September 14, 2014  New Beginnings
We each bring the river of our life into this great body of water that is community. This is a new year which always brings new beginnings, refreshed commitments and energy. This year we are starting off with a new minister as well. Part of what we bring to community through the river of our individual lives in times of new beginnings is apprehension, past hurts, excitement and hope. We will honor these and the start of our time together through the Water Communion.

We will not only welcome each other back after our summer
adventures but also welcome our new minister, Rev. Eve Stevens.  Each member of the congregation is invited to bring a small amount of water from special places or where some time was spent during the summer, and these waters will be commingled to represent coming back together at this ingathering service.

There will be a potluck after the service, please bring a dish to share and stay to learn more about Eve through the fellowship of food!

September 21, 2014  Mabon Service
A celebration of Mabon often called the autumnal equinox or
Harvest Home.  It is the second of three harvest festivals which celebrates
the fruits and grains gathered from our fields.  Day and night are of equal
duration and the sun is entering Libra, the Scales of Balance.  It is a time
to reflect on the balance in our own lives.  Judy Jerome is our Worship
leader.
