9 & 11 am

Worship Service Who Shall Inherit the Church? Nick Allen and Rev. Greg. New year, old church. While the boat of liberal religion has always moved in the cultural tides, the institutional church has long offered a mooring. Many UUs now contend that our institutional survival demands we cast off from the congregation and move to choppier waters. Where do we float in a post-church society?
