In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, our building is NOT open and accessible to most members to help keep everyone safe. However, we are scheduling times when members who wish to sit in our sanctuary for a short time to meditate, pray and admire the beauty of our stained glass windows may visit. Please read the announcement below:
