It’s a Conspiracy!

The Rev. Dr. Mark Y.A. Davies, leading

So many persons are drawn to conspiracy theories. When one begins to believe one of the many baseless conspiracy theories being spread, it is like a gateway drug that leads persons down a path of accepting beliefs and explanations of reality that are demonstrably untrue and that are often racist, anti-science, and have the capacity to motivate persons to bring great harm to others. You may read Dr. Davies’s bio here.


Conversations & Calories

Our answer to traditional church coffee hours. Gathering in the Emerson and Alexander Rooms we enjoy lively conversations and assortments of finger food and sweets to enjoy.
