Theology Uncorked is a free program for theological reflection, good conversation, delicious wines and fresh popcorn! This program is offered usually on the first Monday of each month with presentations, movies, etc., which allow us to further examine our lives as it relates to Christ's teachings. You are welcome to bring snacks or a bottle of wine to share as we delve into our theology! All are welcome to join us!

  1. I love to wear the embroidery work from these people. It is a way we can help people to LIVE and EAT and also to encourage artistic talents that dwell in all of us, but are often put aside or not encouraged as “worthwhile” meaning money making. Art is speaking of the soul. Read about many of the famous artists who have lived and sent out the longings of their souls. Think of Vincent…never understood and yet, gave us the most incredible messages from his heart.
