Gifts from the Body and the Spirit

On the first Sunday in August, everyone is invited to bring an example of your talent(s) or representative symbol of them, and lay on the altar during Communion.  Examples of what you might bring : if you quilt, bring a small quilt; if you can, bring a canned good; if you write music, bring one of your musical scores, etc.  On the fourth Sunday, you may pick up your item from the altar.

If you would like to request a hymn, please turn your request into Kim, Jane or David and we will try to work  it into one of the services.
