Suggested donation $5 (venmo @alaynamarie) to help cover food or bring a drink or a side to share. Can’t wait to see you there!
Evensong Service July 10
Leaning into our summer prayer tradition, we are excited to offer another Evensong service on Sunday, July 10 at 6:30 pm. First, we will pray Evensong, a beautifully sung Evening Prayer service from the Book of Common Prayer. After Evensong, space will be made for you to engage, at your own pace, with several guided prayer stations designed to lead us toward prayer for reflection, rest, repentance, and renewal. There will also be space for fellowship and reflection in the courtyard afterwards. Childcare is available with registration.
