The Multiple Meanings of Easter
Rev. Michael Brown
Easter is a major holiday in our part of the world, a celebration that represents a variety of ideas. With pagan roots, Christian significance, and obvious symbols of spring, Easter proclaims a spectrum of messages. From almost every point of view, life is being reborn. Our choir will sing Mozart's Dona Nobis Pacem.

Jazz Sunday
Maureen O'Haenny
The Jazz Sunday service this year will feature Laughing Horse, a group led by Larry Harms. Jazz Sunday is a long standing tradition in this church, going back about 20 years. Leave your worries at the door. This is a service where you don't have to think, you only have to be in the moment while you enjoy some delicious tunes from Larry on saxophone(s), Jon Byler Dann on bass, Michael Carlson on drums, and Trefan Owen on guitar. There will even be a story for the kids about a laughing horse, yet to be conceived by me. This is a gorup you don't want to miss!
