My name is Taryn, and I am here to coordinate Pastoral Care services for you and your family. If you are in need of pastoral care or would like to be connected to one of our trainer Lay Ministers, please contact me! I also supervise the coordination of our Lifespan Religious Education program, where we learn about a diversity of religious beliefs and histories, explore our own Unitarian Universalist faith, and engage in the journey towards spiritual formation. As one of the worship leaders, I also preach, teach , and lead rites of passage ceremonies for the community.
