Enjoy worship-in-the-round with the invitation to participate in a gentle form of sacred dance. (Observers welcome, too!) These dances combine sacred phrases from the world's faith traditions, unison singing, and simple movements. All dances will be in English and will be fully taught – no experience necessary. Our annual picnic follows the service, so the day will be casual, celebratory and fun!
Come join Aaron Coe, Amy Falkenrath, and Debbie Leonard as they discuss music from intellectual and emotional perspectives. This interactive music service will focus on rhythm, harmony, and lyrics and how these come together to impact us as individuals, as a community, and in a worship setting. We will talk about music, meditate to music, be brought closer together through music, and discuss What Moves Us to Make Music?
