Please note that we are back in person (as well as online) at 11!

Memorial Day was created to honor and give thanks to those who were willing to die in the service of their country. So let us ponder today: what would we die for? And what does that tell us about how to live? These questions are made more poignant–and urgent–by the mass shootings that recently devastated Buffalo, NY; Uvalde, TX; and 15 other towns in the United States in between.

And, in the midst of sorrow, we joyfully welcome our newest members in a ceremony during today’s service.

Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern

Special music: The Season of Us, jazz duo
