"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.

hurts, joys, and interests."

Remembering Barbara Brady
It's not goodbye; we will meet you again.
O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day our sister, Barbara.  We thank you for giving her  to us, her  family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on  our earthly pilgrimage. In your boundless compassion,  console us who mourn. Give us faith to see in death the gate  of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue  our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with  those who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
