Service for October 26th, 2014 - What Love Looks Like in Public - Suzy Ujvagi



VILLAGE KIDS, age 4 through 4th grade, will be in worship through the opening music and then our Village Kids leader, Megan Kemerley, will escort them to the Village Kids room.  Parents or guardians, please pick up your children at the Village Kids room immediately following the service.  Supervised child-care is also provided for children 3 and under with Dana Rood.

 Our guest preacher today is Suzy Ujvagi, the Faith Organizer for Equality Ohio. Suzy is working tirelessly to pass protections through the Ohio legislature so that LGBT people will not suffer housing and employment discrimination. Suzy has a Master's of Divinity degree from Union Seminary in New York City and a Masters of Social Work from Hunter College School of Work in NYC. She is a graduate of the University of Toledo and Notre Dame High School in Toledo. She is the owner of a pet dog named Edmund whom she adores. We welcome Suzy to The Village today!
