If you would like to contribute towards the flowers which will decorate our sanctuary on Easter Sunday, please use the green envelopes located in the pews.   If you write in your name or a memorial dedication on the label in the lower left, it will appear in the Easter bulletin.  The envelopes can be placed in the offering plates or dropped off or mailed to the church office.  After our Easter service, please take a plant with you so you can enjoy it at home.



Come and join us on Wednesday evenings as we explore spiritual practices that can help center us and enrich our Christian faith. As people who strive for justice and seek to live a faith that is active, these spiritual practices can help us be more balanced in the health and well-being of our body, mind, and spirit.

Join us on April 17 at 6:30pm for Integrated Spirituality: Reiki Energy Medicine & Meditation.

This introductory two-hour Workshop will offer experiential practices and teachings where you will :

  • Learn how to work with healing energy in everything you do.

  • Learn to use intention, connection, breath, movement and meditation to learn how to raise your energy level.

  • Learn to be more present in your body and in your life.

  • Move into a quiet meditation.

You will experience Reiki which is a Japanese system of natural healing using Universal Energy that treats the whole person -- body, emotions, mind and spirit – using the subtle Reiki energy that resides within us. Reiki is easy to learn and creates many beneficial effects, including stress reduction, relaxation and feelings of well-being.

Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring a notebook, pen and water bottle!
