Sunday Forum for December 21

On 12/21, Rev. Bill Bradbury will lead a forum about Mary. We call her “the mother of Jesus”. The ancient church called her the “Mother of God”. Let’s look at Mary and see if there is more to learn about this woman who said “yes” to God.

There will be no forum on the 28th.

Ringing the chapel bell

chapel_bell_c_sOur chapel has a bell tower and bell, which were added to the original structure in the 1890’s. Under the leadership of Dan Wilson, our high school youth are now ringing the bell at 9:55a.m. We hope that you will enjoy hearing a part of our heritage, and that you will use this sound as a signal to prepare for the start of our worship service with a time of silence and reflection.
