"Water Communion Service"

led by Rev. Laurel Gray

Join us in celebrating the first Sunday of the new church year with water communion! We'll gather together our hopes for the year as we combine the water we've brought from home or travels. We will also do a blessing of the bags and backpacks to celebrate the new school year! So bring your bag, some water, and your hopes for this community.

We hope you will join us

to start the church year!

Updated COVID Policy

  • For worship: Masks encouraged - especially if you’re going to be singing - to protect our most vulnerable populations
  • For other events: the people organizing should determine best policy for the group/situation and will communicate that as needed (i.e. funerals, renters, small groups)
  • As always, please stay home if you have COVID, are not feeling well, or have been exposed to COVID
