Human Library January 2, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. Online and In-Person
Join us for our Human Library service!
You are in for a treat when you attend the Human Library service this Sunday. During the second half of the service, eleven special volunteers will personally share their struggles and successes (and their stories will not be streamed). You are sure to learn something as you sit in a small group to listen to the “human book” that you choose to “read.”

We will Share the Plate with Human Library
The Human Library is, in the true sense of the word, a library of people. We host events where readers can borrow human beings serving as open books and have conversations they would not normally have access to. Every human book from our bookshelf, represent a group in our society that is often subjected to prejudice, stigmatization or discrimination because of their lifestyle, diagnosis, belief, disability, social status, ethnic origin etc. Click Here to Donate
Wonderful Wednesday Offerings!
January 5, 7pm “Remember, Release, Rekindle” We gather for an evening of reflection on the year that was and on your hopes for the future. We will journal, share and begin a vision board if you like. Rev. Joyce will lead the session.
