   Jacob King    "What it Means to be a Member"

Sunday Services

Our Sunday morning services are from 11:00 to 12:00 and are customarily followed by a Q & A period. We engage a variety of speakers, each exploring his/her own subject, which may be philosophy, history, local social concerns, education, ethics, comparative religions, and so forth. We try to open our minds to receive truth and inspiration from many points of view.

You are warmly invited to visit our Fellowship House, 875 W. Market Street, Lima, for Sunday morning service and to join the conversation during the social hour after. Alternatively, some services are simultaneously available on-line.
