Children will gather at the Shepard Park Shelter next door to the church this summer for our summer youth R.E. program beginning June 12. While the adults experience a “Popcorn Theology” series this summer, the children will build community through “Popsicle Theology” – enjoying the lazy days of summer, sharing popsicles, having fun, playing together and making friends.

We have resumed in-person coffee hour When weather allows, we will have coffee set up after the service outdoors and the greeting area doors propped open. We invite folks to move between the space outdoors or indoors according to their safety needs and comfort levels. On rainy Sundays we will set up coffee in the greeting area after the service and invite folks to spread out into the sanctuary for plenty of space. Coffee hour also is available online via Zoom.
