Sunday worship begins at 10am in a live ZOOM format, and is followed by a ZOOM coffee hour on April 26.

Lila Tadlock and Finn Breismeister will be the readers for the day with readings from Wangari Maathai, the Ute People, and the 12th chapter of Job. The children’s story will lift up the rainbow as the symbol of God’s promise and the congregation will be invited to color and hang rainbows in their windows.The sermon, entitled, “What Are We Fighting For?” includes the amazing story of the 24 young people involved in JULIANA v. UNITED STATES Youth Climate Lawsuit. Their complaint asserts that, through the government’s affirmative actions that cause climate change, it has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, as well as failed to protect essential public trust resources.
