A Farewell for Daon Drisdom, Minister of Music
Sunday June 20th after worship

You are invited to come by the church after worship on June 20th to say farewell to Daon who will be moving on from UCW at the end of June. We will gather outside on the front yard for some cake and words of gratitude.

10:00 a.m. Worship  (Online)
PENTECOST!

This Sunday we celebrated Pentecost, which some call the birthday of the Church! We remembered that after Jesus ascended to heaven, God sent the disciples a powerful helper in the form of fire and wind. The Holy Spirit came to fill and transform them, equipping them with all they needed to share and receive the Good News of Jesus in new ways.

We are grateful to Jaap van Reijendam for preaching and leading worship this Sunday while Rev. Stacy is away. May our hearts and ears be open to Holy Spirit as we share in worship together!

Continuing the “Space-Making” Conversation
This Sunday, May 23rd, Following Worship

A group of 15 members of the UCW community met after worship on April 11th for a discussion of Yale Divinity School’s seminar on space making by Rev. Phiwa Langeni. Interest in the topic was such that we decided to continue the conversation after worship this Sunday. All are welcome as we explore our understanding of gender identity, gender expression, and the aspirations of our church covenant.

January 24, 2021, 10:00 a.m.

This Sunday, we explored the call to create the Beloved Community. What did Jesus have in mind when he called those first disciples asking them to leave their nets and follow him? What did those disciples catch a vision of? What was it that lit their imaginations and emboldened their actions. What could a vision of the Beloved Community mean for us today?

November 15th at 10:00 a.m. 

Our scripture this Sunday took us one of perhaps the most beloved passages in the Gospels.  Jesus tells us not to worry.  God provides.  (Matthew 6: 26-34). But the passage ends with an interesting twist that we explored.
