"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you..."

This scripture passage, the grand finale of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount from the Gospel of Matthew, has been described as the most unreasonable of all his teachings.

Inauguration: Remembering Our Call

Regardless of how we may have voted this past November, as followers of Christ, you and I are called to stand up and speak for the poor, the downtrodden, the downcast, the forgotten, the immigrant, the refugee. This is our calling from Jesus, in the legacy of the prophets.


Dramatic Presentation Feb 12 @ 11am

On their Winter Retreat last weekend, our Youth Choir and Carolers began the creative task of staging portions of “March,” their dramatic presentation examining a history of oppression, from biblical and American slavery, to the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements.


Groups are forming to participate in a book study during Lent.  We will discussing the book Healing the Heart of Democracy by Parker Palmer.  Discussion will be centered on Palmer's 5 Habits of the Heart that make Democracy possible.
