The Second Sunday of Easter
April 8, 2018
"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

This Week's Anthem:

I'd Rather Have Jesus
a solo by Jack Prince

I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I'd rather be His than have riches untold;
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand.

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin's dread sway;
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause;
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
I'd rather be true to His holy name.

He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He's sweeter than honey from out the comb;
He's all that my hungering spirit needs;
I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead.

April 4th marks 50 years since the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join the Sunday Christian Formation conversation, "3 Epistles on Race in America," as we explore contemporary racial relationships using writings that, while perhaps lesser known than King's famous "I have a dream" oratory, resonate powerfully today. The video curriculum includes speakers: New York City journalist Errol Louis, New York University professor and poet Fred Moten, and Trinity Church Wall Street Vicar, Phil Jackson. Hear their examinations of three civil rights era letters from Dr. King, James Baldwin, and Thomas Merton, and reflect with your church community.
