We hope you'll hop onto Zoom after service for après Church, an opportunity to connect face to face and explore a different discussion topic every week. This week's discussion topic, led by Rev. Jason: February can be a time where congregations make an intentional commitment to becoming more culturally sensitive, justice conscious, and racially inclusive. How will you celebrate Black History Month?

For many modern Christians, Jesus’ call for the disciples to be “fishers of people” is a difficult notion to untangle from the Church’s role in colonialism. In Rev. Meyers’ sermon “The Good Ship,” we will explore how Christ’s call is fundamentally one of resistance to spiritual arrogance and all forms of subjugation.

The organ prelude this week includes enduring spirituals, such as Deep River (arr. Billingham) and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (arr. Utterback). Benjamin Stein leads Great Heart and the Metropolitan lead singers in the gospel-influenced anthem "People, Get Ready," and collaborates with guest singer Laurel Tubman on a new song paying tribute to the 1867 New Orleans streetcar protests, "I Stood Tall."

The cornerstone of our week, worship at 11am is offered under the leadership of The Rev. Jason Francis Meyers, Dr. Patricia Wright, The Rev. Mark Aitchison, and lead singers of the Metropolitan Choir.

In-person worship is temporarily paused. Information on registration and health protocols, including providing proof of vaccination for attending worship upon re-opening, can be found here.

The service is livestreamed at at 10:45am, and on Facebook & YouTube. You may need to refresh your page if you arrive early.

Past services can be found on the Sermons & Livestreams page.
