A message from Rev. Lee Ann

There is indeed life on the other side of a pandemic.  At least, it seems like there will be.  Thanks be to God! And to lots of smart scientists, healthcare workers, and responsible humans who washed their hands and protected each other.  Our lives and our communities have been transformed in so many ways.  


Over the past year, thanks to FCC’s Stream Team, ever-creative staff, and faithful congregation, we’ve developed a vital and engaging virtual worship experience.  We’ll keep that up as we joyfully return to welcoming in person worshipers again.  


If you’re looking for a progressive, inclusive, and open-minded spiritual community, we warmly invite you to check out a Sunday morning service (either in person or livestream) or try one of our small groups.  The most up-to-date information about all events is found in our weekly

e-newsletter, “The Comma.”  Sign-up here to be added to the email list.


If you have any questions or want to reach out, I’d love to visit with you.  Here's my email if you’d like to talk.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

We live in a system that keeps Americans divided by race -- those who live traumatized by it, and those who have benefited from it. As persons of faith, and followers of the radical teacher Jesus, we feel we must speak out against injustice and not just be passive protesters. 

Racist violence has been tacitly supported in this country throughout its history. Treating others as less than human because of the color of their skin is not an expression of kindness or inclusion, and it must end. The murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Elijah McClain, among the countless others who have been victimized by racist violence in our nation's history, must not be forgotten or ignored. We must all stand together to fight against white supremacy and racism in all its forms. 

We, as a nation and a world, have been forced to pause in this time of COVID-19 to create a safer world, and this must include safety for all Americans and all global citizens. We must stand in solidarity and move from passivity to action in seeking safety, justice, and respect for every person. 

Blessings and justice for all.
