Rev. Jennifer Whipple preaching about the fruit of Kindness.
We are a church committed to nurturing the gifts of the Spirit in ourselves and in our children. Join us as we begin a summer of exploring what it means to grow the "fruits of the Spirit" (from Galatians 5) among us -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. This week our focus is on Kindness.
Final Summer Campfires
Please join us on July 29 from 6:00 to 7:30pm
This year our campfire evenings will begin with a potluck barbeque at Fellowship Hall. Bring your own meat or veggies to grill and a side dish to share. From there we will head over to our campfire circle for some fellowship, worship and fun! We will take some time to explore our faith and get to know one another. Then it’s time for singing and joke telling.
Bring your musical instrument, your favorite campfire songs, your sense of humor or all three! And feel free to invite your friends or neighbors to join us. S’mores and lemonade will be supplied.
BYOBS (Bring your own bug spray)
Please note: In case of inclement weather, this service will be held inside Fellowship Hall, just across the lower parking lot from the Memorial Garden and Outdoor Chapel.

YOUR QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME HERE!
- Would you enjoy the guidance of fellow seekers to help you support your children's growth into strong and compassionate moral thinkers?
- Are you looking for a place where you can bring your deepest joys and sorrows and find real companionship in celebration and suffering?
- Do you long for a place where you and your family can learn to love one another and care for the world in a compassionate faith community?
We hope our little white-steepled meetinghouse will become a weekly refuge for your soul -- where you can join us to share gratitude and wonder for your life, and learn to use ancient spiritual resources to wrestle with your questions about the greatest mysteries of the universe.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey,
YOU (and your questions) ARE WELCOME HERE.

Thursday Morning Prayers & Bible Study
9:00 to 10:30am in the Church Library
Begin your day with a time of quiet contemplation in a simple ministry of prayer, as we lift up the names of those who are sick or grieving, who are in discernment, or have thanksgiving or celebration to share. We will have a brief Bible study of our weekly lectionary scripture texts, led by Senior Pastor Bryn Smallwood-Garcia. Join us every Thursday, or drop in as you have a need for prayer or a morning free for study.
If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at email@example.com.
