Testimonial by Stephanie  Measzros
I love People’s Church because the first time I visited with my husband Chris and 3 year old Eliza, people smiled warmly and said “hello”, and “welcome to People’s Church”. I love this church because, early on, when I shared my fear about 2nd daughter Isabel’s breech position and an imminent C-section, several people spoke with me kindly, letting me know they would keep us in their thoughts. I love People’s Church because my kids have learned much about the world’s religions, allowing them to contrast and compare them and make their own decisions about what makes sense. I love this church because my kids have had a thorough and comprehensive sexual education here, giving them the tools to make educated choices in relationships, and to feel comfortable with their own sexuality.

I love the church’s commitment to honoring children at each stage of their development, especially through the intensive Coming of Age Program, which was so impactful to both of my girls. I love being part of a congregation with so many opportunities for service, and I feel good giving of myself in the RE Program, Women’s community and church events like the Holiday Bazaar, as well as sharing my music with the congregation. I love this place because I have come to know so many supportive, interesting people through the 15 years I have attended.

I give financially to this church because I am an active part of it, and I get back far more than the dollars I give. I am not sure you can put a price tag on my daughters’ OWL and Coming of Age experiences, the support that has been freely given when needed, the friends I have made or the acknowledgement I have received for what I have to offer and who I am as a person. I support People’s Church because it is a place I hold dear, because it has been a kind and loving learning environment for my family, because it is my religious home.
