Bill Humphries, our church treasurer, has sent a letter to all members concerning our capital campaign. We are in the home stretch and need everyone on board for a successful finish.



"Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks -- we will also find out path of authentic service in the world. 
- Parker J. Palmer
