Rev. Florence Caplow and Aaron Brown at TRUU!
TRUU has an exciting plan for ministerial services in the coming year 9/1/23- 7/31/24. Reverend Florence Caplow, who was our residential minister 2016-2017, will be leading Sunday worship remotely once a month. On these Sundays, we will meet as usual in the Community Room of the 3rd Street Center and she will join us on Zoom, projected on the large screen. The music, hymns, chalice rituals and readings will all be in person.
On the second and third Sundays of each month, we are very pleased to be joined in person at the 3rd Street Center by Aaron Brown, who has been a regular speaker at TRUU for the past 11 years. While he is in Carbondale, he will be staying in the TRUU parsonage and provide other ministerial functions and engaging with our TRUU community as time allows.
The fourth and occasional 5th Sunday services will be fellowship and social justice services, respectively.
