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 continue our Lenten sermon series called Konmari for the Soul. P. Sam will sharing the message entitled:

“DISCARD” based on Luke 18:18-30

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!



We are relatively speaking a wealthy group of people. Our homes are filled with an abundance of material possessions that we don’t even use. And for that matter, we have homes that we take for granted! Following Jesus is not about simple platitudes and lip service. Following Jesus is about the willingness to let go of earthly possessions for heavenly treasures. Part of the KONMARI method of tidying up is letting go of the “stuff” that you really don’t need. As we begin to tidy up our souls, we will need to practice the spiritual discipline of letting go, throwing away, getting rid of… all those things that hinder us from experiencing the full Kingdom of God. The bottom line is that between our material possessions and our sinful practices, there are a lot of things that we need to discard. What do you need to give up in order to follow Jesus?
