About midway through the pilgrimage trip to Steubenville, Ohio we woke in the middle of the night to what sounded like an explosion.

Trio Cleonice in Concert

October 21

Trio Cleonice and Friends, a monthly chamber music series in United Parish's Parlor, presents "The German Word: Spoken and Sung" on Tuesday, October 21st at 7 pm.


Chancel Choir - Rejoice in the Lamb - October 26

. . a cantata for chorus, organ and soloists by Benjamin Britten, text from the unusual psalm-lke poem,"Jubilate Agno," by Christopher Smart. . . The poetic images in the poem are at times startling, confusing, and even amusing. Britten treats them with just the right amount of humor and seriousness that allows the deeply spiritual truths found in Smart's work to shine forth. . . .


Are you interested in a deeper understanding of the Bible?  Do you want to have a small group experience with others?  On October 19th, a Disciple Fast Track Bible Study will begin. Disciple Bible Study is an in depth exploration of both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.

We invite you to participate in an innovative new faith-exploration course called Animate: Faith. It’s designed to help us figure out our most authentic ways into faith, with some engaging new voices in modern, clear-thinking, heart-feeling Christianity (including Brian McLaren, Lauren Winner, Lillian Daniel, Nadia Bolz-Weber and others).

The 20/30 Vision would like to invite members of the congregation to join them for a game night in the United Parish Parlor on Saturday, November 1st. Join us at or after 5:00 p.m. Kids are welcome, as are snacks for sharing!
