Adult Spiritual Formation
Join Amanda Lindamood on Zoom this Sunday at 9:15 am, as we consider our congregation's context, learnings in de-escalation, and the question of safety without police. This Sunday, we will explore a recent ministry example, followed by two planned weeks off on Sept 12th and Sept 19th.

Saturday School
Saturday School will be offered at 10am on Facebook live. Using our Gospel texts, grounding practices, commemoration, and the rhythm of an expanding framework for understanding antiracism within our faith formation, we journey deeper with each other and with God in our noticing practices.
