You're invited to spend some time in God's presence in the midst of this busy season at Space for God here at the church this Saturday. Come reflect on waiting for peace, joy, and justice with stations set up around the church 8am-1pm. Stay for the whole time or just stop by as you're able.

Get ready for a cozy fire as part of taking time to reflect on Gods peace as we wait!

You are invited to wait on God with your RAC family this Advent. This art piece in the sanctuary is designed to help us reflect on waiting with these elements:
—the word “waiting” in multiple languages
—the structure of closed doors, locked with a chain
—winter branches with buds waiting until spring to unfold
—the scripture shrouded behind the gate is Psalm 27:13-14, which ends with: “Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

You are invited to reflect on what you are waiting for and how that waiting is shaping you, and bring it before God by writing it on a ribbon and tying it to this gate. The art piece is available this Saturday 8am-1pm at Space for God, and during Sunday services until Christmas Eve. Know that as you wait on God, you also wait in community with others!

no need to bring a dish to friendsgiving, just your appetite!

Happy Veterans Day! Thank you, veterans, for your service and sacrifice. We pray for God to be at work in you as we also pray and long for the day God brings an end to all war.
"God Himself will be with them and be their God.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and there will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain,
for the former things have passed away."
--Revelation 21:3-4
