Fall 2019 Schedule of Services and Activities

Sunday Service:

We gather each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship and prayer, incorporating lovely music into our service. Child care for those five years and younger is provided. Currently we are exploring the interest in having Christian Education classes for elementary children during the first part of our service. Please let us know if you are interested in helping and/or have children who could benefit from this experience.

Following the service, we gather in the Parish Hall for fellowship and delicious food, thus extending our community’s time together. Please join us on Sunday morning.

Wednesday Evening Service:

Each Wednesday evening, we gather at 7:00 p.m. for our midweek service. On the 2nd Wednesday of the month, we enjoy the music of the Taize community in France with quiet readings interspersed throughout. Candles and time to for reflection make this a very calming time.

On the other Wednesday nights of the month, we celebrate a quiet, contemplative Holy Eucharist. All are invited to worship with us mid-week.
