SUMMER WORSHIP - We will be having outdoor worship again this summer on June 17th, July 22nd and August 19th. You are invited to bring your lawn chairs or blankets to sit out on the north lawn for worship.

In case of bad weather, we will have worship in the sanctuary.
For the summer we will celebrate communion every week. On the first weekend of the month we will have risen bread and individual cup for the wine. The rest of the weekends we will have wafers for bread and practice intinction for the wine. As always we will have gluten free options for those who need it.
