We are a church of open minds.
We are a church of loving hearts.
We are a church of helping hands.
Together we care for our earth,
And work for justice
and peace in our world.
Is this your first "virtual visit?" I invite you to read our Mission, learn about our church, read past sermons and find out about our community, or stop by on a Sunday morning. We'd love to meet you in person.

9:30-12:00 Leadership Development
Everyone can be a leader. There are many easy-to-learn skills that can help all of your committees and groups be more productive. We’ll discuss several different models of leadership processes and how to involve people of all ages in leadership in the congregation by paying attention to generational differences. There will also be an opportunity to talk about some of the specific leadership challenges of your congregation.
12:00-1:00 Lunch (to be served at church)
1:00-3:30 Generosity and Stewardship
Generosity and Stewardship are both important components of thriving religious communities. Having a clear sense of mission and vision is also crucial to a healthy community. We’ll explore how generosity can be a spiritual practice and the foundation of relationships and connections that can strengthen your congregation. There will be time to share where you are and where you want to be in terms of stewardship and plan some ways to get there.
