The folks at St. Laurence congregation are happy walk with us, support our repurposing pilgrimage and lease their Sanctuary, Parish Hall and Kitchen on Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Coffee will follow the service.

 

 We gather with a purpose: to connect with the Holy, to feed the soul,  to be centered and grounded in the love of Christ, and to be reminded and recalled to our sacred purpose.

We love to sing our joy, our faith, our hope, our lament, and our prayers in a unique blend of contemporary and ancient styles.

 We experience the presence of God in words and silence, in lively praise and majestic hymns, in drama and reflection, in ritual and surprise!
