Welcome to Pastor Travis, Our New Pastor for Care & Community

With joy and thanksgiving to God we are pleased to announce that our journey to call a new pastor is complete! On Sunday, September 18, the congregation voted to call Pastor Travis Segar to be our new Pastor for Care & Community. Pastor Travis has accepted the call and will begin his ministry among us as he presides in worship on Sunday, October 30, 2022.


I was taught that the “golden rule” was “do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Jesus says this. The Buddha does too. In fact, this rule is part of nearly every spiritual tradition known to humanity. There is a cynical rework of this rule I learned later in life: “The one with the gold makes the rules.” While it is cynical, it is also true. Money and wealth are not just possessions, but power. Those who have vast wealth have lots of power.
