Food For Thought

This Sunday was a very special service that focused on issues of hunger and food insecurity.

In Praise of Maybe

As we continue our exploration on the spiritual theme of "Possibility," this Sunday Rev. Peter, DRE Chrissy Bushyager and Worship Associate Josie Cressler reflect on the possibility that we're wrong.

Mission: Possible

Our Spiritual Theme for the month of January is "Possibility." As we embark on a New Year, it's a good time to reflect on the meaning and purpose of our lives. As a congregation, we have a mission statement to guide us, and perhaps some of us have a "personal mission statement" as well. How are we all doing and what possibilities do we have for living into our purpose?
