April Services


Exploring Our Margins
led by Charis Boke

Based on writings of visionary Latina feminist scholar Gloria Anzaldua, this service will explore the concept of mestizaje and margins. At its heart, the sermon is about healing - of the individual, the communal, and the societal sort.


When People Come Together
led by Rev. Telos Whitfield 

This service will honor the time of Passover and the incredible journey the Jewish people undertook for freedom. We will explore the strength that comes when people bind together, and the learning that comes when we wander alone in the wilderness, as Jesus.


A Defining Moment

led by Rev. Sandra Whippie

A joyful service to welcome spring on Easter Sunday.


The Power of Song led by Rev. Telos Whitfield with our Choir
led by Rev. Telos Whitfield with our Choir

This service continues our exploration of history and music that began in Africa and early spirituals; and now we explore the power inherent in freedom songs sung during the civil rights movement and the evolution of gospel music.
