    Mother Jones – Discussion
    In 1902, she was called “the most dangerous woman in America” for her pro-union activities.
    She opposed child labor, abortion, and woman’s suffrage and may be, in her own words,
    the great-grandmother of all agitators.

    capoiera

    MSU Capoeira Mandinga
    Join this group to learn the fascinating martial art of self-defense created by Afro-Brazilian slaves to overcome oppression and gain freedom from slavery.  To disguise this art of liberation, practitioners known as ‘capoeiristas’ infused fluid music and dance elements.  A great way to sharpen your body and mind.

    Dress
    Come as you are.  God is (and we are) more concerned with your heart than your clothing.

     

    Sunday Service
    Our Sunday service begins at 10:00 a.m.  Plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow us to properly greet you.  But if you arrive late, no problem.  Just go up the stairs, down the hall to the end, and then take a right to find the sanctuary, where we gather on Sunday mornings.  Our service is casual with an assortment of music including traditional hymns, choir and handbell music, and contemporary songs.  Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.  After the service we serve coffee and treats in the fellowship hall.
