Attention: All the folks who have attended the 6 p.m. Service. We are suspending the 6:00 p.m. Liturgy indefinitely. This comes after considerable conversation over the past several years about the purpose and nature and resources that we devote to this liturgy. We are working at ways to use the 6 p.m. time frame in a multitude of new ways that will better serve the broader community, some of which you will be hearing about very soon. Until then, and if you have questions or concerns please call on the clergy and we would love to talk with you.
