SPIRITUALITY FOR TODAY’S WORLD

Progressive Christianity is a new spirituality for the twenty first century.

It is characterized by acceptance and love for all human beings, a strong emphasis on social justice and peace, care of the poor and marginalized, respect for the wisdom and practices of other traditions, and an active relationship with the earth.

8:30 a.m. Quiet Reflective Service

December 17, 2017
08:30 AM - 09:30 AM

The early morning service (a more contemplative tone) continues!! But we have changed the time from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The liturgy for the 8:30 a.m. service will be similar to the 10:30 a.m. celebration with the same sermon and texts, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The 8:30 a.m. service will not have musicians, except on rare occasion, with longer spaces for silence and reflection built into the flow of the service. There will not be Fellowship Time afterwards unless that evolves on its own.

10:30 a.m. Sunday Message and More

December 17, 2017

WELCOME!

As a community of faith, we know some measure of God's grace, compassion, mercy, justice and peace, and it is our desire to share that love with you regardless of your age, race, gender, marital status, physical condition, sexual orientation, ethnic or economic background.

Large print worship bulletins are available in binders at the back of the sanctuary. Our ushers are happy to assist you.

Please join us for fellowship following the worship service.  ~ Rev. Dr. Curran Reichert
