Topics of Sunday Services for March 2017:


March 5:  Love, Laughter, and Risk

This month’s theme is risk, and this Sunday’s service is about the destructive aspects of our society’s perfectionism – and how learning to laugh at ourselves and others can help us forgive imperfections, thereby giving us all more confidence to risk entering lasting and loving relationships.” Join guest speaker Paul Gibb and Worship Associate Janet Gillette as they celebrate this theme.

March 12:  Chasing Transformation

Often it seems like we are ever chasing various transformations – changes in our personal lives, changes in our congregations, and changes in our society. What’s useful to chase after, and what might not be worth it?  And what do we need to be chasing? Guest speaker Michelle Collins and Worship Associate Angela Arvola will explore these questions and dreams together with all of us.

 March 19:  Dancing in the Void (What To Do When Life Is Blue)

Sometimes a blue haze descends over our eyes covering our perspective with its despair. No one is exempt from this experience. Its pale glow descends on us whenever it wishes. The question is what to do when life is blue? We will look at both that illusive thing called happiness and the energy draining blues during this service – and what to do to lift ourselves from the latter’s grip. As paradoxical as it might seem, there will be fun in this service despite the serious focus. Guest speaker Rev. Robert Latham and Worship Associate Andy Carlson will lead the service

March 26:  Inspiration through Classical Music

 Our own pianist, Andrea Van Nest, will be assisted by Worship Associate David Urion as she shares inspirational stories about famous musicians and composers, including some of their struggles and how she finds great inspiration in their talent and determination. Join us and be inspired!

 A home for spiritual growth, free thought, and loving action
