Kristina Spauda – This church is our home. This community is part of our family. The world around us is changing in many ways, and we as a church and a community are also changing. Today’s service will reflect on and celebrate our gratitude for the church and its community; the many ways in which we give back and take part in caring for it; some thoughts about what we hope for the future; and how these are all tied together.
Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Ted Voneida – The title from this service is taken from a book of the same. This is a service for those who will have valentines this year and those who will not. Whoever you are, we welcome you to this service in celebration of love.
Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns – Our new congregational covenant proclaims that ours will be a congregation which nurtures community for all ages. This morning we will consider what we are doing well and what we can do even better to welcome, include and celebrate children and youth as part of our beloved community.
