Roots Hold Me Close

November 14, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Each family, chosen and inherited, has stories that shape how we understand our place in the world and make meaning of life’s triumphs and sorrows. Each generation carries forward the hopes of their ancestors, a chance to build on a lineage of collective wisdom embedded in our family stories. How important is it to know the history of your loved ones? What can their stories teach you and your children, and how can you pass them on? Join us for multi-generational worship service, where all ages will explore the power of our roots to guide us into our future.   

Worship Team:

Rev. Kimberlee Tomczak Carlson, Minister of Religious Education & Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister 
Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director (online)
Patrick Mulvey, Worship Associate 
Child Dedication Ceremony
