December 1, 2013: An All-Church Meeting and Wreath-making (No worship service today) The Parish Committee and the Board of Trustees requests the privilege of your presence at an All-Church meeting to review and discuss our current State-of-Affairs. This is a prelude to winter meetings to establish a 3-year strategic plan. We will then share a potluck brunch as we decorate the wreaths that we will sell at the Chuirch Fair on December 7. We hope you can attend!.

Happy Birthday, Beethoven! Two hundred and forty-three years ago, tomorrow, one of the most gifted musicians to ever grace this planet was born.

If you're feeling overwhelmed by your personal challenges, struggles, or responsibilities, you don't want to miss this service!

Chalice Circle Sunday Please join us this morning for an inspiring worship service of beautiful music, readings for reflection, and provocative conversation around a topic/theme that is chosen by today's facilitator. Coffee and conversation to follow in the Webster Room, downstairs.
All services begin at 10 a.m. and are followed by a coffee hour social downstairs in the Webster Room. Children and youth are invited to enroll in our Religious Education (RE) program which is held during Sunday services. Children and youth are part of the service for the opening rituals and then are "sung out" by the congregation to their own worship and education programs. They gather again with the adults during the coffee hour social. On occasion we hold inter-generational services where the children and youth stay for the full service with the adults.
