Election Week Schedule Additions, Deletions and Changes Events
November 3, 4, 5 & 6
This week is a big week, but it is also a stressful week. No matter how the election results, some of us may feel more tension next week than a regular week. As your faith home, we want to provide you opportunities to work through your tension, to be with people in your community and to be spiritually well during the week. For that reason, we’ve put together these resources for you during this time which are in addition to or replacing our normal weekly programming. Please check the calendar.
Tuesday: Tea-Ology will be cancelled so that Reverend Ed can provide a pastoral presence at our polling site.
Tuesday: Timely Topics for Tough Times: How Can a Divided America Heal:
