Quest: Travel as a Spiritual Act
Whether you travel far away or see your local surroundings as if for the first time,
pilgrimage has long been a spiritual practice, and “journey” a deeply-felt metaphor for our spiritual lives.
“Quest” comes from the Latin root meaning “ask, seek.” This four week worship series will encourage
us to open ourselves more fully to the curiosity and wonder, reflection and transformation that
travelers–not merely tourists–experience when they choose to immerse themselves in soul-widening adventures.

To everyone: thank you so much for my wonderful birthday Grandma Shower. I don't know how you did it, but I had no idea what was waiting for me in the Fellowship Hall. All the love, the cute and handy baby things, the flowers, the cake, the books, and the magic bag of pearls; it is a memory I will always treasure.
Steve took some wonderful pictures and we will be running some of them during worship in September.
All of you are such a blessing, and it is a joy and my privilege to be serving alongside you in our ministry!
My forever thanks!
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
