Dreams and Visions is delighted to welcome Karen González, author of “The God Who Sees” as the preacher for our July Second Sunday gathering.

González explores the stories of immigrants and refugees in the Bible, including Hagar, Joseph, Ruth and Jesus. She’ll lead us in better understanding immigration as a central theme of scripture, how we can welcome immigrants and speak out about the injustices of our own immigration system, all to better follow Jesus, our “Refugee Savior.”

We’ll also sing, pray, and connect with one another at this soulful, spirit-filled gathering.

Learn more about Karen and order her book!

Second Sunday Gathering: "From Every Nation"

Second Sunday Gathering: "From Every Nation"

  • 3400 Norman Avenue Baltimore, MD, 21213 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Every second Sunday of the month, Dreams and Visions gathers for worship.

June's gathering, "From Every Nation” is a celebration of Pentecost! Often thought of as "the birthday of the church," on Pentecost we tell the story of the Holy Spirit descending with tongues of fire, allowing people from every nation to hear and understand each other, even though they spoke different languages.

The Christian church's beginnings are multicultural! How can we know each other across language and borders, especially when fear of the "outsider" is rampant in our nation?

At this service, we will hear Pastor Jean Paul Kisuku tell the story of his journey immigrating from the Congo to the United Sates, and tell us about the church he pastors, Mountain of God, which worships in five different languages!

Second Sunday Gathering: Chosen Family

  • 3400 Norman Avenue Baltimore, MD, 21213 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Every second Sunday of the month, Dreams and Visions gathers for worship.


May’s gathering, "Chosen Family,” is about leaving family, seeking family, and the family that God creates.

For many in the Queer community, being loved and accepted by family isn’t a given. So Queer kindred create families of their own, parenting each other, loving each other, and choosing each other to rely on.

Mother’s Day is a good moment to explore what makes a family, and share with honesty about the damage families can do, and the love families can give.

We’ll explore stories in the bible of Jesus rejecting and accepting chosen family, and explore how God calls us to a new family through the metaphor of adoption.

3:30pm + Doors Open for Snacks and Set Up

April’s gathering, "These Holy Days," will be a walk through the events of Holy Week.

Every second Sunday of the month, Dreams and Visions gathers for worship.


March’s gathering, "We Return," will engage contemplative practices. In the Christian calendar, the season of Lent is a time to pare down, simplify, and return to God. Letting harmful habits go, or adding a spiritual practice are a way of reconnecting with the source of love and life.

Home Gathering

If you're interested in connecting to other congregants and exploring your faith in a more intimate setting, Dreams and Visions is launching a House Church!

A House Church is a small gathering

in a congregant's home. Group members share their highs and lows from the week, reflect on the scripture passage and theme from our last gathering, and pray together.

Congregants Ben and Cait have offered to host and lead our first House Church at their home in Lauravile. You may have seen Ben playing the cajon at worship, and Cait playing Joseph at the Queer Christmas pageant! Plus their two kiddos, running/crawling around!

Sunday, February 24

Lauraville, Northeast Baltimore

3pm

Write Ben and Cait for the address and to express interest!

Second Sunday Gathering: Body and Soul

Second Sunday Gathering: Body and Soul

Why have spirituality and the body been so separate through the ages? And what does it look like to bring them back into communion?

At February's service, we’ll explore what it means to have a body, and how our sexuality, gender identity connect to our lives of faith. Though we may have been taught that our bodies are sources of shame or our desire pushes us farther from God, the Bible is filled with stories and poetry that say differently.

Second Sunday Gathering: We are Called

Every second Sunday of the month, Dreams and Visions gathers for worship.

*This gathering has been reschedule from January 13, because of snow!*


January's gathering, "We Are Called" will explore how God calls each of us in different ways. How do we decide what to DO with our lives, when the world needs justice-makers and each of us needs to stay healthy and grounded? When the world's need feels overwhelming, where do we put our energies? And do we respond out of duty, desire, guilt, or gratitude?
