Upcoming Services

Sunday November 26, 2017 

November 26: Boone’s Latinx Community and Immigrant Justice - As part of our quarterly theme “Circles of Community,” Craig Fischer and the Social Action Workgroup will celebrate the contributions and traditions of the High Country Latinx community. Part of the service will be a preview of (and invitation to) our annual Three Kings celebration, to be held on January 6; our RE kids will share the three (!) piñatas they’re building for the festivities. Then we’ll be joined by Sarah Sparks Donovan of the Watauga NAACP’s Immigrant Justice Committee, who will talk about current issues in the community and answer our questions. 

December 3: “Sins of the Father: At the intersection of Race, Religion, and the Search for meaning.”- Rob Lee lost his position at his church in late August due to his stance on the Black Lives Matter Movement. Seeking redemption from a past filled with hate and enslavement, Lee is on a new mission to spread the word of inclusion in places and spaces that need to hear the news that we’re inextricably bound together.
