Sunday Morning

Service: "A Garden of Delight"

led by Rev. Laurel Gray


Today we’ll gather to celebrate the beautiful garden that is our community and the garden that our community is planting, both metaphorically in the form of our religious exploration program and literally in the form of our new garden plans. Join us for this celebration of new growth and all those who have been tending our gardens!

This service will be held in the sanctuary and on Zoom:
