What you need to know for each Sunday:
Our time together is casual, conversational, and intentionally shaped by a commitment to radical hospitality and a desire to foster mutuality - so it moves and shifts depending on who is present at any given gathering. Some significant constants, though, are our commitment to dialogue (as opposed to traditional preaching) and ending our gathering at the Open Table.
If there is inclement weather on a Sunday, we will make the call about moving to Zoom no later than 3:45 p.m. We will post changes on our website and send an email via our Social mailing list with the zoom link. If you are visiting that Sunday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the link.
Elizabeth St Sundays:
Park in the lot at the corner of Elizabeth and Trinity Streets and walk across the street to the parking lot next to the education building. Bring a comfortable chair or blanket to set up in the round for our gathering.
We will have outdoor childcare for babies & toddlers. Children and youth will participate in their own age-appropriate activities during the gathering.
Rockwood Park Sundays:
The park is easily accessible off University Dr. See map for parking information: Rockwood_Park.png).
Bring a comfortable chair or blanket for your household and a meal to enjoy at the conclusion of our shortened liturgy.
Childcare will be provided for toddlers and preschoolers on the playground. Grade school children and youth will participate with the adults in a shortened, intergenerational liturgy which will take place near the pavilion. At the conclusion of the liturgy, everyone is invited to stay, play, and enjoy a meal together.
Our Covid Precautions:
Because the rate of adult vaccination within our gathered community is so high, we are currently only asking that unvaccinated children (over age 2) and adults wear masks during our outdoor gatherings.
Those working with children will also wear masks in solidarity and as good examples for the children. Anyone else is certainly welcome to mask for their own comfort, but it is not a community-wide expectation while we are gathering outside.
