WE NO LONGER MEET IN THE HARLEY DAVIDSON CHAPEL
new location - New Schedule.
– IMPORTANT NEWS –
We are now an integral part of the Church of the Beatitudes, and nucleus of a new
11:30 service on Sundays.
Join us every Sunday in our new location on the campus of Beatitudes Church at 7th Avenue and Glendale Ave.
This Sunday (Sept. 1) , we welcome as guest speaker, ellie hutchinson with message, "Spokes of Love", touching on the common ground of theology and justice.
ellie (and yes, she prefers not to capitalize her name) currently serves as Community Outreach and Development Coordinator at First Church UCC Phoenix. Founding director of la Phoenikera Writers' Guild (laPWG), she brings a wealth of experience as an educator, community collaborator, writer, grass-roots organizer, and theologian.
A Church For The Rest Of Us?
Via de Cristo Faith Community is a warm and inclusive, theologically progressive, Christian gathering, open to inter-tradition dialogue and exploration .
Our community embodies a premise that differs from most. Though we share a Christian heritage, we acknowledge that an active, inner faith walk is an evolving thing. Accordingly, we don't gather around specific sets of beliefs, creeds or doctrines. Our common experience is thoughtful and inquiring spiritual lives and understandings that are still evolving, …often quite individual in specifics.
So our common ground now lies not so much in what we believe, but in affirming a simpler, more heart-experienced and compassionate way of being in this world, "...acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God." [cf. Micah 6:8].
Walking together with our deeper spiritual conversations and questions, we explore, ruminate and learn, enriched by the sharing of our individual and varied faith journeys.
Individually and in community, we draw the circle larger to make a difference in the troubles of our world, making lives a little easier, ...making futures a little brighter for some who are disadvantaged, homeless, or refugees.
We invite you to walk a little way (or a lot!) with us, exploring the many ways in which this Via de Cristo, ...this Way of Christ, ...can come to life in our hands and feet, ...in our own time and place.
