Current Sermon Series

Under Construction

As we move into our third century as Foundry Church, major changes to our church building will get underway in order to more faithfully be in ministry with and for others. But it is not only our building that is “Under Construction.” Our personal lives of faith, our own discipleship, and the life of the Foundry family itself is always growing, changing—being “remodeled” by life and by the Holy Spirit. This year we endeavor to explore the tensions between “being” and “becoming,” stability and growth, boundaries and inclusion, and more. Our faith affirms that God loves us just as we are—AND loves enough to keep encouraging us to grow into the fullness of who God calls us to be. Join us for this journey as we all try to become a bit more human and as we seek to build true covenant community together.


Renovation Realities

Even the best-laid plans cannot anticipate all that life will bring. Hidden costs, surprises discovered along the way, difficult people, and other unknowns will present challenges to moving forward. Sometimes, the longed-for vision begins to seem out of reach. Our Lenten journey will confront us with the realities we face as we try to be and become more free, more whole, more Christ-like.
