Where is God?  God is in the air. We may not see it, but there are signs above us, below us, and around us all the time. But maybe we take that air and atmosphere for granted. What better way to call our attention to air and celebrate the holy breath of God than to worship God out of doors, enjoying God’s good creation?  This Sunday, May 19, our last Sunday of the Season of Creation, we will get to do just that: feeling the breeze, looking at the sky, hearing bird song and chimes carried on the wind, exploring in scripture, song, and prayer, God in the air. We will also formally welcome the class of new confirmands as full members into the church during this special service.  Rev. Dave Cozad will be preaching.

Our outdoor worship will take place under a tent on the lawn outside the front doors of the church. Chairs will be set up under the tent for worshipers, but you are welcome to bring a comfy camp chair or a blanket to sit on if you prefer and sunscreen is encouraged for sitting out in the sun.  There is handicapped access to this area so all may take part. Everyone is invited to come in casual clothes or to bring casual clothes to change into for the picnic afterwards.  Please bring a main dish or side dish to share for the picnic lunch.  A food truck will be in the parking lot for a surprise dessert!  PLEASE COME BE A PART OF THE CELEBRATION.

If rain threatens, we will move inside the sanctuary for the service.

“The spirit of God has made me and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” (Job 33:4)
