Summer Worship

E.C.O. - Episcopalians Celebrating Outdoors

During the warm months we take advantage of the waters God has given us and we gather for kayaking and potluck suppers.  These gatherings end with a simple Evening Prayer service.  E.C.O. gatherings are casual and a great way to invite new friends to join our congregation.  Stay turned for dates and times.  We will generally do one per month and on different waterways in our area.

July 2018

During the month of July, there is one combined Sunday service which is generally held at 9:30am.

The first Sunday of July (July 1)  we have Holy Eucharist Rite I at 8am and then we celebrate Independence Day with Mass on the Grass, an outdoor service held at Ware Church at11:00am.  Bring a chair or blanket to this service.

This service is followed by a traditional potluck picnic under our large outdoor shade tent, with games and activities for the whole family. Come enjoy old-fashioned fun like potato sack race and ring toss, and wear your red, white and blues to mark the occasion.

All other Sundays in July  we worship at 9:30am

On July 24, we follow the worship of Morning Prayer.

August 2018

On all Sundays in August we have two services.  8am Rite I and 10:30 Rite II with fellowship and refreshments between the services.
