If you are visiting us for the first time, please allow us to extend our warmest greetings. We are an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. We look forward to having you join us in worship.
Gary began planning our Summer of Love series months ago, assigning the theme “Love in Action” to this Sunday’s worship. Then we saw love in action this past weekend, as hundreds stood up against hate in Charlottesville, and hate took the life of Heather Heyer (pictured). The Lesson for All Ages is called “Staying Clean” and Gary’s Sermon is “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure.” Leslie Anderson will be our guest musician, and has asked that we all join together in closing the service with “Get Together,” the unofficial anthem of that 1967 summer.
This Sunday, we continue our “Summer of Love” series with a focus on divine love and a sermon titled “I’m Sorry, Dave.”
This Sunday, we come to the Lord’s Table and continue our Summer of Love, with a sermon on human love titled “Monkey Souls and Human Hearts.” We will have an abundance of music, Gerald and the choir, Anne and Lin Parker, and Arsentiy Kherifonov, a visiting international pianist. Instead of our normal First Sunday collection for Tree of Life, we will continue to collect books and stuffed animals for Christmas Angels.
This Sunday, we conclude the historic portion of our “Summer of Love” theme with a look at October 1967. The pastor’s sermon will be titled “The Death of the Hippie.” After church, Gary will meet with members of our one-season, three-season and four-seasons communities who wish to learn more about church membership. All are welcome.
This Sunday we consider the Summer of Love in Manhattan and the subversive nature of love. Gary’s sermon is titled “Before the kleptocrats.”
This Sunday, we continue our Summer of Love. Gary’s sermon is titled “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out.” After church, we celebrate Wendy Ritger’s years of service as Church Secretary and Sunday School Superintendent, then continue the conversation with our Open and Affirming Refresher for those who missed the first gathering.
