WORSHIPING OUTDOORS

NATURE PRAYER SERVICE

FRIDAY, AUGUST 7 / 6-6:30 PM / LIVE ON FB & YOUTUBE

 We are going to go (virtually) on a very special walk through a small town with a large history – situated in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Nicknamed, "Old Towne" we will see the ruins of a neighborhood long ago affected by mining in the area. We will climb staircases that lead to non-existing homes and see how nature has reclaimed this space. There is a peace that now has taken over in this "Lost Community" that may give us insight into our present and our future. A unique opportunity to walk together in the safety and surrounding of your own home.
We open in silent reflection and are given subtle guidance on our virtual walk in order to come back and share our experience in prayer while ending in a nature themed poem.

HOLY HIKE (OUTDOORS)

FRIDAY, AUGUST 14 / 6PM JACKSON PARK

 We will begin & end our hike with a short reflection or prayer as we take a short walk through "Old Towne" Negaunee. We will climb staircases that lead to non-existing homes and see how nature has reclaimed this space. For many of us who grew up  around the U.P. this may be actually be your first time going into the caving grounds- so come learn some local history!  Spots are limited to 10 participants and pre-registration is required HERE.
