We can find ancient and modern wisdom in the book of Ecclesiastes. This book affirms a time and a season for everything. During this worship series, we reflect on seasons of ministry around All Saints Sunday and our Change the World Day. We also examine issues of life and faith through the lens of the scripture, and in our own time and place.
We all struggle to make sense of life in the midst of contradictions, broken relationships, and experiences that sometimes leave us feeling that life has no meaning. How do we find enduring meaning in God’s purpose for our lives, and how do we continue to feel his presence in all the seasons of our lives? If we put our trust in God, who is bigger than any of the details of our lives and loved us so much he sent his Son to us, we can rest assured that God will not leave us to work out things on our own.
We are all in need of community, no matter where we are on the journey called life. Church can be that community for us. And we can all help each other through the rough patches, even as we celebrate the joys.
Join us on these Sundays in November as we celebrate the times of our lives, in the loving presence of Christ:
All Saints Day, November 1: A Time to Be Born, A Time to Die (Dr. Dave Summers)
November 8: A Time to Embrace, A Time to Refrain from Embracing (Rev. Eve Williams)

Advent begins on Sunday, November 29, which is a Family Sunday (no Sunday School classes for elementary age children; take your children to worship).
