Rev. Kristen Rohm, Minister
Jennifer Troy Papp, Director of Religious Education
Our Worship Theme for November is Mortality.
Becoming a Survivor
I lived through cancer four times. That alone makes me a Survivor, doesn’t it? Well, not quite, at least not as I see it. In this sermon, I describe my experience with cancer and its aftermath and explore what ultimately makes me a Survivor.

Who We Are
Love is the spirit of this church, and service is its law. This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.
-Rev. James Vila Blake, 1894
- We are a congregation of free faith and religious diversity.
- We meet to celebrate the miracle of our being and the wonder and mystery of our universe.
- We seek to provide a caring, accepting intergenerational community which supports ongoing individual and spiritual growth.
- We strive to live our values, accepting our individual responsibility to be active in environmental and social concerns in our church, community, and world. And because we share these values, we include the voices and dreams of all who choose to gather with us.
