A warm "Goodbye" to Gordon and Christine

MLK "Dreaming" Activity This Coming Sunday: January 18

Join us this Sunday, January 18 in our "One Room" church school with children and adults to celebrate the life and dream of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Together, we will share where we see MLK's dream being lived out in the world and we will also have time to share our visions for what we hope the world can be. As we celebrate and remember his life, I am reminded that MLK fought tirelessly to answer God's urgent call to transform the suffering world around him into the world God and all of us dream of. Although we have made some strides since MLK's time, there is more WE can all do to further bring his, God's and our dreams into fruition. Join us at 9:00 am in the Great Hall!
