Summer Service Schedule Change (June 11)

After much prayer and discussion we have decided to shift our Sunday morning service
times to a summer schedule. Instead of our familiar times, 7:15 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 11:15
a.m., we will worship at 8:15 a.m. and 10 a.m. beginning on Sunday, June 11.

By shortening the time between services, we hope to give folks from both services the chance to enjoy
fellowship. So for our first Sunday on this schedule, June 11, we are inviting you to bring
something to share for our first Summer Service Breakfast Potluck. Please sign up here:

The 8:15 a.m. service will continue with the same liturgy used at the familiar 7:15 service.
The service will begin in silence but will have music during communion and a closing
hymn. The 10 a.m. service will be familiar to those who currently attend the 8:30 a.m.
and 11:15 a.m. services. Nursery care will be offered for both the 8:15 a.m. and 10 a.m.
services and we will continue our summer practice of not having Children’s Church, but
inviting our elementary-aged children to remain in worship.

Thank you! And we look forward to worshiping together this summer!
Grace and Peace,
Fr. Alex
