The "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):
- June 11--Blessing of the Quilts
- July 9--Blessing of the Children (complete with an infant baptism)
- August 13--Blessing of the Pets
We'll hope to continue this tradition in the summer of 2018!
