We ask congregants to please arrive and be seated in the Sanctuary between 10:45 and 11:00. If you arrive late, the usher will let you in at the appropriate time or a sign will be posted that you should use the rear entrance of the sanctuary (the entrance from the steps nearer the street) so as not to disrupt the service in progress.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, September 28th, 11:00 a.m. - Adam and Eve Remembered -- Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

All human societies, including our own, tell stories of how the world began. Such stories are almost infinitely varied in detail, but they tend to include some basic themes. Todays service will remember the Hebrew Biblical account and also delve into the ongoing psycho-social implications of scriptures and myth.
