Water Communion Ritual & Start of the Church Year
On Sunday, September 13th, we will celebrate the start of the church year with our Water Communion ritual. We will gather in zoom, so this year’s ritual will be shared together virtually from our homes. I invite you to bring a small amount of water to worship with you from somewhere local: the sound, a stream or lake, collected rainwater, or water from your hose or faucet. In our ritual we will be receiving blessings and offering blessings for the year to come.

September: What does it mean to be a People of Renewal?
This month join us to explore the theme of renewal. To renew: to begin again, to restore, replenish, or recommit. At the opening of each church year, we renew our commitments to each other and our church community. We renew our energy for another year of journeying together. This month we will also work with the questions: What renews our spirits? How can we practice renewal? What is the relationship between forgiveness and renewal? Join us to explore our faith together.
