Joyful, Joyful

Join us for this service via an on-line Zoom Meeting

We’ve talked about opening to joy the last few weeks – now let’s make some!  This morning, we’ll sing and play together even as the longest night of the year approaches.  And we’ll share in the joy of welcoming a new member!  You’ll be invited to speak during the service.
