“Community of Support”

Rev. Paul Beedle

A key question for members of a diverse faith community grounded in covenant: how can I support you on your spiritual path when it looks so very different from mine?

First Sunday’s Special Collection: on the first Sunday of every month, we dedicate the offering to an important cause or organization. This Sunday the chosen recipient is our own Minister’s Discretionary Fund, which is used to assist members and friends of the congregation in meeting their basic living needs and other emergencies.
