In tandem with Combined Worship with DeKalb UU’s and a Potluck Picnic
Our Ingathering and Water Communion Service always marks the start of our church year. We celebrate coming back together by pouring out water from our summer experiences. Some families share water that they’ve saved from a special occasion or meaningful experience, others offer water that they’ve collected while traveling, and members also bring water that is symbolic of summer happenings. Combining the water is a ceremony that represents how time spent apart is now joined back together in community. If you’re new to this celebration, we hope this announcement gives you time to think about or plan your sharing.
Adding to our celebration, the UU Fellowship of DeKalb will join us for our worship service and our choir will join their choir – magnifying the joy of being together. The service will start at 11:45 to allow travel time for the DeKalb people and immediately after the service will be a Potluck Picnic. … Our UUFD guests will be bringing the desserts.
There will be more information about this service before the end of August…. We will need willing hands to help make this happen … and that service will also part our communal sharing.
