Ask Away!

Question Mark in Color

A fun annual summer tradition – a “question box” service!  What are you curious about?  What questions do you have for Rev. Karen – spiritual, personal, ethical, philosophical, religious?  Rev. Karen will collect written questions in the chat and in the sanctuary, and offer her responses during the service. This service will also have live music.

If Sunday morning comes around and you decide to attend in person but haven’t registered, you are still welcome. You will just have to sign in when you arrive.

Share the Plate

  • The Share the Plate for August 21st and 28th is Literacy Network. Literacy Network helps adults in Dane County build skills, reach goals and connect communities by offering free tutoring for immigrants, refugees and others who want to improve their reading and writing skills.
