This Sunday.

Bound for Joy

Our stewardship service and spring pledge drive kick-off. Philia the Owl wants to pledge, maybe, but has a few questions about whether giving us a field mouse will be enough. Led by Rev. Barnaby and canvass chairs Brett Millier and Karl Lindholm. We’ll collect for … read more.

Black Lives Matter!

No More Killing!

Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) invites us to stay engaged on Black Lives Matter efforts. Several walked with Middlebury College students protesting for justice for Breonna Taylor Friday Sept 25 at Cross St Bridge. Several have posted and had their BLM lawn signs stolen, especially from East Middlebury and Ripton. We are urged to report this to police. Follow more here.

Words from Rev. Barnaby

From the Minister

I’m writing this on the morning of my 71st Birthday. It’s a little unconventional, I admit. Most people take the day off from work on their birthday, if they have the power to do so. And you have granted me that  power. But these are unconventional times. And writing this monthly letter to you isn’t conventional work.

This letter is usually an invitation for you to reflect on who and where we are together as minister and congregation. Time for that is kind of  gift, so here it is: a gift for myself and you to celebrate the day that was (by the time you see this) my birthday. I would send along cake too but that (by the time you see this) will be gone. Read More about “From the Minister”
