New Racists Anonymous Group

Mondays, 7:30 PM

We are excited to launch our own Racists Anonymous group on Monday, October 5, at 7:30 pm. The hope for this program is not to absolve us of guilt or wrongdoing, but to move forward and facilitate a look inward and start to name the actions, thoughts, and systems that are racist. Once we can acknowledge and name racism, we can start to change it. Read More

Hosted by the Diaconate and officiated live by Rev. Larssen on Zoom, this service continues our custom of offering Communion all Sundays of the month.  The first Sunday of the month will continue to include the Service of Holy Communion within the 10 a.m. hour. Read More
