Join us at one of our social justice activities, come to the much loved Bread Communion service, connect with others near and far through Dining for Women, the IRC, Second Hour programs and many volunteer opportunities.

We’re hoping that the forecasted April showers will bring not only May flowers, but an explosion of color in our lobby as members make their pledges and insert their silk daffodils into the display before our annual pledge campaign ends on April 3.
