FEBRUARY'S THEME: Freedom & Liberation

We spent the month of January talking about all the ways that our Sexuality and Spirituality are connected.  It only seems natural that the month of February will be spent celebrating Freedom & Liberation!!! Here's what you can look forward to this month:

WORSHIP – 10:30AM

February 5 –

Start off the month with Communion and the sounds of Gospel music!

February 12 –

This week we welcome a special guest preacher, Harris Tay, executive director of the Wesley Community Center in Dayton.  Harris' passion for freedom and liberation for all people will inspire you as he shares his unique journey!

February 19 –

This Sunday, we will be blessed by the Victory Drummers, who will be leading us in several traditional West African drumming rhythms, as well as accompanying our choir.  Pastor April and Robert Caldwell will share a dialogue about our call to live in freedom.

ASH WEDNESDAY – February 22 – 6:30pm

Join us for this joint service with Maynard Avenue and North United Methodist Churches, as Pastor Lucy helps us start the season of Lent.  Lent is the 40-day season of preparation for Easter, a time of self-reflection and focus on our spiritual lives.

February 26 – FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT

Pastor April will start off our series for the season of Lent on Wholeness and the ways in which we will integrate our faith with our real lives.

 

We are still confirming dates, but also hope to have the African-American Voices Gospel Choir from OSU and the OSU Steel Pan Ensemble!  More details to come!  Hope you'll join us!

 

NEW SMALL GROUP

FAITH AND TRANSPORTATION – Thursdays at 7:30pm – starts Feb 2

This 4-week small group study is open to people of all faiths and spiritual perspectives.  Come explore how transportation fits into God’s design for our faith journeys, bodies, communities and places of worship. Because this topic has no precedent, we’ll create as we go and offer another 4–6 week study later this year. Please join us!  Led by Meredith Joy, executive director of Yay Bikes!
