Ingathering Water Ceremony

Sunday, September 7, 2014

As you travel this summer, or from a place that is special or sacred to you, remember to collect a small vial of water. Then bring it with you to church, on September 8, where we will “merge the waters: from around the world during our annual Ingathering Water Ceremony.


Vesper Services - a new worship opportunity

 Nourishing our Souls through Sound and Silence Services

Beginning Wednesday, September 10

The worship will be patterned somewhat on the Taize’ Monastic Worship in France, the spoken word, using music, and silence. Readings, scripture and poetry will be presented by the leaders. Simple songs, chants and rounds will be sung by those who wish to participate.  Silence will follow each segment of sound. This pattern will be repeated several times during the evening.

Attendees are requested to arrive and depart in silence.  There is no plan for social time, but worshipers are encouraged to linger in silence after the service.

 This service serves as enrichment for our congregation, especially for those who are unable to be present on Sunday morning, or those who teach church school.

 All teens and adults are welcome to join in this quiet time.

At this time, child care will not be available. Questions can be directed to Connie Booth.

Ingathering Sunday and Water Ceremony

Revs. Bill Gupton and  Leslie Woodward


Once again we return to community following a summer of comings and goings, to celebrate the vital connections we share as a congregation, and as human beings. Please bring the water that you have collected over the summer (or some water from your faucet at home) to this intergenerational ritual of sharing. We will pour our waters, from all over the world, into a common vessel – a chalice – symbolizing our unity within community. Also this morning, our HUUC Choir, under the direction of Interim Music Director Les Tacy, returns to bless us with wonderful music!
