Many of us have missed our joyful singing of hymns together on Sunday morning, so we're having a real hymn-sing, outside, on Friday evening, October 1st. We have reserved Longs Park Shelter from 5:30-7:30 pm, so we'll have time for a fellowship potluck together, followed by singing as many of our favorite hymns together as we can before it gets too dark to see, or before we wear ourselves out with the songful efforts. Bring your own table service, plus food you'd like to share, plus a lawn chair if you'd like. Please DO bring a mask, since we will need those for the singing portion of the evening. Keyboard and hymnals will be provided. Come and join us for food, fellowship, and song together!
With everything going on in our world, our congregation roots my life in many ways: worship, friendship, service, justice, prayer, support, love. Our church is that stream of water which nourishes the soul and keeps us connected to something deeper within ourselves.
What keeps you rooted right now? Is it family? Is it prayer? Yoga? Sunday worship? Please take a minute to help us with a church project by completing the statement “I am rooted in _______” or “We are rooted in _______”. Be as creative, serious, or silly as you wish. Take a photo of you with your statement and submit photos online at http://www.uccmanhattan.org/upload-portal. Photos will be compiled into a church montage to be shared during our stewardship campaign. You can print the pdf sheets, or you can create your own. Fill out the blank either individually, as a family, or both!
We will also be taking photos after worship on Sunday, September 19 and Sunday, September 26. Look for Kendra Kuhlman on the front lawn and take a moment to write down your response and let her snap a photo! Thank you!
