Sunday Schedule:

10:00 Sunday Service
11:05 Children's and Adult Religious Education and Corner Forum
Corner Forum

The Corner Forum is a lively discussion group that meets after service at 11:05 in the corner of the church.

Discussions are provocative, opinionated, sometimes-argumentative, always interesting. Often we start out sharing feelings about the just-completed service, then go to any topic anyone wants to discuss. Please join us!

Our Affirmation

From all that dwell below the skies
Let songs of hope and faith arise;
Let peace, goodwill on earth be sung
Through every land by every tongue.

All ages are invited to attend our worship service. Anything said at our services is for your intellectual and spiritual stimulation; no one is asked to agree or acquiesce to any doctrine or creed. Instead, you are free to seek the truth for yourself according to the dictates of your own reason and conscience. All are encouraged to give input and suggestions for speakers as it is a vital part of our church's spiritual growth.

The Contours of Compassion
Susan Yarbrough

 

We've often heard that love makes the world go'round. More likely, however, it is compassion - a deep stirring of the heart - that leads to small and large actions to walk with others in their joys and sorrows. On Sunday, let's reflect together on the inner sources and outer expressions of our compassion as individuals and as a church body, the limits of compassion, and how to refill our own spiritual wells when compassion fatigue overtakes us.

Doing the Work of Love
Rev. Dr. Daniel O’Connell

 

For some of us, compassion has always come easy and it is a strength we use in moderation. Others of us suffer from "compassion fatigue" and find ourselves becoming more uncaring than we'd like. And how do we muster compassion for people who really, really don't "deserve" it?
