"I Dream in Fruit"
Reverend Scott McNeill
Continuing with our monthly theme of "Story," our service will lift up stories about the lives and deaths, hopes and fears, stark realities and vivid dreams of refugees around the world - sharing both similarities and differences with our own stories.  
What's Happening in Religious Education This Week . . .
Preschool will connect with the yellow promise, Yearn to learn through the story Small Fry.
