In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.— Albert Schweitzer

Thank you!

Our community benefits enormously from the efforts of volunteers! Every day, members of the congregation step forward to help. In big ways and in small ways they give their time, ideas and efforts. This page of Volunteer Appreciation is dedicated to their contributions and our thanks.
