Join us for this special worship service in the style of Tenebrae, with gradual extinguishing of candles, accompanied by music, readings, and the sacrament of Communion.
This 5-week class is co-taught by Corey Widmer and Charles Teixeira (Pastoral Intern, Third Church and X3Leader, XXXChurch). The series presents God’s original intention for sex in a generation whose sexual expression largely disregards any religious influence. The course pays particular attention to areas of hurts and struggles in need of pastoral care and guidance: pornography, pre-marital sex, homosexuality, transgenderism, masturbation, sex and singleness, and sex in marriage. The class is a frank discussion of the issues with opportunities for open conversation. The event is intended for adults (18 or older).
Listen to the forum with writer, speaker and Professor of Biblical Studies, Wes Hill as we explore why the historic Christian sexual ethic still holds in our current context through the support of radical community.
This month's guest teacher was Percy Strickland. Percy discussed the biblical support for covenant friendships, the daily practices that make this kind of counter-cultural friendship possible, and the hope we have at Third to build a culture of covenant friendships that blesses each other and our neighbors.
This year’s Ash Wednesday service included an extended time of Prayer using the songs of Taize. These short and simple prayers are sung repeatedly and give us the opportunity to experience an intimate time in God’s presence.
Each winter, we take a month to get on the same page as a church. We combine our adult Sunday discipleship classes and study an issue together that has bearing on how we live our lives as Christ-followers--no matter what age or stage of life we find ourselves in.

Do you wonder: Why do I keep responding that way? Where did that reaction come from? Why don’t I have at least one person in my life that I feel I can be completely honest with? How can I be a change agent within my spheres of influence? How can the skills, abilities and experiences of my life be leveraged to benefit others? If any of these questions has ever crossed your mind then you will find the retreat worth being a part of.
