Rev. Claire Feingold Thoryn

Ablaze

We begin this month’s worship theme of “Pilgrimage” by dedicating some of the babies who have been born in our community this year. Rev. Claire will preach on the strange, funny, and powerful story of Pentecost, and what it can mean for us today.

Membership Sunday

We welcome 11 new members into our fold and celebrate the contributions of many long-haul members. Plus a great sermon about creativity, evolution, and the meaning of membership.  

A Pinpoint of Light

In the middle of this dark solstice season, our hearts yearn for light and hope. Join Rev. Claire, Tyler Turner, and our Senior and No-Name Choirs as we seek a light in the darkness. Sermon: A Pinpoint of Light   Lord, At First, Did Adam Make Echoing Carols: Children, Go Where I Send Thee:
