Ingathering Worship & Water Communion: Welcome Home!



Sunday, September 11, 2022

10:30 am, live streamed from the Sanctuary

Reverend Catie Scudera leading


On Ingathering Sunday, we celebrate our water communion and new beginnings! Join Rev. Catie, Sara Elizabeth, Laura, and our new religious professionals — ministerial intern Darrah Bryans and accompanist Harold Fortuin — for a multigenerational service about welcome, inclusion, and belonging. Remember to bring water from your summer adventures, and if you’re worshipping on Zoom, consider choosing a water photograph from your summer to use as a Zoom background. We will also honor the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, and share a message from our denominational president Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray before the prelude. Remember that masks will still be required in the sanctuary, but the Parish Hall is “masks strongly encouraged.”
