What to Expect

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" - Psalm 122:1

Sunday Mornings

Each week, we are invited into the Divine drama…the story of God and God’s people! We gather as a diverse body, united in Christ through the power and fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

As we gather, we encounter the revelation of our Triune God (Father, Son & Holy Spirit) through the Word (Holy Scripture), the sacraments (Baptism & Communion), prayer, confession, creeds, music, and the arts.This encounter with the Living God invites us to respond both individually and corporately in praise, in service, and in mission.

At Vriesland, we value our identity as a people deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of the historical Christian Church AND we value the unique and dynamic ways that God is moving among us in our current culture and context.Therefore, our passion and purpose is to cultivate Biblically faithful, corporately authentic, and culturally relevant services of worship.

Sermon Series - Pursuing Wisdom

Sunday, July 23
Pastor Blaine Newhouse
Scripture: Proverbs 6;6-8, Romans 12:18. I Corinthians13:13
Message: 'Taking Intiative'
Synopsis - God longs for us to do life well!  God wants the very best for our marriages, for our families, for our friendships with others.  God's desire is that we would learn the value of managing anger, cultivating compassion and deepening our commitment to truth and justice.  We can see that God wants these things for us because God holds out for us a gift called wisdom.

Definition - Wisdom is the God given capacity to draw from our knowledge, gifting and life experience so that we are able to do life and faith well.
We will be focusing our study primarily on the book of Proverbs as well as other texts from the Hebrew wisdom tradition - Psalms, Ecclesiastes
Topics will include Pursuing Wisdom in:
Managing Anger
Doing Good
