Want to Listen Live or Hear Some Past Sermons?

If you are unable to visit our church on a Sunday morning, or if you would like to sample a worship service before you attend, we have two options for you. First, our Vimeo page contains videos of our weekly sermons. Second, if you want to watch us live on Sunday morning from wherever you are, click here!

Growing a Rule of Life | A Wednesday night lenten series with the Rev. Pamela Dolan

Our Lenten series is produced by the Society of St. John the Evangelist and will focus on God as the Chief Gardener of our souls. We will use a tool from monastic spirituality called a ‘Rule of Life’ to explore and cultivate our relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation. Just as stakes and lattices nurture the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being.

There are two ways to  participate. First, join us on Wednesday nights, every week or as often as you can make it. We will engage with readings and conversation that will lead each of us to a clearer understanding of our own values and commitments.  There is no homework and no cost to participate. If you require childcare, please let Pamela know.  Second, whether or not you are here on Wednesdays, you are invited to sign up for a daily video from the Society at ssje.org/ssje/growrule. The video series and the weekly program are complementary—you can do either one or both, and either way you will get something great out of this spiritual practice.

Join us to dig deep and dream big about ways to live into a more abundant life with Christ.
