Ancient Words, Modern Meaning
Sermon Series on the Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments are rich in wisdom and simple in language. They have lived in human minds and hearts for over three thousand years, as meaningful today as when Moses stepped down from Mt. Sinai. Join us as we rediscover these ancients texts in the context of our everyday lives. Series runs through Sunday June 27. 
Walking/Running with a Prayer
Saturdays at 10:00 a.m.
On Saturdays at 10:00 a.m., Adult Christian Ed will be hosting "Walking/Running with a Prayer." We meet in front of Sanctuary. We will share our prayers or pray silently and afterwards run or walk: 30 minutes out and 30 minutes back. Registration and proper social distancing protocols will be required for attendance. If you would like more information, please contact Lolly Anderson through email or call/text 305-479-6347 or email Kristen Llorca.
Got Questions? Let's Talk
Introducing a series of conversations to engage with questions that are important to the nurturing of our faith and passing that faith on to the next generation. First up: What are sacraments? Is it okay for children to take communion? When should I have my child baptized? I was not baptized in this church, do I have to be baptized again? Join Andrea Burt, our Director of Children's Ministries, for conversations about baptism and communion, offered either in-person or Zoom on these dates:

Conversation on Baptism 
Sunday, May 2, 11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.,
