This Sunday during our "Video Worship Service," we will be celebrating the spiritual gifts with which the LGBTQ community blesses our church family and our world. Message: Pastor Sal.
Music: Peter Black, Dan Pierce, and Elizabeth Estes.
Tune in on Sunday at 10 AM via our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or here on our website.
Last Week's Service
At last Sunday's service, Pastor Sal explored Jesus' charge to sow "di-vision" in our world, and he gave us a replay of his sermon from 2016, when he empowered us all to seek ways to sow justice in our communities. It was a stunning reminder that the work we are doing now is the work we have always been called to do. With music by Peter Black, Stan Greene, and Hannah (Star) Huggett. Here is the video, in case you missed it!
