Join us as we celebrate the beginning of a new church season. This year on Homecoming Sunday we will once again hold a water communion as part of the service. People of all ages are invited to bring some water from their summertime journeys and adventures, be they far or near, to share during the service.
We will invite people to come forward to pour their water into a ritual bowl and celebrate the many ways we are connected by and through water.
Note: A great way to bring water to the service is in a used water bottle or jar. You do not need a lot. For the absent minded among us (and we've all been there), we will have water and containers on hand.
It’s a great time of year in New England when people relax and go on vacation and the church functions on a much more casual level. Unfortunately, with no services in July and low attendance in August, giving decreases during the summer, but the invoices and bills still need to be paid! Please remember the church with your usual contributions during the next couple of months so that we don’t have to dip into our cash reserves. You can mail checks to the church, drop them off in the church office or send them via the bill payment service of your bank.
