as our guide, we’ll unpack that theme in a series of cycles — one, seasonal, that allows us an extended lot of weeks for a deep dive into the theme, and another, weekly, that enters a four-week pattern of introduction (week 1), biblical/theological study (week 2), storytelling (week 3), and spiritual practice (week 4). Each month, we’ll supplement with a book that you can use as a resource on the topic, as well as other experiences
It will look something like this —
Bold Love + Boundless Compassion… in Relationships
September: In our Neighborhood
Book: Community: The Structure of Belonging, by Peter Block
