Steven Epperson and our DRE, Kiersten Moore, for this all-congregation worship service.

This service will feature an exploration of one of her greatest works—The Farthest Shore.

An Intergenerational Winter Solstice

Robin and Owl argue over which is better: day or night? But what if we only have one or the other? Anyone can show up and don a mask or costume to join those with rehearsed parts.

We explore the need for balance within our own life, within nature and within society. Come celebrate the darkest part of the year and the return of light to come.

Come and see how Joy Silver unveils the mystery of Spirit Play.
