Homer, Moses, Sitting Bull, Buddha and Jesus meet for coffee

For the first Sunday in Lent, Dr. Keck will show how truth meanders through different religious traditions by using Native American spirituality, Buddhist thought and ancient Greek religion to illuminate the Biblical texts that begin this holy season. However, as Christians the truth in our own tradition is only fully expressed in the Christ himself, not by a given doctrine or teaching. Join us this Sunday for a spiritual adventure through the texts.

This Sunday, at both the 9:00am & 10:30am services, the Castle Singers & Kammerstreicher Strings from Wartburg College will lead us in worship.

Who Are We? An Old Church in a New World

Sermon Series Launching March 6th, Noon @ FP South (Scott Middle School, 2200 Pine Lake Rd)

These days many are wondering about what matters most. What they will give their life to, make time for, prioritize. What about church? Do we matter? Are we going to be part of what people around us give their life to, make time for, and prioritize? Yes, but only if we live into our calling, if we live into who we are! In the weeks ahead let us go on a journey to reclaim our identity as a community whose identity is rooted in an ancient faith yet committed to being in the world today, a community that is Christian, Open-Minded, Spiritual, Evolving, and Diverse. A spiritual community for today. 

Embracing the Dark

What if the dark wasn't all bad? What if it actually was how we know the light? Join Pastor Hollie Schmidt for worship online this Sunday!
