What's New

Our meetinghouse is home to Shiné, a project of meeting member Katy Hawkins. Shiné is under the care of our Worship and Ministry Committee because Katy offers more than simply "yoga classes" but an opportunity to engage spiritually in a different way that is complementary to our waiting worship on Sunday mornings. Find class times and more at https://www.katyhawkinsyoga.com and learn about Shiné in Katy's own words here:
