Heart Thoughts: Georgiana Tree West

As I continue to navigate the waters of my life without LeRoy, I am doing better than one could expect. I am grateful for that, and I owe much of it to all of you.

Online-Only Sunday Services

After careful consideration, the Board of Trustees has decided to pause in-person Sunday services and continue online-only services until further notice. Given the current rise in COVID-19 cases in the state, along with the concern of an increase in Omicron variant infections over the next few weeks, we feel it is the most sensible decision.  We are filled with gratitude that we have an established online format and a strong community to get through this time. Please join us in holding faith that we will move forward into brighter and healthier days. Join us after service on Zoom for discussion…
