On Sunday, January 29 at our Congregational Meeting (following the 10:30 worship in the sanctuary), one action will be to adopt a statement of solidarity with the Muslim community. This statement has been developed cooperatively by our Social Ministry committee, council, and pastors, and was reviewed by interested community members at a forum on January 22 – feedback from that session has influenced the final draft. You can read the statement here: Muslim Solidarity Statement, January 2017
