We are gathering for in-person services inside our sanctuary at 9:45am. Masks are required for all participants, including children ages two and older. Our service is typically an hour long. Following the service we often have a time for Sunday school arts and play for the children, and book discussion for the adults. Recently we read together We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People’s Campaign, and The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr. For Lent this year we plan to read and discuss Good Enough, a devotional by Katie Bowler.
We talk, sing, share a story for the children in attendance, listen to a message, and share prayer requests with one another. We hear a message from our pastor Gwen Groff about three Sundays a month. Other weeks we hear from congregation members and guest speakers. Sometimes we have a singing service, or a sharing service.
Please join us.
Our yard has a playground for children to play on during coffee hour after the service. In the warmer months, you’ll find a labyrinth mowed into the back lawn for walking and contemplation.
Throughout the calendar year we also hold special services for…
