Jeffrey Wyckoff will provide music from the Carillon bells. We held a worship service the day after the 2016 presidential election and are doing so again, because our country is full of strife and facing prolonged challenges, which we can surmount better with God’s help and good will towards one another. Persons attending are asked to wear a mask and observe physical distance.

  • Youth Connections - Youth virtual Sunday School class is offered each week for youth in 6th to 12th grades. We will meet on Zoom every Sunday morning at 10 am. Reading the book "This Book is Anti-Racist" is suggested. We will discuss 2-3 of the sections during each class. It's incredibly important for our youth to connect their growing faith to the issues and concerns of daily life. Over the next couple of months, we will connect our relationship with God to the challenges of racism. We will learn how to become anti-racist as a faith community. Click HERE to learn more about Youth Connections.
