Fall Ingathering/Water Communion

In September, at the beginning of the new church year, we will be celebrating an Ingathering or Water Communion. Bring to the service a small amount of water from a place that is special to you. During the service we will, one by one, pour our water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, the person who brought it tells why this water is special to them. The water might come from summer travels or a watery place close to home. If you need or want one, small containers for collecting water are available at the back of the sanctuary. All ages are invited to participate in this tradition.
