In the United States, every 107 seconds someone is sexually assaulted.
The survivors of these assaults are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and members of our congregation. They need us to help them speak out, to create a place where they can share their stories without fear or judgment.
Join us for Break The Silence Sunday / Speak Out Sabbath this Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 11:30 am. Guest speaker: Tina Rushing
In worship we will acknowledge the painful reality of rape and sexual violence; trusting in the good news of God’s love, and we will commit ourselves to being a listening people, and a people dedicated to changing the reality of violence in the world.
This service may be difficult and challenging but it is necessary for us, as we seek to become a spiritual refuge for all people.
Please take time to prepare yourself . Ask God for the strength to open your heart and mind, that we shall support all the survivors who are part of our church, our community, and the world.
If you have questions or concerns about the service, please contact Pastor Robert.
