- Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles
- A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation
- A meditation or prayer
- Readings—ancient or contemporary

SUMMER SERVICES BEGIN!
June 25, 2017 – The Gift of Being Together
This will be the first of our summer services. We will talk about the importance of having people in our lives who are willing to explore the “big questions.” Years ago there was “Wisdom Circle” and then “Covenant Groups.” Now we have “Soul Matters.” What is the draw? Please come ready to share your experiences with small groups.
