Summer offers opportunity for creativity and fun like no other time! Summer offers the opportunity to experiment with new possibilities! Full and busy schedules makes regular participation (or any participation) in church education programs impossible for most of us. But we're still in worship regularly, so...... Worship services at First Congregational this summer will intentionally include faith formation/educational activities. Our services will begin and end in traditional and familiar ways, but the center of each service will offer something new or slightly different each week.
Services may involve movement, art, contemplation, conversation, testimony and more. Some of these ideas will work. Some of them will undoubtedly fail. But when God's people try new things, God is always glorified, new learning takes place, and we grow together in a deeper understanding of how the Holy Spirit is active in our midst. Art, Ritual, and Service will be the monthly themes in June, July, and August, as we explore what it means to be a neighbor. Together let's dive into summer worship 2019, and discover what God has in store for us!
