June 11th – Special Old Time Worship Service
Please dress up and bring your favorite pie to share after Worship!
“Old Time Service” - On June 11th the Sunday morning church service will be based on what a service might have been like back in 1828 - the year our first church building was built. There will be no bulletins, no screens, no organ, and as few lights as possible. Hymns will be ones that would have been written by that time. Wine and grape juice will both be available for communion. Women and girls are asked to wear long skirts or dresses, shawls or aprons, and bonnets (which can be picked up in the narthex that Sunday) - no pants of any length. Men and boys should wear long cotton (like khaki) pants, vests or suspenders, and cravats or if you will be out milking your cows before coming to church that day you can wear long pants and suspenders or coveralls with your work shirt. Raid your closet, your parents' closet, your neighbor's closet or even the thrift store and do the best you can to dress as if we lived in 1828. It should be fun if we all participate. In fact, let’s make it a contest with a prize for the most authentically dressed man and woman. And if you ride your horse to church you will definitely win a prize. There is also a rumor that there will be pies and lemonade after the service. Just like today, food brought people together in 1828.
