Piano Player Needed

Our long-time piano player, Russ, is retiring at the end of the year, and we are searching for a new piano player for our Sunday morning worship services. This will be a paid position.

Please share this info with any local people who may be interested.

Fall Stewardship

It’s that time of year again – our Fall Stewardship campaign has started! While we are more low key than most congregations about stewardship, that does not mean we we don’t need your support to continue to provide a progressive Christian presence in Bl0/No.

You can find the letter and estimate of giving form by clicking here.

You can find a copy of a draft of our projected expenses by clicking here.

Please help us continue in our time what Jesus began in his, working for the healing of our world as an inclusive, compassionate, and joyful community.
