September 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 2021-2022 program year at Third Church will begin with Rally Day on September 12!
We hope you join us for:
- The first day of Family Faith Formation Sunday School at 9:00am on the top floor of the education building
- Worship at 10:00am, with Chancel Choir, both in-person in the Sanctuary and online.
- A “Blessing of the Backpacks” liturgy during worship. Children and youth are encouraged to bring their backpacks, and adults are invited to bring their own backpacks (or laptop bags, briefcases, toolboxes or other ‘tools of their trade’) to participate in this blessing for a new year.
Because of the pandemic, we will not have our usual lunch under the big tent. Instead, we will try something new this year—following worship Sandy Gianniny will perform a bell concert on the Copeland Chime, and the Congregational Fellowship Committee will host an outdoor reception with frozen treats. You’re encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to sit on (or to just stand!) spread across the church grounds. Welcome home, everyone!
