our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God
our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves
our hope is that the best is yet to come
Join us this Sunday at 11:30 AM as we continue in our current sermon series, “ENGAGE”! Pastor Sam will be preaching on “Breaking Down Dividing Walls.”
Come worship, meet friends and be challenged to live a life of impact!
We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.
EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.
We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.
We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.
EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.
We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.
We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.
EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.
Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.
We’ll see you this Sunday!
The world is messed up. Things are not the way they should be. We can just sit passively, even watch with disappointment and anger, or we can engage with the foundations of our faith and the potential for what God calls us to be and do.
This week, Pastor Sam will be preaching on “The Radically Inclusive Heart of God”.
The Kingdom of God is a lot larger than we make it out to be. There is always room at the table. When we look at how Jesus welcomed the outcasts and misfits of society, we see a vision for a radically inclusive heart of God. Unfortunately, for many, the church has been a place not of welcome but exclusion. In this sermon, we will engage in conversations about how to reflect God’s heart of welcome and acceptance.
