This Week's Service: "Emancipation Day"
This Sunday, we celebrate Juneteenth, also known as "Emancipation Day," commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans. In Sunday's lectionary, we also hear the gospel story of Jesus setting a bound man free.
Please join us this Sunday at 10 AM (either in-person or streaming live online) as we celebrate freedom and recommit ourselves to building a just world for all. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Max Brown.

Last Week's Service
The first Sunday after Pentecost is known as "Trinity Sunday," when we celebrate the "three-in-one" aspect of God. In last Sunday'sgospel reading, Jesus speaks to the apostles about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. How do we make sense of the Trinity? Is God one or three? Please enjoy last Sunday's service, when we explored the metaphysical understanding of the Trinity. Message: Pastor Sal Sapienza. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler
