Casual Sunday theme: "Summertime!"

A "Casual Sunday" is a quiet morning of fellowship and reflection, with no formal church service. We gather in the Parish Hall to share stories, readings, poetry, music and videos on the theme of the service.

Video note: Since we have no Internet connection at the church, send a link to YouTube or other videos to Ward several days before the service.

hospitality: Gloria Foster

Sun 11
No Worship Service – Ashby 250th Parade

After much deliberation, the Parish Committee has decided to cancel Rev. John Pastor's service originally scheduled for June 11.

Ashby's 250th Anniversary Parade starts at 11 a.m. at Allen Field. Since an event like this only comes around about once every 50 years, we hope you will enjoy the parade!

Worship Service: "Flower Communion & Meditations on Time" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

A humanist wrote, "Time, like an ever-flowing stream, bears all its sons away". Yet there is an eternal aspect to time, a fullness we can experience, which counters this sense of finitude.

Today's sermon is a meditation on time and its meanings in a life fully lived.

Please bring a flower or two to contribute to the communion bouquet.

musician: Bryndis Schilling

12:00 PM
Church Picnic following the service

Join us for our annual end-of-church-year, almost-Summer potluck picnic. Bring lawn chairs, musical instruments, lawn games, and something to share for the picnic meal.

The picnic will be on Ashby Common, with our potluck food set out in the Parish Hall.
