    A virtual Easter service led by Rev. Steven Protzman, Colleen Thoele, and Hal Walker







    Rev. Sarah York says:  "Roll the stone away from in front of your hearts."  She invites us to realize that parts of ourselves may be shut away, especially in this time of fear and anxiety.  As we celebrate Easter with its many meanings and its promise that life ultimately triumphs over death, let us be open to Easter's invitation to open our hearts and live more fully.

    What Really Matters

    What Really Matters

    Sunday, April 5, 2020















    A virtual service at 10 AM led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Emhoff Wood.







    Bill Gates recently wrote a reflection on what the coronavirus is teaching us about life and the need to reprioritize.  In this time when we are so aware of life's fragility and the truth that life is a precious gift, what really matters?  We'll reflect together on what this time is teaching us about living and life's invitation to consider making some radical changes in our priorities for a more just, more loving world.

    A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Camille Pavlicek-Fauser







    In this difficult time where we are physically distanced from one another and we need to stay home to help lessen the spread of the coronavirus, how do we care for one another and stay connected?  What lessons can we learn from this time that help us provide a safe haven for each other?  Using a folk tale from Africa, we will reflect on the gifts of compassion, patience, and kindness that can help us through challenging times.

    Together We Shine

    Sunday, March 1, 2020







    Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Wood







    "Add your light to mine, and together we’ll shine."  Hal Walker's words invite us to share our individual light with one another so that together we can share our light of hope and love with the world.  In order to keep this light shining brightly, it is time once again for our annual pledge campaign in which we will ask you to generously share your money, time, and energy so that together we shine.







    Other participants today were The Tone Chimers and Hal Walker with Saunis Parsons, Blaine Vesely, and Vanessa Vesely.







    Sunday morning services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 with nursery care available during both services.
