How You and I Still Support Slavery
presented by Rev. Carol Bodeau
Our Outdoor Service begins at 10 a.m.
Zoom service offered at 11 a.m.
Virtual Coffee Hour Begins at ≈ 11:30 a.m. on Zoom
Most Americans mistakenly think that slavery is a thing of the past, something that was done away with here in the United States, and generally is most of the western world, in the middle of the 19th century. Of course, many of us are aware that slavery still exists in other countries, but are we paying attention to how we ourselves are supporting slave labor when we go online or to the mall? It’s time we started thinking about the supply chains for our globally produced goods (which is most of what we use) and hold ourselves accountable to know where and how our toys, furniture, technology, clothing and other material goods are made, and whether or not slave labor was part of their production. Come learn some tools for waking up and taking action.
How Our Outdoor Services Work
Our in-person, outdoor service begins at 10 a.m., weather permitting. Check the weather and use your best judgement on attending. In the event of closure, we will update this website and social media channels as soon as possible. Members will be contacted through email channels as well.
Please bring your own chair.
Masks are not required. We recommend that Members, friends, and guests follow CDC guidelines as they apply to you and your comfort level, and use your own discretion about wearing a mask outside during our outdoor services and activities.
Our restrooms will be open to all. One person will be allowed into the building at a time. Volunteer monitors will be stationed at the back entrance to allow access through the Adult RE room.
Our Zoom service begins at 11am, followed by Zoom coffee hour for all.
Can't Attend Our Outdoor Service? Join us for our Zoom Services! 11 a.m. on Sundays
Our Sunday services are conducted by Zoom video-conferencing, so that we can interact in many of the ways we are used to for our worship time together. A password is required to attend our Zoom service. Complete Our Connection Card to Request Access to Zoom.
Please allow 2-3 days for a response to your request. We will be in touch with you as soon as we can.
