CHURCH CALENDAR

UPCOMING WORSHIP

April 14, Music and Arts Sunday
This annual tradition is for giving thanks to God for all of the ways we express our creativity together! The choir will sing, Heather will provide a sacred dance, and the bell choir will be playing!! If you have any artistic or creative pieces that you have painted/made, please bring them so we can celebrate them in our chancel area as well as for a display in the Parish House after worship.

April 21, Earth Day Sunday Worship
As we worship we give thanks to God for the Earth and all it’s resources, both physical and spiritual. We also call ourselves into our vocation to protect the Earth’s resources and sacred nature as we continue to live through the effects of climate change. In the midst of this, we will celebrate the joy of the sacrament of baptism!

April 28, Joint Worship with St Andrews: Faith, Nature, and Storytelling
We are hosting a joint worship service with our neighbors and siblings in faith of St Andrews Episcopal congregation. Our choirs will sing together, Lexi and Reed will share worship leadership, and we will hear from a special guest! Madeleine Wright, a storyteller of Abenaki descent and a citizen of the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe will be joining us in worship. After worship we will gather with her for a community conversation and more storytelling during fellowship in the Great Hall.
