As children and teachers return to school, rhythms shift for families and even, sometimes subtly, for those of us no longer connected to academic calendars.  This morning we come together, children and adults, to celebrate our community uniting again after the adventures of summer.  We will honor the invisible threads that keep us connected no matter where we go or what we do.  There are two things to remember when you come to church next Sunday:

  1. Please bring a little container of water or earth from your home with you to church next week for our ritual gathering of water and earth.
  2. During the service we will offer a Blessing of the Backpacks for children and youth.  Please remind your children or youth to bring their backpack with them to the services next Sunday.

We look forward to celebrating together!


Services are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:45 and 11:30.  Nursery care is available.
