NEW Sermon Series!

Our next Worship Series begins this Sunday and we're calling it "Down by the Riverside"

This Worship Series is based on the work of William Sloane Coffin, who was the pastor of Riverside Church in New York City. So, we are going “Down by the Riverside” to learn about his voice around how social justice intersects with scripture.

Rev. William Sloane Coffin has stood as a force for progressive religion in America and in the world. Becoming famous in the 1960s while leading a very public opposition to the Vietnam War as Chaplain at Yale University, he was indicted by the government in the Benjamin Spock conspiracy trial. He marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., was jailed as a Freedom Rider, and became one of the most forceful Christian voices in the Civil Rights movement. He was the first president of SANE/FREEZE: Campaign for Global Security and lobbied for nuclear disarmament. Later, he served as Senior Minister of the prestigious Riverside Church in New York City, where he inspired thousands and continued to be a powerful voice for conscience and change.

We'll be hosting online guided discussions on Social Justice, and Civil Liberties to go along with this series. You can sign up for the discussions here:
