Rev. Claire Feingold Thoryn


Grace is a gift. We can’t earn it. We can’t control it. We don’t have to deserve it. Our worship theme of Grace begins with dis-grace. Mary, unwed and pregnant, makes a decision to refuse shame and embrace life. What can we learn from her and how can we find grace in our lives?

Animal Blessing

Join us on the lawn by the Community Center for outdoor worship. You can also connect from home on Zoom. Our September worship theme is “Sanctuary.”

It’s Been Two Years

Join us for worship–in the Sanctuary or on Zoom–with Rev. Claire. We will mark the two-year anniversary or our Covid lockdown.  

Question Box

Join us online for a multigenerational service. Ask Rev. Claire your questions. All questions are welcome: animal, vegetable, mineral; spiritual, theological, philosophical; silly, serious, or downright profound! Watch the newsletter for the form for submitting a question.


At last….homecoming! Our outdoor all-ages Ingathering service will feature old and new favorite hymns on the worship theme of “Sanctuary.” Rev. Claire, DRE Beryl Aschenberg, and Music Coordinator Shaylor Lindsay have prepared a joyful, hopeful service to honor the beginning of our new church year with all the blessings and challenges it brings.

Stronger Together

Rev. Claire will reflect on this month’s worship theme of Strength, and how spiritual strength is something different than a strongman’s might.
