We will have a brief organizational meeting after church this Sunday, and then we will meet for five weeks, beginning May 26, at 8:30 a.m. We'll be studying Love Songs and Reproaches: Passionate Conversations with God, a book of poetry by biblical scholar and poet L. William Countryman. We will have copies of the book available this Sunday for $15.

Worship is the core of our shared life together; do you feel called to enter more deeply into this silent, but key ministry? Please contact either Kirsty or Johnnette+ if interested.
