Worship Services

September 10 - Homecoming Sunday and Water Communion

Intergenerational Service

Our regular church service schedule resumes on the Sunday after Labor Day, September 10th at 10:00 AM. Traditionally, we celebrate Water Communion in which we pour together water that is or represents an important part of each person’s summer. During the ceremony, everyone comes forward to pour a few drops of their “summer water” into a shared container and briefly explain its importance. You might name a place, or an experience, or an event. This Water Communion is not about who had the most exotic summer. Rather, it is about mingling the experiences we had in the summer as an expression of our shared energy and commitment to worshiping together as we go forward into the new church year.


Homily: Water Flows On - As we pour water from our summer experiences into a shared container, we have an opportunity to consider just what each one of us “puts in the water” of our world and where it goes.


Our Second Sunday Collection will be given to the Houston Food Bank as they try to help families affected by Hurricane Harvey with food, water and necessary supplies.  Thank you in advance for your generous support.


September 17 -  Within Celebration

While we enjoy the completion of our Accessible Entrance addition, we can also recognize celebration as a time of both relief and reflection; satisfaction and possibility. This sermon will explore what sustains us in the endeavors and culminating celebrations of our lives.


September 24 - An Oath, A Pledge, A Promise

We make a commitment to each other every Sunday when we say our Covenant together. What do words ever mean - to our faith? to each other? to humanity in general?


Meet Our Minister,
Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
