Witnesses to the glory of God in the face of Jesus will be unable to avoid reflecting that glory in the world. It was true for Moses. It was doubtless true for Peter, James, and John. We pray that it will be true of all of us who see the glory of the Lord in the word and in the supper and who are being “transformed into the same image” by the Spirit of God.
Join us as we bury the Alleluia and Burn the Palms. Vicar Toby is preaching. It's going to be great!

Since some of us are off for President's day it seems like a good day to clean up the church in anticipation of Easter. We'll do general cleaning in the community center and sanctuary. If there are special projects that you think you might want to do, please see Rene (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we might be able to make them happen.
Our first fundraiser for the 2016 Camp Fund is coming up on Leap Day, February 29!
Every four years we get an Extra Day. Some call this bonus day Leap Day, but we are thinking of it as a Superlative Spaghetti Supper Day! A day where Calories Don’t Count!
Join us for a BOW TIE AFFAIR to help send a bunch of Neat Kids to Camp!
No dress code, non-pasta bowties are optional!

A lesson in music, African and African diaspora history, and activist history - her two-part workshop will go over the breadth of the African and African American singing tradition and show the ways that group singing can build, strengthen, and fortify community in such times as these.
