Welcome to Eliot Chapel's Sunday service!



Sunday, April 11

How Free Are We to Be? – Rev. Krista Taves

Many of us received the message that we could grow up to become anything we wanted. This was a liberating promise and many of us took it to heart. But sometimes, it didn’t work out that way. How do we reclaim the range of our becoming in a society where some are freer than others?


Our service video will be available at 10:00 am at eliotchapel.org and will remain there all week. You can also find it directly on Eliot Chapel's YouTube channel.
