Nothing replaces the experience of being in the presence of people you care about. However we will do our best to deliver a meaningful time of reflection and connection as normally scheduled at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.
Online worship will include:
- a Time For All Ages,
- Celebrations and Sorrows,
- online giving for Sharing our Gifts,
- a sermon and readings.
If you would like to email me (email@example.com) your Sorrows and Celebrations, they can be read.
Rev. Kent Doss

Engaging in advocacy sounds scary. It doesn’t have to be. There are many effective ways you can be a powerful voice for the housing needed in your community to end homelessness. Join us to learn:
- How to avoid shouting matches and instead find and join with like-minded people to engage in positive action
- The difference between project-based, policy-based and issue-based advocacy and how to organize around each
- The housing development process and how you can help move it toward approval
- How to find the information you need to be an effective voice for more supportive and affordable housing in your community
This class is led by Tim Shaw, former Executive Director of the Orange County Homeless Issues Task Force and Michelle Murphy, Director of Public Affairs for Orange County United Way.
You will be emailed the link to the Zoom meeting about 24 hours prior to the training. Class is limited to 100 participants.
