Friday Update

New Year’s Day
Finding Our Center: The Labyrinth
January 1, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. (Please note this service will not be live-streamed)
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

The Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool that helps us come back to our center.  We’ll learn a little about the labyrinth and then experience the journey in the sanctuary, where a labyrinth will be set up for today. 

We will Share the Plate with The African-American Resource Center at Booker

Mission Statement:
To provide an environment that promotes the quality of life, values and the welfare of the people of our community through education, art, recreational and cultural programs, and to promote learning and sharing within the greater multicultural community.

We provide programming that enhances the quality of life, promotes the achievements, and improves the welfare of the members of our community.
