At the beginning of February, we continue exploring and discovering ways to move beyond our limitations … to find new beginnings and to be better than we were before.
In January, we explored how we can go beyond our beliefs, our horizons, and boundaries. Feb. 4th, we explore going beyond chaos, and on Feb. 11th, going beyond our fears. February also marks the beginning of Lent – the days of preparation leading to Easter. For many of us, Lent has been a time of “giving up” something. Rather than just “giving up” in Lent, this season, we are invited to consider all that Jesus is “up to” and all that he asks us to be “up to” in his name. What pursuits are we up to in our lives that call us to be our best selves, and our best selves as the church?
What R U Up 2?
February 14 – Ash Wednesday – 7 pm worship – “Store Up” the things that bring us closer to God.

March 4 – “Raise Up” – How might we raise up as the Body of Christ and be a holy dwelling place of God in the world?
March 11 – “Light Up” the world through our lives so that the world might see the hope it yearns for.
