Please note that both services will be held indoors (with patio seating always an option) due to the chilly temperatures expected.
The service time changes on December 25! Beginning on that day, we will hold a single Sunday service at 10:15.
The concept of childhood, it has been argued, is quite recent in Western civilization. Until a few hundred years ago, children were largely regarded as, essentially, small adults. No wonder religious communities, especially services, were very different then–and far more boring. We’ll travel back in time to the services of an earlier, pre-childhood era, and then forward to our near future of a spiritual community where people of all ages gather together.
Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
Special music: Thomas Shoebotham, cello
