June 2nd: All the Colors of the Rainbow


– Rev. Wendy, Monica Rizzo, & Friends

Scientifically, a rainbow is an arc of light that displays all of the visible colors of the spectrum.  Spiritually, a rainbow offers much more as we examine colors in nature, in song, in humans-all the colors that combine to make the astounding beauty of our world.  Join us for our "Religious Education Sunday" as we explore the rainbow and also recognize our teachers at our annual Teacher Appreciation.

June 16th: O Father, Where Art Thou?


– Michael Malone & Friends    
There are a few, the fortunate, whose fathers have played an active and engaged role in their lives, yet many have grown up wanting more presence and attention from their dads, wondering maybe: “O Father, Where Art Thou?” The reasons for a father’s absence are as varied as the shades of color in stained glass. Many fathers, even those divorced or separated, today are seeking to stay engaged in their children’s lives. In this Father's Day Service we’ll hear from several dads about the riches that fathering brings and the challenges they face “to be there” for their child.
