We have much to be grateful for in this time of our church life. All are invited to join us in a time for multi-generational worship, as we express our thanks for the gifts that each person brings to our community. In music, in story, and song, we offer our gratitude. Come, ye thankful people, come. Worship today is led by Rev. Anne Mason and Lisa Maria Steinberg, Director of Lifespan Faith Development.


For Sunday’s Thanksgiving service, the sanctuary choir and tenor soloist Austin Burns will sing Stephen Schwartz’s Broadway hit “All Good Gifts” (from Godspell) and Grant Cochran’s lovely arrangement of the Shaker song “Simple Gifts.” Guest soloist Sarah Menard will sing the mystical shape-note song “Vineyard.”  And for the centering music and postlude, flutist Meg Newhouse, joined by Rip Jackson on the piano, will play two movements from Johann Sebastian Bach’s magnificent Sonata in Eb Major BWV 1031 for flute and obbligato keyboard.
