*New* Confirmation Program for Adults and Teens
If you have never participated in the confirmation process, we encourage you to do so this year, as adults and 10th grade students will journey together on a shared confirmation series. This class will enlighten participants in many ways and will culminate in a worship service where one of our bishops will lay hands on you and confirm your baptism. Adults who have been confirmed in another tradition and those who would like to reaffirm their confirmation before the bishop should also join in. Contact Rev. Richard for details.

Bring your own lunch and gather with others at church for simple time of fellowship. Contact lay leader Helen Smith for more details.

Racial Reconciliation
Rev. Richard posts opportunities weekly in Realm to Learn, Pray, and Act toward racial reconciliation. You are also encouraged to join the Racial Reconciliation Interest Group in Realm so you can access additional resources and learn with others. Log in to Realm and use the search bar to look for "Racial Reconciliation Interest Group." You can also contact staff to be added to the group.
Opportunities to give of your time, talent, and treasure
The Foraker Family sought a preschool to teach their children not just the ABC's, but also "the bigger things in life." They didn't expect a community that would do that and more: a community that loves and supports their whole family.

Our ministries serve all ages. Will you pledge your financial support? Together, we Give. Together, we Grow!

Pledge Update
We currently have 71 pledges totaling $326,946. Thank you to all who have committed their support!
