Grief GroUUp

Online Event

Grief GroUUp
Wednesdays, May 12 & June 9, 4:00-5:30 pm
Rev. Furrer and Milly Mullarky are convening a Grief GroUUp we suspect may interest some of our membership and help meet their current emotional needs. These are people who have recently lost a loved one and are in various stages of grief. You or someone you know might benefit from a supporting/listening/caring small group where we can offer ourselves to one another, including insights and strategies gleaned, and shoulders upon which to cry.

Winter Solstice

Online Event

Please join us on Zoom for a virtual gathering to celebrate the return of the sun on the longest night of the year. This is a beloved East Shore tradition going back decades, but we have to do it differently this year. We will have worship, ritual, music, and stories, and are considering ideas for a virtual circle dance. This is a family friendly service. All are welcome to attend remotely. This year the celebrants will be live in our beloved sanctuary once again. This is the fifteenth year that the Struble family has participated in the Winter Solstice service and we hope to make it a blessed celebration to start off the new year on the wheel of the year.
