Life often gets crazy and hectic. We find ourselves looking for a time and place to unwind, relax, and recharge. That's what Refuel is about! It's not another program or event to add to your calendar, it's a place to connect with God and with each other in a way that refuels your empty tank each week. For links to previous weeks sessions, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
Lenten Series: Henri Nouwen
March 27 & April 3
Lent is a season when we often focus on prayer, simple living, and spiritual disciplines as we mark our journey with Jesus to the cross, and ultimately to the empty tomb. There is no better time to explore the ideas of the late Henri J.M. Nouwen, a Catholic priest, educator, and deeply compassionate minister. Join Rev. Casey Orr at Refuel for a lecture/discussion/whatever-you-want-to-call-it on the spiritual life as Henri Nouwen imagined it in his book, Reaching Out. For two weeks, we will follow his movements: from loneliness to solitude, from hostility to hospitality, from illusion to prayer.
“In the midst of a turbulent, often chaotic, life we are called to reach out, with courageous honesty to our innermost self, with relentless care to our fellow human beings, and with increasing prayer to our God.” –Henri Nouwen

Refuel on April 24
More than 90 of our members recently went on a tour of Israel led by Pastor Davis, his son Pastor Andrew, and our very own Pastor Toi. Not only was it a scenic and beautiful trip, it was also a period for spiritual reflection and building relationships. Come join Carol Bumbalough and Doug Ralls as we look at some beautiful photos of this special trip, and hear their personal reflections about this transformational experience.
