Welcome Back! Moving Forward with Rev. Meghann

chalice art with words

Over the past twenty-seven weeks our congregation has been gifted with the wisdom and insights from our own members and knowledgeable guests, who spoke from the heart on many human experiences and contemporary issues. Steve will talk about what we can we take away from those connections. And we welcome back Reverend Meghann, who will explore where we might go on from here.
