Rev. Nica Eaton

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whomever you love, whatever the color of your skin, the shape of your body, your age or the coins in your wallet, you are welcome here. Today, we gather for our annual Ingathering reminding us we are all welcome here. Join us for our special water ceremony in worship followed by our community fair. All are welcome!

SPECIAL NOTE: Families are invited to stay in the service. The Joy Corner is open! So that children may participate in the traditional water ceremony, this will be an all ages service.
