  • February Worship Series: Wade in the Water

    During the month of February we are celebrating Black History Month by looking at history, justice, and religion through the lens of African American Spirituals. We love these beautiful worship songs, but often we have no idea of the history behind them. The reality is that many of the songs we appreciate as spirituals, or songs that come from the gospel genre, have their origins in the experience of the slaves and in their resistance to that evil system. These are songs of hope that challenge us to be honest about the past, heal the wounds from trauma still lingering in the present, and look towards a future of peace and equity.


  • Ash Wednesday Worship
    Join us for worship on Wednesday, February 26th at 7:30pm as we host a joint Ash Wednesday service with Trinity UMC and Open Door MCC. There will be worship stations, communion, and the receiving of ashes along with beautiful music and a warm, inclusive welcome for all. You are welcome here! Please join us!
  • Fruit for February: Germantown Help Pantry Collection

    We're looking to share fruit for February with our hungry neighbors. This month we will be collecting non-perishable fruit for the Germantown Help Food Pantry, including cans and plastic tubs of fruit. Please place your donations in the bins in the red wagon in the Narthex by the coat closet. As always you are welcome to give whatever food you wish, we just designate a monthly target food to generate interest and excitement in our donations.
