Join Us on September 7 for Rally Day!
Come to the Meeting House on September 7 when we kick off the program year with worship at 8:30 and 11 a.m., followed by festivities in the churchyard. On that day, Sunday School classes for all ages resume. In addition to classes for children and youth, our adult education class features, “Making Space for God,” with our new Associate Pastor, Katherine Stanford. Katherine will share some of the key events of her faith journey that shaped her call to ministry.
