Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. There is a broad variety of yoga schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Among the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga and Rāja yoga. We provide a simple and easy form of Yoga to help and advance your healthy living.
Every Sunday we gather to delve deep into the Bible. With the help of several leaders, we study the cultural, theological and exegetical significance of the Biblical texts. We enter into deep discussion and prayer so that we understand the underlying meaning of the Words we read. This study helps us to put the Word of God into our everyday life.
Faith is solidified with reason and reason is confirmed by faith. it is a journey towards each other. Some of the most difficult questions in the Bible always will remain hard to crack and difficult to understand. It does not mean we should not ask them and be puzzled by them. We all have questions for which no one has answers for. In the end, we are on a journey. To be able to ask a question is a necessary step to lasting and unchangeable faith.
In this class, anyone can bring up any question that they are struggling with or questions that one thinks are too important to ignore. No question out there is silly or simple. No question is too small or too big to shake up God. God is a big enough to contain the questions that sometimes unsettles us. True faith begins when true and deep questions exhaust.
Fellowship around the Table is the core of our worship. We celebrate and empower one another in the presence of Christ at the altar each week. We come together to sing, to pray, to praise and thank God for the blessings of everyday life. We believe in the grace given to each one of us to make a difference in the lives of people we meet. We put our faith through practice at worship.
Holy Eucharist is the celebration of the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples in the upper room before Jesus was crucified. Jesus returned to the table that was set many times after He was resurrected. We celebrate and commemorate this event each Sunday as was commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ. We come together to utter the words of institution and celebrate the moments of death, and resurrection of Jesus from the dead. We celebrate Holy Eucharist as a Table Fellowship instructed and instituted by Jesus himself.
We follow the Book of Common Prayer as our guide to make this celebration orderly and meaningful. A printed bulletin is provided for our guest to make worship easier to follow. With four readings from the Bible, we read the Holy Scriptures more often and extensively on a regular basis. By celebrating the goodness and kindness of one another at the Table of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist we find ways to serve one another in joy.
Hymns are taken from Theologically sound and spiritually meaningful texts, while we bring in new and contemporary music to add flavor to our unique blend of worship. We take great pride in making our faith journey an integrated life founded on Scriptures, Tradition, and Reason.
