Annual Labor Day Weekend Picnic & Worship, Sept 3

We’ll once again celebrate Labor Day Weekend by gathering for Sunday  worship at the Stone’s farm at 11 am in Orwell instead of CVUUS. The service is followed by a potluck meal, tours of the farm, music, and other fun activities for the entire family. Rev. Barnaby, the Stones, and worship team will lead a family-friendly celebration of our connections to each other through our relationships with the land and the food humans produce from it. Rain or shine.

Drinks: Cider, juice, water, milk provided.  Other food:  We’ll provide rolls.. Refrigerator space available.

Bring: a salad, side dish, or dessert, and your plates, cups, and utensils and a few extra chairs. We’ll have a tent, tables, some chairs, but could use extra ones. We’ll have some plates/cups in case anyone forgets.

Barn clothes & shoes: All are invited, but please if you have been working with or have any kind of fowl, for  disease control, please leave your barn clothes and boots at home.  Thank you.

Kids activities:  During the service there will be farm activities for the young’uns.  After the picnic there will be time for kite flying and games so if you have a game that’s easy to bring why not bring it?

Service: We’ll introduce our theme for the year The Journey Toward Radical Love and include poetry from Caitlin Gildrien. The service will start with a ceremonial feeding of the order of service to Matilda the Goat and include a Blessing of the Backpacks for starting your year.
