Worship Services: 

Life in the Shape of Justice

Sun, August 4, 10:30am
Worship Associates: Lauren Fritz & Terri Bridgwater

This Sunday we will explore what 'Life in the Shape of Justice' truly looks like when inspired on a personal and individual level. We'll hear about true-to-life stories from John Pavlovitz and maybe even about a few of our own!

Joyful Play

Sun, August 11, 10:30am
Rev. Sage Olnick

This Sunday we will explore Joyful Play as a spiritual practice. Even in the midst of injustice and unrest, we can have joy. 

A Living Bridge

Sun, August 18, 10:30am
Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

A desire for belonging brings many of us into spiritual community. This morning we'll consider how we can build a living bridge that allows us to be connected to each other across the generations and to something greater than ourselves. 

Hidden Good

Sun, August 25, 10:30am
Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Sometimes "the good" seems a bit hard to find. Finding it requires knowing how to look--and where to look. How are you looking for the hidden good and where are you finding it? This morning's service includes a "Bag Blessing" (bring you backpack, satchel, purse, tote, or wallet) as we begin a new church and, for some, a new school year.

Seeking a Picnic Team Leader

June 18, 2019
Are you (or you and a church friend) willing to head up the church picnic team? There are plenty of people who love to help, but we need a team leader or co-leaders to organize this church community event. If you are interested, please contact the church office to get started assembling a team of volunteers, scheduling the picnic, and making plans for Fall 2019 or Spring 2020.
