She was a totally ordinary, simple, young unremarkable girl in her mid-teens. At least, that is what you’d think watching her life. But as we dig a little deeper some amazing things come to light.
This past Sunday we read Luke 1:39-56 and saw some of the strength and depth and vision of Mary’s faith in God. She is called out by God to a task that’ll land her in all sorts of trouble (which, by the way, is often how it happens down through time to called-out-people; God’s way is not the simplest way).
We watched how she responded, and what sorts of supports the Lord put into place for her to survive….. actually, more than that – to THRIVE. And this got us to look at our own lives and the supports that God puts into place for us to survive….. and to thrive.

We’d also love to have you join us live for worship.
We gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up. Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride!
