A Call to All: Our First All-Church Read

Race is not something people can choose to ignore anymore. Ijeoma Oluo

This fall each of us is invited to read So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. This is the first time SPC has embarked on a church-wide reading experience together. Why this book and why now?

SPC PRAYER PORTICO

Please note - There will be no Prayer Portico on Wednesday, September 2.

The Prayer Portico is a way to give people a chance to interact with the church space, each Wednesday and Sunday evening from 6 to 8pm. The Prayer Portico is a chance to come to the church property and give yourself some time for prayer, meditation, and reflection. Candle-lit prayer stations will be set up along the portico on the right side of the building -- entering from the front. There will be four stations, properly distanced where you can, if you wish, light a candle, say a prayer and have some time to meditate and reflect. No appointment is necessary, it is first come, first served. All are welcomed. Please follow mask and social distancing guidelines.
