Sunday Services  10:30 AM


During the Summer months we have a more informal and more intimate worship service.  We meet at 10:30 in the East Room, because our sanctuary is too hot in the summer.  If you come there will be signs telling you where the East room is.  Come join us for a Sunday service.  It would be wonderful to get to know you.

Here are the Sunday themes and topics as we know them at this moment.

June 21 – Andrea Wandersee  leads a Summer Solstice Celebration

June 28 – Video presentation from General Assembly in Portland, OR

July 5 – The Keywords of American Democracy – discussion of the deeper meaning of familiar terms
