". . .the crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.  They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, 'Hosanna!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!' "   - John 12: 12–13  NIV

Let us worship together as we begin this holiest week of our faith.

A View from the Underside

Tue, April 7, 7 pm, Worship & Arts Center

Al Staggs brings the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German pastor, theologian, anti-Nazi dissident, to the stage. The audience is brought into the prison cell where Bonhoeffer awaits execution and listens to his struggles with evil, injustice, and God. 

"When I watch Al Staggs as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I am confronted by the deepest moral questions of what it means to be a witness and how I am using my life." -Bill Moyers
