Join us this weekend for Young Church Sunday, the annual service when Young Church children and families lead most of the elements of our service, and a Blessing Ceremony led by Julie Parker-Amery and Reverend Rebecca for our graduating seniors.

This year we are exploring themes of shining our light, with several reflections and an original poem written by our Young Church children.  We hope you can join us!

“Nothing can dim the light that shines within.”
