Sunday, July 26, Service – “Darkness, Silence, Stillness”

11 AM Sanctuary

Matt’s two months away offered a chance for learning, reconnection with friends and family, and relaxation. They were also a chance for deepening spiritual experience. Matt will share his reflections on particular spiritual aspects of this sabbatical journey: darkness, silence, stillness, and touch on how these might apply to each of us.

Worship Leader:  Rev. Matt Alspaugh

Musician:  Marcellene Hawk Mayhall

 

Sunday, July 19, Service – “Summertime Rituals”

11 AM Channing Hall

Ritual need not be somber to be powerful.  Ritual can be Fun!  We will playfully explore some common Summertime Rituals — Skipping Stones, Swimming Pools, and Sparklers — and see how they can meaningfully connect us to our higher selves.

Worship Leader:  Gina DeAngelo
Worship Associates:  Darby Webster, Hope Lovrinoff-Moran and Andy Pfrenger
Musician:  Tim Raridon

 

Sunday, July 12, Service – “Community Conversations: Turning Outward & Leaning In”

11 AM Channing Hall

Using the Turning Outward framework developed by the Harwood Institute, we will engage in an intentional and hopefully inspirational facilitated conversation about how the church can be a leader in efforts to improve our community–inside of the church and out. These conversations ask participants to envision the community they wish to live in; and as the discussion goes on, we will
dig deeper until we find ways to make what could be into what can be.

Worship Leader:  Sarah Lowry

Worship Associate:  Sarah Lown

Musician:  Nanette Kaplan Solomon

 

Sunday, July 5, Service – “Celebrate Religious Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness”

11 AM Channing Hall

Our founding fathers, whom we celebrate on July 4, exhibited resilience which gave them strength to break free from England. If all of us work to develop this resilience, we will be able to live well and to thrive even during rough patches in our lives.

Worship Leader: Ralph Malmer

Musician: Marcellene Hawk Mayhall
