Join Us! A Time of Gathering and Prayer
You’re Invited!

*Rain Date, Sunday, September 13, 5:00 – 5:45 pm

A Time of Gathering and Prayer will be an opportunity to
re-connect, share in (socially distanced) small groups, listen to sacred music, and have a time of prayer.

Currently we are considering this to be a one-time event, although we remain open to the possibility of additional such events in the future, if we have enough people willing to work on the set up, welcome, ushering, greeting, and clean up. 

We offer this invitation with love and with grace, understanding that some are not ready to gather in person. For those who choose to gather and those who do not, know that in the midst of it all,
God is With Us!
