Sunday Coffee Hour – September 20, 12:15 p.m. Online

Join us for a virtual coffee hour after our online worship on Sunday, September 20 at 12:15 p.m. in our virtual courtyard (aka your favorite Zoom location).
As any good Lutheran knows, one of the most beloved rituals on Sundays mornings is our gathering around the coffee pot after worship. As much as we love our coffee, we also love an opportunity for conversation and connection. Bring your own coffee (BYOC) and join us for an informal time of checking in with one another. Tea drinkers welcome. After all, we are an inclusive community.
Contact the church office for Zoom connection details.
