News for Jun 15, 2021
This Sun, Jun 20
This Sunday at 10 am, Marilyn will lead a discussion of Solstice celebrations, and we'll honor fathers. After worship, we'll have a church council meeting (which all are welcome to attend). Join us via Zoom a few minutes before 10 am Pacific.
Listen to last Sunday's sermon
Last Sunday, Rev. Polly preached about how our sacred spaces come to reflect the stories of the people who worship there. We visited several very interesting churches in France that incorporate local legends in surprising ways. Watch her message or see our worship slides.
July 4: Our next in-person service
Save the date for our next in-person worship service on Sun, Jul 4. It will be a similar format to last Sunday, and you'll be able to join on Zoom if you can't come in person. We are still learning how to do these hybrid services. If you have ideas or comments based on your experience last Sunday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
