We celebrate the Beginning of 2023 with the words of Egyptian poet Hamsa Elfarash from the poem,

“New Beginnings”

Into each life will always come,
A time to start a new,
A new beginning in each heart,
As fresh as morning dew.

The past has its secrets, but the present does too,
In order to establish the future, we must do what we do,
In time we will find it and make happiness flow,
We just need patience in the beginning and in time we’ll grow.

The years will never take away,
Our chance to start a new,
It’s only the beginning now,
So dreams can still come true.


This in-person service takes place in the sanctuary at the JCSVV, located at 100 Meadowlark Drive, and will feature live singing by our musician Susannah Martin.


Please read the latest recommendations from our Covid Safety team from their meeting in December, as posted on our website. It contains details about the current status for our local area, including the increased risk of exposure to our most susceptible members at planned events. Individuals should make their own decisions with the guidance of their medical professionals. Thank you to everyone for being aware of the ongoing risks and for doing everything possible to protect yourself and others.


Previously-recorded services from September 2020 through April 2022, as well as more recent services from Fall 2022, continue to be available for viewing on our YouTube channel and may be easily accessed from the posting for that week’s service.
