This service will focus’ on the beauty of “our ranch” style campus and nature around us. This year our flower communion will be a “get your hands in the dirt” experience. We will be starting our service in the Onion and then moving outside for a gardening ritual and picnic.
This year we will be celebrating water communion in a different way. We will celebrate the life that water has given us and how we can use water to give life to another. Many people who are homeless will not have access to clean drinking water. (More info in our homepage)
