Ingathering and Water Ceremony

Welcome, welcome as we gather together to start our new church year in our traditional Ingathering Water Communion service. This Sunday will be a thoughtful, reflective day as we share the special meaning of the small amount of waters we have brought to share in our larger bowl – symbolizing our shared faith coming from many different sources.

You are welcome to write, in advance, your thoughts on the water you bring to the sanctuary – the significance of the place or the occasion the water has for you.

This Sunday will be a festive day as we gather and greet each other and feast together after the service at our annual salmon bake pot luck. Salmon, drinks and dessert provided.  Please sign up in advance and bring a potluck dish to share.
