our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday at EMBRACE as we continue our new series entitled SHARE: Spreading the Good News in Discouraging Times. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:

“Pay It Forward” based on Luke 10:25-37

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!


“Pay It Forward”

At the heart of evangelism is the desire and intentionality of being a blessing to others. Sharing Jesus in words is one thing, but the Gospel compels us to live out our evangelism in good deeds. The parable of the Good Samaritan sets a high bar for what it means to love God and love people. Be a neighbor to someone who is in need. Go out of your way to be a blessing. Don’t calculate what you will get back in return. Pay it forward, and you begin to live the Jesus way. We should not be praying for God’s blessings if we can’t be an answer to someone else’s prayer. Blessings flow forwards. Truth is that for most of us, we have so much more that we can share than we actually understand or realize. Living as a blessing is living in an abundant mindset.
