    Rev. Nica Eaton & Thelma Williams

    Exploring Chalice’s Past, Present and Future

    Chalice, like many times in its past, is at the threshold of a new future. We are considering moving to a new location with more space to grow, outside space and better visibility. A potential move can be exciting for some while bringing up anxiety and fears around change for others. Join us today to learn more about how Chalice has managed transitions in the past, and is envisioning an engaging, relevant religious community for the future. This service will be followed by a congregational meeting to explain further where we are in the process.
