Upcoming Services:
Oct. 8th: "Healing America's Polarizations: A Report from the Braver Angels Convention in Gettysburg."  with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy

"Braver Angels is a national movement to bridge the partisan divide and strengthen our democratic republic.  Launched in 2016, Braver Angels is a national citizens' movement to bring liberals and conservatives together at the grassroots level — not to find centrist compromise, but to find one another as citizens.  On the site of the great battle of the Civil War, Gettysburg, we met to prevent another one."  Along with a few others delegates from Vermont and New Hampshire, Rev. Mellen attended to reflect, listen and learn the skills and processes that can help us heal our divides.  In this service she'll share some of what she gleaned from the experience and invite us into this sacred work of listening respectfully across our differences and in so doing healing our beautiful and bruised world. 

Oct. 15th: Worship Committee

Rev. Dr. Nancy Jay Crumbine
Oct. 29th Will Hunter

Our Services are each Sunday starting the second Sunday in September until mid-June, with two services in July and two in August.

Coffee Hour 11 am - Noon

Our Affirmation:
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve the need of all beings,
To the end that all souls shall
Grow into harmony with the Divine
Thus do we covenant with each other
And with the source of our being

“Share the Plate” is a program where each month we take a collection for an organization that is alignment with our principles. Please consider giving to our monthly program recipients

Our Share the Plate recipient for September will be the Maui United Way,

The island of Maui in Hawaii recently experienced the worst wildfires in the country in many years. Their financial assistance program has assisted people in communities like Lahaina, where per capital income is often just $30,000.

Please join us in supporting the people of Maui, many of whom have lost family and friends, or lost homes and businesses due to the wildfires. 

October Share The Plate will be BRAT, the Black River Action Team, conducted its 24th annual River sweep on Sept. 9. As a local grassroots organization, they continue to provide education, resources and ongoing actions to protect local watersheds, among other activities. We have chosen them as our Share the Plate recipient for October. You can send donations to BRAT in care of Kelly Stettner, 101 Perley Gordon Road, Springfield, VT 05156.
