Upcoming Events



As part of our experience of our Advent worship series, “God Bless Us, Every One: The Redemption of Scrooge,” you are invited to join Pastor Teressa and other St. Paulians in attending Hangar Theater’s adaptation of this beloved Dickens story. We have been offered special ticket prices of $32/person if our group is under 20 people, $28/person if our group exceeds 20 people, and $20 student tickets. The show is recommended for children 8+ years and children under 5 are not permitted due to the scary nature of some of the special effects. Sign up HERE or through the weekly email link!


We are thrilled to welcome Emily Plummer as our new Children’s Music Group director! She currently works at IC3 as a TA and as the music teacher for the center. She enjoys teaching private guitar lessons to kids. Previous to these jobs, she was a music teacher for a Music Together type program in Seattle, and a children’s swim coach. She has a wonderful spirit and a true heart for working with young people. Kids ages K-5th are welcome. Watch for more details in the weeks to come about a musical offering in the works for older youth.

Supper for the Soul: A Monthly Gathering for Reflection and Conversation
 October 9, 5:30-7:00 PM

We live in confusing and challenging times.  What are you longing for now? Beginning on October 9 and continuing on the 2nd Wednesday of each month through May, we’ll convene from 5:30 – 7:00 PM in the Memorial Room.  Our time will begin with a short period of silence, followed by an opportunity to talk with and listen to others, and ending with a simple meal of soup and bread. Evening topics will be inspired by what is significant in our lives now.  Please email soulful.living.center@gmail.com if interested.


Discussions will be based on the book Parenting Forward: How to Raise Children with Justice, Mercy, and Kindness by Cindy Wang Brandt. Email AnnaSannes@fccithaca.org with questions or to RSVP. Click HERE for the full poster with dates.
