Inter-generational Worship 

On a regular basis we are trying to "do" worship in unexpected ways and to engage all ages.  This may include special types of music (blues, spirituals, folk, etc...), this may include liturgical dance or art, and this may include alternative and more interactive forms of prayer and reflection on the scriptures.  We have also created space for younger children who don't want to leave for nursery to be able to stay engaged in the sanctuary while parents worship.  We're trying new things all the time in order to engage the diverse interests and needs of all those who come through our doors.  Some aspects of worship are ancient, some are "vintage" some are emerging.  It's a mix of old and new and everything in between.  We hope you might join us sometime...

Coming this fall... 
                              The BIBLE!

Beginning September 10th we will be reading the major stories of the bible from beginning to end over the course of the year.  One Sunday--one story at a time.  K-3 graders will be given a "Children of God Story Bible", written by Desmond Tutu, a famous former Arch Bishop of South Africa and civil rights leader.   4-7th grade youth will be given "the Action Bible" which is a graphic novel of the bible (think comic book genre), and adults will be encouraged to read along on-line or purchase "The Message" by Eugene Peterson which is written in contemporary and accessible language.  We will read through 52 stories from the bible over the course of the year and in worship and Sunday School, we will find ways to make them accessible in interesting to our own lives.

Youth & adults Volunteer at North Street Mission in Wooster & Hiram Farm Living & Learning Community.

We had a total of twenty youth and adults volunteer on two separate volunteer trips in June. Five youth and three adults volunteered at Trinity UCC Wooster for a week, helping each morning serve at Trinity's breakfast program and then volunteering at various non profits in the community and talking with speakers.  The week before, a dozen younger youth and adults volunteered at Hiram Farm (which serves adults on the Autism Spectrum) on Friday and Saturday.  Both experiences were wonderful and eye opening experience that will help us to become more engaged in our own community.

BLUES BAND SERVICE & FREE BBQ

Our very own Nick Marino and the Blues Chronicles will be playing during worship again on July 30th.  We will be celebrating all kinds of families that day with a BBQ including a vegetarian option.  Visitors and guests are welcome for the music and food to follow.  It will be fun.  We hope you join us.
