In the fall of 2018, our church began a process to imagine the future of our building and grounds. A Building Our Future/Beyond Ourselves team was formed to guide this process, gathering information from congregants and from architects and other experts. Below are links to information compiled in this process. Join the conversation as we build a future to support our mission of being a welcoming, compassionate community that nurtures spirituality and practices justice.
