Message: Patience
 
NIV Colossians 3:12-14 12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

 
Affirmation of Faith (In place of Call to Worship)
 
We believe in God, known as Creator, Son and ever-present Spirit. 
 
We believe God gave birth to the church with the gift of the Holy Spirit - stirring the disciples and us to tell the Good News, heal the sick, feed the hungry, take care of the poor, welcome the stranger and be a community of forgiveness and joy.

We believe the Spirit is still moving, still acting, still turning the world upside down with love. 
 
We believe the Spirit gives us different gifts to use, all for building up the church and showing the world a community of compassion and wisdom.

We believe the Holy Spirit will not be contained in dull, lifeless forms, but surprises us and empowers us to do new things, to risk loving, to venture boldly into God's world.

We believe in the church, wind-powered, fire-tinged and Spirit-filled.
