“Radical Welcome”

Rev. Cindy will talk about the religious value of creating a space of welcome. How do we welcome the stranger? How do we welcome people different than “us”? How do we welcome children and people of all generations?  

“Water Communion and Ingathering”

Bring water from your home or a special place as we celebrate the beginning of our year with this ingathering service where we name the generations of our history, bless the backpacks of our school-goers, and talk about water and justice.  

“Testimonials”

Participatory service with testimonials by three members on a welcoming theme – What made you feel welcome here and how did you know this was your “home?”
