given to the glory of God in loving memory of William and Marlis Wilkinson, and their son, Jamie.


Incarnation

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. (John 3:16)

A river of grace, in blues and greens, flows down from a large, but faint, figure of the Father giving his son to the world in the lower right – Christmas.

Resurrection

I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live. (John 11:25)

Before the Easter sunrise is a butterfly taking flight. Christ is rising from the tomb of the chrysalis – the bloody rags of crucifixion falling to the earth.

The Red Sea – Baptism

God’s Spirit moved over the waters, creating heaven and earth. God led Moses and the children of Israel through the Red Sea, out of bondage into freedom. As we enter and leave worship, we are reminded that we were re-created in Holy Baptism, released from bondage to sin and continue on our life’s journey with the freedom to love and serve.

Music

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary.
Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with
the lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine
and dance; praise him
with strings and pipe!
(Psalm 150)

given to the glory of God in loving memory of Robert Register

Communion

The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? (1 Corinthians 10:16)

given to the glory of God in loving memory of Robert Register

The congregation in praise of God is depicted through vocalists singing, a cellist playing, a tambourine celebrating, and handbells ringing.


The Place of the People:  This is the space for the people of God to gather around the Word and Meal of God. Seating around the sanctuary is a physical reflection of our understanding of the Church as “the communion of saints” and “the priesthood of all the baptized.” The central nave and the two side transepts are equal in size. The space will not allow us to think of ourselves as an audience or as observers in the liturgy, but it requires us to understand that every member of the congregation is an actor in the drama of salvation that we rehearse every time we gather.


Tau Cross and Easter Garden

given to the glory of God in loving memory of Riki Hoppes

Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” (John 20:15, 16a)
