Week of July 5-11, 2020

Hope, in the Summer of 2020


This Sunday, July 12, we will will meet OUTDOORS! in three separate locations with two Gathering Groups** per place.

We will share liturgy (link), communion, and cultivate a conversation around hope, highlighting one new question each week.

Our discussion material for Sunday the 12, shared to Gathering group facilitators, is provided by David Morrison. You can listen to his meditation from last Sunday’s zoom church on our website: here.

To keep us physically-distant, and safe, we will follow these protocols:.

* Bring your own chairs and place them 6′ from other households
* We won’t be singing
* The host will provide each household with its own bread/cup for Communion

On Outdoor Sundays we plan on having a Small Group Zoom for those who for health reasons cannot gather in person. Contact Angela you’d like to be part of this group (email).

Caring for our Children and Youth

Because it has been harder to connect and gather the children during this time of ZOOM services and physical distancing we want to be proactive about including them and fostering them in their faith. Angela and Anne are looking for three people for a focus group about the spiritual formation of our children and youth at the beginning of August.

Please contact Angela (email) if you are interested.
