what about that wall?

Join us on Sunday, January 20 for our first 2019 Courageous Conversation about Borders Battles. Immigration is the most hotly debated topic of our time. Should we fund a border wall? Should the government expel undocumented residents or create a path to citizenship? What about separating families? Americans argue passionately on each side; but, even though 85% of Americans say we are religious, only 7% of us trace our immigration opinions to our faith. What a great thing for a church to talk about together! On February 17 we’ll tackle Climate Conflict, on Sunday March 17 the question is: Are We One Nation Under God? And on Sunday April 28 we’ll talk gun control and The Shots Heard Round the World. Grab a coffee after worship, pull up a chair, and join the conversation.

CONFIRMATION 2019 IS UNDER WAY

S’mores around the campfire helped to make a good start to the year for our 2019 confirmands who went on retreat to the Incarnation Center in Ivoryton CT in the first week of January. Now they are embarked on six months of education, followed by the biggest faith adventure of the year - a service trip to San Antonio TX in June. They will continue to meet over the summer as they prepare for the big transition from middle to high school, and then they will be welcomed as members of the church on October 13, 20-19, Confirmation Sunday. Reach out to Rev. Dave Stambaugh with any confirmation-related questions.
