In the Midst of It All
These days, it feels like everything around us is changing so fast we can’t keep up. At the same time, here at church, we continue to clarify our values & purpose. We are in the middle of a great deal of change in this community. How do we stay on track,
optimize our efficiency, and keep ourselves grounded and focused? No guarantee that you’ll find an answer in this sermon, but there will be helpful tools and strategies shared.

Annual Water Service
As we in Asheville enjoy one of our wettest years in some time, remember to bring special water that you have collected from around the work or just in your backyard to our annual multigenerational Water Service. This year as a special surprise, we have heard that the Water Spirits will be joining us. The who? The Water Spirits! Come and see…and bring your water!

A Few of My Favorite Things: A Personal Journey with Voluntary Simplicity
Rev. Jeff Jones, Guest Minister
