Water Communion Ingathering
Honor the waters that touch our lives: rivers, oceans, lakes, and tears of joy and sorrow. In this family worship service we will celebrate our coming together after the summer months. Bring water from a source that you visited this summer or find sacred and together we will create a meaningful water communion ceremony.
We welcome live steel drum music from musician Bob Lucas of Pan Loco Steel Band at this special service.

He started playing steel drums and drum set in 1989 with the Atlantic Clarion Steel Band and performed with the group throughout Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts.

Bob and Justin arrange all of the music the band plays.
