This Sunday's Service: "Ascension Sunday"
This Sunday is "Ascension Sunday," which marks the end of the Easter Season. We'll hear the gospel story of Jesus's ascension. His disciples watch in astonishment as Jesus is enveloped in a cloud and lifted up into the heavens. Did Jesus really defy the Law of Gravity? What really happened that day, and what does it mean for our lives today?
Join us this Sunday at 10 AM (either in-person or streaming live online) as we explore Jesus's ascension, as well as our own spiritual ascensions to a place of higher consciousness. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black

Last Sunday's Service
On Mother's Day Sunday, we explored "God as Mother." Most of us grew up being told that God was a man, our Heavenly Father. How would our world be different if we viewed God not as an authoritative, judgmental male, but as our gentle, nurturing Heavenly Mother? Please enjoy last Sunday's service, when we continued to explore the question: Who is God?
Message: Pastor Sal Sapienza. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler
