No Place Like Home–July 8, 2018

As our sermon series on Community continues, Pastor Judith Reedy preaches about building community–as disciples are sent to a challenging world to heal and cast out demons.  The power and authority that comes with following Jesus gathers people to the good and to the whole, even as those closest to us may question where that power comes from.  (Mark 6:1-13)

A Strange Freedom–July 1, 2018

Pastor Judith Reedy continues Grace’s exploration of community with the powerful story of Jairus’s daughter and the woman with a flow of blood (Mark 5:21-43)–interrupters to the sense of community embraced by synagogue and disciples during Jesus’s ministry. Jesus’s response to both interrupters challenges the fears deeply embedded in his society, and invites the church to be an anchor for all individuals who freely seek community. Includes Cassie Evans leading the congregation in “I Woke Up This Morning with My Mind.”
