Homeless Memorial January 10 noon

Join us next week for the first 2017 memorial. We will gather outside for 20 to 30 minutes and then enjoy a light lunch together inside.

There maybe an opportunity to create quilt squares.

This event and the actual recording of names takes on even more importance in the face of new approaches to counting people without homes.

Sermon for Ordination of Michael Shapcott to the Diaconate December 4

Ordination of Michael Shapcott to the Diaconate
