Dear Glen Mar friends,
I'm so grateful for the amazing love and care that went into the confirmation service on Saturday! A highlight of my time at Glen Mar for sure. How amazing to see 20 of our youth stand up to say "Here I am, Lord, send me!" The service will be shared on Saturday at 10 am here: https://glenmarumc.org/live-stream/, and you'll be able to see it then!
This Saturday, we'll have our first Vespers service at 7 pm in the Glen Mar parking lot. Folks can set up lawn chairs in every other space in the lower lot or sit in their cars and listen to the service on FM radio (station 101.5). The catch is we will not have it if it rains. I'll reach out to the folks who have RSVP'd if it looks like we need to cancel. I'll try to make the call as early as possible but I might need your patience and grace given the presence of summer thunderstorms. RSVP here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b4caaac2aa31-saturday. Masks will be required and we'll need to maintain 6 feet of distance between households. If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, we love you, but please stay at home. And...while we are doing all we can to keep folks safe, we understand if you don't feel ready to gather in this way. No matter where you are, you are part of our church!
Sunday, we'll start our August Family Worship Series - Playdate with Jesus! We'll have Holy Communion virtually, so you'll want to have bread and/or drink on hand so that we can all share in the party at the Lord's table. There'll be something for everyone - including wonderful music, meaningful preaching, and fun for the whole family! You do not want to miss it!
See you in person and/or online,
