Our theme this month is “Community – Nurturing the 3rd Space.”

The “third space” refers to a space that is neither “home” or “work” in which people cultivate a sense of communal identity. In other words, “third spaces” are places that can foster a sense of community—places like libraries, coffee shops, and, yes, congregations like ours. During this time of social distancing, staying home, and worshiping online, we may be feeling the absence of such third spaces as well as the experience of being in community. How might this time help us to reflect upon the gifts of these spaces and of community? Even as we practice social distancing, in many ways we continue to foster community. Here in this moment when we could far more easily create distance from one another, why reach out? What do we find in community that we do not find when on our own? Our theme and these questions call us this month to consider the meaning of community for each of us and for all of us together.

Join us this  month in exploring the theme of ‘Community’ through Sunday services, our SEEK program, and on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
