Worship Services

May 21
Service: "All That Jazz"

Rev. Michael McGee. Duke Ellington wrote, "Jazz has always been like the kind of a man you wouldn't want your daughter to associate with." Jazz does have an unsavory reputation for some, but for many others jazz is at the heart of American music and democracy.

May 28
Service: “Question Box Sermon”

Memorial Day. Rev. Khleber Van Zandt.
