Practicing the presence of God through faith and action in our community
We have walked through our season of Lent, the "spring in winter." As our wonderful clergy team remind us: "Today as we wait with longing for the time when we can fully celebrate Easter together, we remember that we are Easter people and go into this day with hope and joy on our hearts! ... [W]e recommit to practicing resurrection in our lives and in this beautiful world." We are bringing back the "Alleluia," believing that each and every one of us in this world is a person who is deeply loved by the Creator.
In-person public worship and community gatherings taking place in our facilities remain suspended at this time.
