  • 09/17/17--11:00: The Fundamentals of Caring
  • 11 a.m. What does it mean to be a "Welcoming Congregation" in these turbulent times? This week we will explore ways that we are called to care for one another as well as the immense responsibility of caring for our wider community and global village. What are ways that we live up to this call within and outside of these walls and how can we prepare ourselves to welcome the challenges that surely lay ahead?

  • 10/22/17--11:00: Where the Heart Is
  • 11:00 Some of us have spent a lifetime searching for a place to call home, a sanctuary of respite in difficult times. Others have been lucky enough to have sweet memories of a childhood home or have created their own places of spiritual and emotional renewal. How does home nourish your spirit? How can we as a church community help people feel at home? Can we find the courage to offer sanctuary to others?
