Mister Rogers Movie Tonight?


Pastor Stewart is going to see the new movie staring Tom Hanks tonight at 6:40 pm at the Senator Theater. Buy your ticket first and then meet at 5:15pm at Zen West Mexican Restaurant before if you like for dinner. Email or text me if you want us to save you a seat.

We'll talk about Mister Rogers, his theology, and his legacy during the Forum on Faith at 9:15 am in Hart Hall this Sunday. If you have a cardigan, it would be a great day to wear it to church. Come hear the story of his sweaters!

It's a beautiful day in our neighborhood friends. You are special to me and the God we all serve together. I'm grateful to have you in my life.    Stewart+

Forum on Faith


November 24 – A Study of Mr. Rogers. Pastor Stewart will lead the group in getting to know more about Mr. Rogers, a Presbyterian minister who was so caught by the lack of healthy TV programs for children that he decided to roll up his sleeves and create something himself. He created Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this PBS program. Pastor Stewart will help us learn more about Fred Rogers’ story.
