Join us this Sunday
December 5, 2018

10:30 am Morning Service:   December 2 | Peace Within, Among, and Between.  As December begins, this is often a season for us to think about peace. What does peace feel like within ourselves? Among others? Between communities? Come explore what peace could look like for us and for our neighbors and join in praying for peace for our larger world.
—Rev. Lane Campbell

9:15 am Drop In Discussion: December 2 | The Real World.   The world we live in is real. Every child knows this! But especially in times of social transition, it’s important to recognize that the real worlds people live in may be different. Hank Stone will facilitate.

On December 9, Rev. Dick Gilbert will review In the Wake of a Wave: Albany 2019 .
