Homecoming Sunday Worship Service
This is a new addition to our summer calendar; we will encourage the return of former or inactive members and friends of the church to celebrate the cherished memories of the individuals and mountain families who have built and sustained our beloved church for many generations. We hope people will stay afterward for a group photo (which we hope will become an annual tradition) and Soup Sunday.
COMMUNITY MEMORIAL SERVICE
This will be an interfaith event, with people of all faiths, including those with no designated faith, welcomed. We invite participants to share their losses and their grief, for both those that have died recently, and for those deceased years ago. Attendees are invited to bring a photo or other mementos of the loved one they are commemorating; these can be placed on the altar table at the front of the church. During the event, there will be a time when people will have the option to stand up and speak about their loved one, if they wish to do so. We fervently believe that the loss of a loved one is among the most powerful and universal experiences in our lives, and one that is most fully realized when in the company of a loving, supportive community.
INTERFAITH WORSHIP SERVICE
We will worship God through various practices, some within, and some outside of the Christian tradition. We will reflect on a God who is known by many tongues, in many geographic locations, and is called by many names. We are excited to experience this with you all; please bring a friend.
Wishing you a happy, healthy summer, & looking forward to being together again,
The Deacons – Frank (Head Deacon), Dana, & Pam
