Welcome to our friends from St. John’s! For several years, we have shared July services with St. John’s Unitarian Universalist Church at 320 Resor Avenue. This tradition continues in 2017. On July 2, 9, and 16, our friends from St. John’s will join us at First Church for worship and Sunday school. In return, on July 23 and 30, we will join them at St. John’s for the same. Note that the services at St. John’s begin at 11 a.m.

Sunday, July 23, 11 a.m.

Stronger Together

As capable and self-reliant as we may pride ourselves on being, sometimes we are just stronger together. To balance rugged independence with collaborative interdependence takes skill, faith, and a lot of good-will. This week Rev. Mitra and Laura Gentry will explore the joy of deep collaboration through words and music. Special music, including the amazing Mike Wade, arranged through Jazz Alive.

To Sing What We Cannot Say

Music moves us like nothing else. From Mozart to Mumford and Sons, from the eternally classical to the top 40, music says what we cannot say with words alone. Today the Rock and Roll group Ned and the Dirt will join Rev. Mitra to explore the deeper emotional realities and implicit understanding of ourselves through music.
