Join physical therapist and yoga therapist Emily Large every Thursday morning for a truly unique experience of holistic worship by integrating the body, mind and spirit. In each class, Emily guides participants through appropriate movements, breathing techniques, use of sound, mental focus, reflection and prayer with intention to commune with God at every dimension of our human experience. Everybody and every body is welcome. Bring the kids and the grandparents! Emily skillfully offers appropriate modifications to those in need. Email Emily at with any questions.

Previewing the Lectionary | Fridays | 11:00 a.m. | Zoom

Join Canon Tom O’Brien for a one-hour, open-ended, interactive and freewheeling discussion of the Bible readings for next Sunday. No Bible expertise is needed, just a willingness to discuss and learn. Each session is a “stand alone” session, so you can join any week. Having a Bible at hand to follow the readings is a plus, but not essential. For more information contact Canon O’Brien at
