We see troubles everywhere: COVID has kept us apart, wars are threatened and fought around the world, and the climate is not what it used to be. How can we feel grateful in times like these? Rev. Joan Carolyn – long-time member and Congregational Life Team Lead for CUC – will explore this question and offer suggestions.
Coordinator: Kelvin Seifert
Note: On this morning, Wellington Crescent will be the route of the WFPS Run. Motorists turning into the church parking lot are asked to be extra careful looking out for runners, and to follow the directions of any race officials at the entrance.
