Courage and Death
October 30, 2022 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am
Multi-Generational Service Today.
It takes courage to die and it takes courage to talk about death, yet nobody teaches us how to do it. We know that life is fleeting. Church is a place where we can talk about death and learn from each other how to be honest and courageous in our conversations about dying and what we need when it is our turn to make that great transition. Please join us this Sunday which will include a gentle ritual to honor our loved ones who have died.
Families are especially invited to attend together as there will be no religious education classes on this day. Childcare is available for children under the age of 5.
Rev. Dena McPhetres, Associate Minister
Rev. Kimberlee Tomczak Carlson, Minister of Religious Education
Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister
Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director with the Chancel Choir

It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets.
