What a wonderful way to enrich your summer!

All are Welcome

Three fabulous studies including worship and music with some new & old friends!

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18, The Message (MSG)

We have known and felt what it is like when “things are falling apart on us.” We have experienced a great unraveling that has shifted, quite literally, everything.

Could there be, as 2 Corinthians put it, “far more here than meets the eye”?

Mission u, like many activities in our lives, has moved online. While virtual, we are still creating spaces for spiritual community, lifelong friendships, lessons that change us and our communities, and spiritual practices that arrive when we need them most. In a time when it looks like things are falling apart on us, God’s grace is still unfolding and life is being made new.

Indeed: There’s far more here than meets the eye. Will you join us?

At our upcoming three virtual Mission u events we will examine the culture of violence that impacts children in and out of schools, and how we as God’s people, can work to understand the issues and struggles facing our marginalized communities & people of color. We will also learn how to deepen our moral witness and respond faithfully.

Our 2021 DSC virtual Mission u will offer the following studies. ALL are welcome! Invite your family & friends!
