The Joy of Gender

June 9, 2024 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Summer Schedule begins, 1 service only at 10:00 am.

Gender is a topic as complex as humans are, with there being so many gender expressions and experiences. Join us this Sunday as we look to transgender authors, poets, and ministers to celebrate the transformation that comes with gender. Whether you are transgender, cisgender, or not sure about gender – join us to celebrate the transformation that comes with self-reflection and discovery! 

Rev. Bowie Kling-Garcia (they/them) is the Spiritual Care Supervisor and Palliative Care Chaplain at UnityPoint Health – Meriter hospital in Madison, WI. Their journey to ministry started here at First Church as a lay member in 2018, and now they are the Affiliated Community Minister at James Reeb Unitarian Universalist Church. In their free time, they enjoy reading, playing board games with their husband Logan, and snuggling with their energetic cat Yen.

Rev. Bowie Kling-Garcia, Pulpit Guest

Parking: Our church has no parking lot. Jewish Family Services lot: JFS welcomes us to use their parking lot on Sundays. 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. After you park, get a token from an usher in order to exit the lot. We also rely on street parking in our neighborhood. Here is a map with details.
