Gathering for Neighbors

This Sunday February 9th, Neil Snipes will be presenting a segment from the documentary series "Beyond Theology". The segment to be presented is "Church and State" to be followed by a discussion.

"Church and State"

The separation of church and state is one of the most fundamental principles of our democracy. While some contend that we need to return to our roots as a "Christian nation," others dispute the notion that the founding fathers intended this to be a nation dedicated to any particular religious tradition.

~ Our offering will be for "Neighbors in Need" one of the five UCC designated offerings. ~
