Join Reverend Anne Mason in our first worship together at the Ingathering Service this Sunday which will be a time of joyful connection! As we share the waters we bring from our summer — whether it be from a pond, an ocean, or your own kitchen faucet — we will share the dreams we each bring to our beloved community. All are welcome to join us for this multi-generational worship through story, song, and sermon as we come together to celebrate the beginning of our church year.
This Sunday is an All Ages service. All children are welcome to stay in the Sanctuary. The nursery will be open for babies and toddlers.
The anthem for Sunday will be Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker’s “Peace I Ask of Thee, O River.” Her ethereal setting of this famous girl scout song comes from the New Millennium Suite, which is a set of three songs for chorus and orchestra. These are traditional American songs that have been updated with additional lyrics. “Peace, I Ask of Thee, O River,” the second song in the set, features an accompaniment that evokes the flowing river with undulating arpeggios in the piano.
