Two Years Later
The Reverend Janet C. Bush
Tuesday’s election will matter, and no matter what happens there will be work to do.
How do we see our role as a religious community at this moment in history, and in the years ahead?

Here We Are Gathered
The Reverend Janet Bush
How would you describe the abundance in your own life, and what shapes your sense of it?  How do you celebrate that abundance and share it with others?  These questions will frame our service, and will also be at the heart of the house gatherings taking place at members’ homes at its conclusion.  Everyone is welcome to attend a gathering – those who aren’t signed up will have an opportunity to join in by speaking with someone from the Stewardship Committee at the end of the service.

Abundance and Resilience

The Reverend Janet Bush and Jessica Harwood
Leaves, a tale of Native American wisdom – and even the tails of turkeys, a native American bird.  Join us to find out what they have to do with one another.  Our service for all ages will be a celebration of Thanksgiving in story and song.

Rise Up! Rise Up!
Members of the Climate Action Group and the Haiti Support Group
Experts tell us that educating girls in the third world is one important way to combat climate change. We’ll explain why and introduce you to Sonje Ayiti, (Rise Up Haiti) an organization dedicated to improving the lives of girls and women in Haiti.
Our offering will support this work.

Cancellation of Sunday Services
 In the event that Sunday services need to be cancelled, an announcement will be sent via email and will be posted on the Society's website.  In addition, the office phone message will be updated (by 8:00 AM Sunday morning) and television stations WWLP (Channel 22) and WGGB (Channel 40) will be notified.  It is recommended that you check at least 2 of these sources (e.g., you will not get the recorded phone message if the building is without power).  The decision to cancel services will be made no later than 7:30 AM on the Sunday in question.
