This coming Sunday, October 7th, is beginning to look like it may be a beautiful day for us to have communion and worship at 10:00 a.m. outdoors in God’s creation. We will enjoy using our new sanctuary porch for extended seating.
After worship, we’ll gather indoors for a BBQ menu including marinated hamburgers, Italian sausage subs, hot dogs, coleslaw and scrumptious desserts.
If you want to continue enjoying the day with us, stay with us after the meal for a time of meditation and chair yoga!
