Making Meaning in a Chaotic World by Reverend Tom Capo
Our world is full of distractions, from television shows that we must watch to smart phone that are with us 24 hours a day to the various demands of raising children, keeping our home clean/repaired/updated, and having enough financial and emotional resources to survive.  Just coping with all of the demands and distractions can be overwhelming.  So how do we take the time needed to make meaning of our life experiences?  There will be a time to share our joys and concerns during the service.

A tradition at our church, this service of music and readings is a delight that lifts the hearts and pleases the ears.  A special collection will be taken to support our Bridge Community project.

Fire Communion by Kelley Trombly-Freytag and Kat Gelder
Fire is a beginning and an ending, the transformation of wood and air into light and energy. Our congregation celebrates Fire Communion at the turning of the year to recognize this particular moment of change, which symbolically represents the constant process of change in our lives. This year, we will ponder the stars, and how these distant fires parallel the fires of our own lives. The service includes rituals to release those burdens we no longer wish to carry forward and to renew our passions and dreams for the year to come.  There will be a time to share our joys and concerns during the service.
