On the Front Lines of Resilience

Nelson Mandela wrote, “Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” Resilience emerges often in times of institutional challenges. Worship will feature special guest, Blake Dremann, military officer and former president of SPART*A, a national LGBT advocacy organization focused on transgender military service. Mr. Dremann has been a beacon of resilience for thousands of LGBTQ service members and their families. Come and hear his story. 
WildBerry Jam will sing, with Dick Gilbert on piano.
First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which those in K through 5th grade follow their teachers to their classrooms. Parents of K through 3rd grade are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship; children in 4th grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants—4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
