Worship With Us
Join us for worship this Sunday at 9:55am. Our Gospel Lesson will be Luke 18:9-14 where Jesus offers a parable about humility. Our sermon is entitled The Work of A Lifetime.

As always, we encourage you to bring a friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor … anyone! All are welcome!

Plan to attend our Speaker Series at 11:15am in the Heritage Room. We are pleased that PUCC neighbor and PUNS alum parent Nora McMorrow will be with us to share a bit of her Baha'i Faith with us. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to interfaith intertwine! You will be blessed.

Building Bridges, Not Walls.
Some of our interfaith friends from TASOM (Turkish American Society of Missouri – tasom.org) are eager to become more proficient in speaking English. There are ten people who would like to have a conversational partner. We are hoping to have some PUCCers sign on to engage in one on one connections and a few small groups. The sky is the limit (what does that even mean to someone learning English!?) for what can happen … some talk about a book, some cook together, some go out for a picnic or just chat. The pairings/groups come up with their own plans. This is a great way to commit to building bridges, not walls.

Berrin from TASOM asks that interested persons please visit https://forms.gle/amgYQd98QSwWFumL6 as soon as possible so we can get the ball rolling (what!?).

Please contact Kevin Cameron ( [email protected] ; 314-872-9330) or Lisa Mason ([email protected]) if you have any questions.
