This Sunday’s Service
Does Religion Have an Auto-immune Disease?
Rev. Dr. Steven Epperson
Sanctuary :: Sunday, April 30 :: 11 am
This provocative idea was recently put forward by Rabbi Donniel Hartman. The impulse to privilege a relationship with God, he contends, too often undermines the deepest values of religion – helping to create morally sensitive and active people and ethical societies.

Each spring, we reflect on the meaning of our church in our individual lives and we consider increasing our financial contribution whenever possible. April is “Pledge Month” when you can expect to see friendly reminders about the importance of pledging – that is, writing down the amount you think you can contribute for the next church year July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. We need everyone pledging in order to plan our future. The amount may be changed at any time if personal circumstances change. Please commit to making a pledge this April. Our goal is 100% by April 30th!

Human diversity, spirituality, and well-being
UCV groups or committees often serve lunches after the Sunday service in the Hall, across the courtyard from the Sanctuary. Money raised is shared between the committee and the church’s general revenue.
Forums are usually held in the Fireside Room at 12:30 pm on Sundays. Informed speakers give presentations on a wide variety of topics.
