NOTE: These pages continue to change as we try to provide convenience and options with the transition to online services. Media players on these pages will now default to audio, which is just the traditional sermon portion of the service. There is a control (director's clapboard icon) to switch the player to video. If available, it is typically the full service. You can also select the sermon title in any list of sermons, which will take you to a page with the audio/video options for just that service.

The Reverend Ellen Rowse Spero has served as our minister since August, 2002.
