Online Worship Service for October 24

Join us this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for a virtual worship service followed by virtual coffee hour. We suggest that you have a chalice or candle close by your screen so that we can all light our chalices at the same time. We will share Joys and Sorrows in the Zoom Chat Box.

Closing Words

Chalice Extinguishing
We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we shall carry in our hearts until we are together again.

Unison Affirmation
Love is the doctrine of this church.
The quest for truth is its sacrament,
And service is its prayer.

To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humanity in fellowship,
To the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with the divine,
Thus do we covenant with one another.

Q and A with Ben Frazier 

Virtual Coffee Hour
Immediately following the service, those who wish to remain will be able to participate in a virtual coffee/social hour. Depending on the number of people wish to participate, we will create small breakout rooms.
