One service only at 10:00am What Happened Here? Honoring Our Past.
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher
In our last full service in the current sanctuary, we take time to acknowledge the life transitions that have been honored here: memorial services, weddings, coming of age, child dedications. There will be candles lit during this service for the events in your life that happened here. Bring photographs if you wish. We will create a beautiful display of our life in this sanctuary.
Beginning with this service, all will be at 10:00 until September 8.
One service offered at 10:00; Structured activities for youth
One service at 10:00am Opening the Doors
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher and Kelley Trombly-Freytag
This will be our first service in our new sanctuary. It will follow the history of this congregation, beginning by our going through the Founder's Room (this congregation's first sanctuary) into the current sanctuary. We will have a short service in the current sanctuary, then pick up our hymnals, walk them to the new sanctuary, and place them in the racks on the new chairs. The choir will sing in both the old and new spaces. Our chalice will be lit in the current sanctuary, and the light carried into the new one where our new chalice will be lit. Please note, because there is only one service for this consecration of the new space, we will be crowded. Be sure that you leave the chairs for those who cannot stand. You will be able to use the stairs or the elevator to move from the Founder's Room to the current sanctuary, and from there to the new space. Two wheel chairs will be available for those who need them. When we leave the current sanctuary, we will each receive a flower to put into vases for the new space. Please bring a flower with you for each family member. Extras will be available should you forget.
