White Privilege: Let’s Talk – A Resource for Transformational Dialogue

Thanksgiving Lessons & Carols

Now thank we all our God, with hearts and hands and voices! Doesn’t that hymn just feel like Thanksgiving? We have so much to be grateful for. But in our troubled world, gratitude doesn’t always come easily. On Sunday, November 26, we will sing our gratitude while we explore the complexity of Thanksgiving through a service of Lessons and Carols. Poetry, hymns,…

New Year’s Eve Worship

On New Year’s Eve, we think of sparkle: sequins and confetti, sparkling beverages and dazzling fireworks. Before your evening festivities, come to church for another kind of sparkle! Just as a bright star led the Wise Men to Jesus, God comes to us as a bright star, lighting our path forward. As we prepare to usher in 2018, we may be wondering…
