Join us Sunday morning for worship at 10am! On Sunday, September 17, we begin a sermon series on Spiritual Practices – not in the sense of traditional disciplines like fasting, prayer, or worship but on the internal attitudes we practice to help open us up to God’s transformative presence in our lives. The series will continue through October 29th, when we will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and talk about what reformation means for us today. We hope you will join us throughout the series!
October 15: Compassion
October 22: Forgiveness
October 29: Willingness to Change
Meet Pastor Leah
It is our joy to introduce The Reverend Leah Lyman Waldron as our next settled pastor beginning August 21. Leah says her priorities in ministry will be pastoral care that helps people feel God’s loving presence, preaching that makes scripture come alive and illustrates how we might live out God’s call in our daily lives, and equipping the faith community she serves to discern how the Spirit is calling us to make God’s love tangible in this world. Read more about Leah, and join us every Sunday morning at 10am for worship together. Meet Leah at meet and greets in October and November. And read about her sermon series during October.
Bending the Arc
Join us for a screening of Bending the Arc on Saturday, October 28, at 7:00pm. Partners In Health is the subject of a this documentary that looks at the global health movement through the experiences of PIH leaders Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl, Dr. Joia Mukherjee, and others. Through remarkably candid interviews and stunning, never-before-seen footage, the film traces how their work grew from a struggle to save lives in one rural Haitian village into a global movement fighting to secure the right to health for all.
