The Worship & Music Committee is excited to announce that we will conduct worship outdoors in our lower parking lot, weather permitting, on the 4th Sunday of June, July and August. Mark your calendars for June 26, July 24 and August 28, at 10 am. Please bring your own camp or lawn chair; a few hard chairs will be provided. After worship, everyone is invited to “BYOB”: Bring Your Own Brunch! Pack your favorite brunch snacks and beverages and stick around to enjoy fellowship. If you would like to share your special musical talents for these outdoor services, please let Pastor Monica know! We will have electric keyboard accompaniment, thanks to the loan of a keyboard by Tim & Marti Larson. NOTE: A notice will be distributed by email on the Thursday evening prior to Sunday’s outdoor worship to notify you if the weather forecast prohibits a scheduled outdoor service.
The Luther Memorial Choir is taking a hiatus for the summer, but please look for many of our lovely congregational musicians to lend their gifts on Sundays in summer. In mid-August (date TBD) we will resume choir with a potluck and long rehearsal to look ahead at the music for fall. We'd love for you to join us! Send questions to email@example.com and let us know if you'd like to be added to the choir email list!
