10:30am Sunday Service | Embracing Imperfection
As we begin to explore our monthly theme of "Experimentation," this service will put experimentation and imperfection into conversation with each other. What ways does perfectionism keep us from experimenting? What does experimentation have to teach us about embracing our imperfections?
Speaker: Rev. Lane Campbell

Each Sunday in the Chalice Room (second floor).
