Restore us, O God!

Lent-Easter (March 5-April 16, 2017)

Based on the Year A texts of the lectionary cycle, these biblical passages call us to be restored, often in the midst of the depths of thirst, hunger, struggle and temptation. The Lenten journey is not a journey of perfection but one where we face both the limits of our humanity and our need for divine transformation.

Praying the Psalms

Season of the Psalms (July 3-September 11, 2016)

Both Christians and Jews look to the Psalms for the most profound and enduring prayers of all time. Many centuries after these texts were first sung in worship, they continue to inspire our boldest and most intimate prayers. Their humanity compels our attention. Preachers will choose Psalms that emphasize desire, praise, confession, lament, justice or thanksgiving as we gain a vision of God's intentions for the world as we sing, pray and live the Psalms.

Who do you say that I am?

Easter Season (April 3-May 8, 2016)

“Who do YOU say that I am?” Jesus asks his disciples during his ministry. His piercing question becomes WCF’s worship/sermon focus during the season of Easter, beginning April 3 and concluding May 8. The lectionary readings from the gospel of John will provide the framework to help us both communally and individually respond to this important question.

Co-Authoring the Story

Lent-Easter (Feb 10-March 27, 2016)

This year’s Lent-Easter worship/sermon theme, “Co-authoring the Story,” centers on the Great Author who calls us to co-authorship, using our very lives to shape Jesus’ ongoing kingdom story. The 40-day Lenten season (not counting Sundays) begins with Ash Wednesday (February 10) and concludes with Holy Saturday (March 27). 

Faith & Community

Jan 17-Feb 7, 2016

The worship services the next four Sundays (January 17, 24, 31 and February 7) will provide opportunities for reflection and interaction with several key issues impacting our faith and community: how to integrate truth and grace in our discernment, how to experience and apply the Word in making decisions, racism, and moving more intentionally toward Jesus. Follow-up discussion times are also scheduled during the Second Hour on January 17, 24 and 31.

Bound for Redemption

Advent-Epiphany (Nov 29, 2015-Jan 3, 2016)

“Bound for Redemption” is WCF’s Advent-Epiphany worship/sermon series this year. As followers of Jesus, we live in the paradox that we are both bound and free—on a march to freedom and redemption, but encumbered by the burden and sin we carry. God’s redemption takes us on pathways of justice, mercy, trust, love, service and inclusion (themes for the six Sundays).

Galatians–Breaking free!

September 27-November 22, 2015

September 27 begins an 8-Sunday worship/sermon series on the book of Galatians, considered the earliest letter written by the Apostle Paul. Galatians holds world-changing and transforming power for the contemporary church and all of us today. Focusing on the theme of “Breaking free,” topics such as justice, freedom, reconciliation, truth, boundaries, inclusivity, the centrality of Christ and the role of the Holy Spirit will be explored.
