Harvest Dinner--November 11

 FallHarvest1Our annual fall harvest dinner will be on Saturday, November 11, at 5 pm. Appetizers and cider will accompany bidding at our silent auction and shopping at our newly added store. When bidding closes, dinner, cooked by Chef Ross Rogney and his helpers, will be served. This is always a fun-filled event and adds to our church coffers. Call for reservations if you haven't signed up at church!

Chamber Music

Arietta

The Congregational Church of Excelsior hosted a free afternoon concert by the Arietta Ensemble on Sunday, October 15, 2017. Featured were former and present members of the Minnesota Orchestra: Marilyn Zupnick (2nd from right in photo) and Mark Seerup (2nd from left) on oboe, Mary Jo Gothmann (left) on harpsichord, and J. Christopher Marshall (right) on bassoon. They performed a lovely selection of music by Mozart, Handel, and more. These marvelously talented musicians have graced us with their presence several times before, and we are grateful for the lovely, relaxing afternoon they provided.Save

Good Stuff Sale

GoodStuff2016Jeannie2

Our 2017 Good Stuff Sale was held Saturday, September 16, during Excelsior's Apple Day celebration. Church members contributed  antiques, collectibles, vintage and like-new clothing, fashion accessories, jewelry, art and crafts, small furniture and home accents.

The annual fall Excelsior celebration always draws big crowds of people strolling the streets of our charming town, listening to music, buying goods from booths on Water Street, eating from the food trucks, and coming up to the church to shop!

Outdoor Services

OutdoorServiceThe "church on the hill" in Excelsior hosted three outdoor services this summer on the second Sundays of July and August and on Rally Day Sunday on September 10. Our June "outdoor" service had to be moved indoors because of threatening weather, but our spirits were sunny. Attendees shaded space if they wished and stayed for a cool drink, cookies, and conversation after the service. Services in 2017 included these (take a look at the fun we had):

We'll hope to continue this tradition in the summer of 2018!
