What Do We Do with the Painful Stuff?

October 8, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


Today’s Topic

Our past includes painful things as well as beauty. When we consider the gifts of our heritage, what do we do with the painful stuff? How do we hold and process the breaks in relationship, the harm, the cruelty, the trauma? On this Sunday before Indigenous People’s Day, join us for this worship service where we explore how to learn and heal from the past to repair the present and build a better future.

Worship Team:

Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister
Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director
Amanda Thomas, Guest Musician and Conductor
The Chancel Choir
Rev. Kimberlee Tomczak Carlson, Minister of Religious Education
Don Weimer, Worship Associate

Livestream at 9:00 am:

Join us for the complete service live on our YouTube site at 9:00 am. Find a recording of the service at our YouTube site anytime after 9:00 am.

Social Hour:  Join us for coffee or tea in the Leenhouts Common Room after service to meet friends, old and new.

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.
