Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: "Sometimes You Need a Story to Survive" with an Ingathering Water Ceremony by Rev. Colin Bossen, minister

Sunday, September 17, 10:00 AM

The stories we tell about ourselves help to define us. How are these stories created? How do they suggest what is possible? In this service, we'll explore how our stories have served us in the past and when it might be time to create new stories.

Bring water collected from places near and far during the Summer to the first service of our new church year.

musician: Stephan Arsenault
