Abandon Ship? The Answer is No!

Star Trek and Inspiration for the 21st Century

  • Reverend Dave Clements
  • Reverend Emily Manvel Leite

Wait, in the midst of global pandemic, rising authoritarianism, disrupting debates, uprisings and the future of democracy on the line, Reverend Macklin is planning a worship service based on Star Trek? Of course. Star Trek is about maintaining one’s determination, values, and integrity in the face of challenging and dangerous times. Join us as we celebrate the spirit of Star Trek, its creator, and unusual connections to our congregation and the city of Bloomington – the future birthplace of Star Trek Captain Kathryn Janeway in the 24th century. Will this worship service offer deep meaning-making for Trek fans and non-Trek fans alike? Indeed. We will “Make It So.” Special thanks to Techie, not Trekkie, Ned Joyner.

Our Building is Closed for the Time Being, but Our Hearts are Still Open.

To do our part to disrupt the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19 in our community, our Board of Directors has reaffirmed the decision, announced at the June 7, 2020 Congregational Meeting, to plan on keeping our building closed through May 2021. The Board, in consultation with ministers, will continue to reassess this decision at their monthly meetings, and will keep us updated as the situation evolves. All in-person events and meetings have been canceled. Everyone please stay safe and stay well.
