Summer Services

During the summer months our services are lay-led in The Commons, a lovely air-conditioned room on the second floor, accessible by stairs or elevator. Congregants offer a variety of topics dear to their hearts, and cover a wide range. Summer services are more informal than the rest of the year. The diversity of styles and themes is rich and stimulating.

Prior to the service, we gather for breakfast “nibbles” and conversation. Childcare is offered each week.

All are welcome. Please join us!

When:  Summer services begin late in June, and continue until regular services resume early in September. We gather at 9:30 a.m. for a light breakfast and conversation, and the service begins at 10: a.m.

Where:  Summer services are held in the Commons, an air conditioned upstairs meeting room accessible by stairs and an elevator.

What: Summer services are lay-led and include music and child care.

2016 Summer Schedule: As usual, upcoming services are listed here and recent services here.

Who is responsible for what: The table showing who is signed up for which duties can be found here on the private Village website (for registered members/friends/staff only).

Some typical recent summer service topics:

  • “’You can’t be 98 forever!’ and other truths discovered with difficulty.”
  • “Living Our Faith”
  • “The Long Journey – the poetry of Rumi”
  • “The House of You”
  • “Is respect one size fits all?”
  • “How a committee can stay friends when the pressure is on”

And every summer session ends with our annual Poetry Jam, where congregants share favorite poems, from the ridiculous to the sublime.
