    Unconditional means..., with Rev. Dr. Steven Koski. Series: Standalone Services A Spacious Christianity, First Presbyterian Church of Bend, Oregon. Scripture: Luke 15.1-4; Acts 10 -11.
    Unconditional means without conditions: A worship service celebrating PRIDE week. We stand in solidarity with our siblings and the LGBTQ+ community as they overcome judgment, fear, hate, and declare their pride and who they are, and who they love. We celebrate that our remarkable diversity is a gift. Affirming that we are not fully who God intends us to be as a community without welcoming, including and celebrating the presence of those who are so often told they don’t belong.

    We call this kind of faith “Spacious Christianity.” We don’t ask anyone to sign creeds or statements of belief. The life of faith is about a way of being in the world and a faith that shows itself in love.

    Jesus and Airplane Mode, with Becca Ellis.

    Jesus and Airplane Mode, with Becca Ellis.

    Jesus and Airplane Mode, with Becca Ellis. A Spacious Christianity, First Presbyterian Church of Bend, Oregon. Scripture: Matthew 6:27; 34.
    This Sunday we will consider the ways that Jesus embodied presence in his life and ministry, the way he was present to the pain around him and the questions lingering behind his disciples eyes. Among the many questions he asked to his followers, we find an invitation to wonder – how would we live if we truly believed we were exactly what was needed to heal our world?
    About the Series, Freeing Jesus: Jesus asks his followers, “Who do you say that I am?” This worship will ask us that same question inviting us to see Jesus through six different lenses. Many struggle identifying themselves as Christian because of the disappointments and disillusionment with the church. Instead, they say they are followers of Jesus. This series will seek to free Jesus from the constraints that are often placed on Jesus that we might renew our hope in the Jesus we have known, the one we know now, and the one who will meet us ahead on the road.

    Jesus as Presence, with Rev. Kally Elliott.

    Jesus as Presence, with Rev. Kally Elliott. A Spacious Christianity, First Presbyterian Church of Bend, Oregon. Scripture: Psalm 139, Matthew 28:20, John 20.
    This week, we wonder together how God could possibly be present in the devastation of this world, and our own lives. We will start with Psalm 139, the beautiful prayer and testimony that speaks of God’s intimate presence. There is nowhere God will not go to be with us. We hope you will join us this Sunday at 10am.

    Jesus as Way, with Rev. Dr. Steven Koski.

    Jesus as Way, with Rev. Dr. Steven Koski.

    Jesus as Way, with Rev. Dr. Steven Koski. A Spacious Christianity, First Presbyterian Church of Bend, Oregon. Scripture: John 14:6.
    Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father, except through me”. That verse has used to judge and condemn others. Can we free Jesus from that box? Is it possible to understand that verse in a different way? A way that might actually free Jesus, and even free us.
