This Coming Sunday –
This Sunday will be the 20th Anniversary of our voting to become Open & Affirming!
This bold stance on behalf of the belovedness and blessedness of each and all of God's children has been a rich source of blessing and challenge for this congregation.
For the 20th Anniversary, we're exploring ways of honoring this year by lifting up the stories of LGBTQ people of faith and allies in town, and to further explore what an affirming faith means.
If you want to be a part of dreaming up how we can make this a special year please let me know!
For our Worship Service the message will be "Beloved, Be Leavened & Be the Leaven"
Sunday, January 26
Our Annual Congregational Meeting will follow worship, followed in turn by a Potluck!
Bring a dish to share if you like.
All are welcome in peace.
