UCC Worship in the Park

 – 11 am  Sunday, Sep. 25, 2016
Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park

Worship in the park

About 100 UCC’ers will be participating in Worship in the Park.  You and/or your church are more than welcome to participate also!

“Worship in the Park” combines a great worship service with UCC’ers from many churches and a super-size “church picnic.” This year it will be held on Sunday, September 25 at 11 am in the “Crystal Springs Picnic Area” of Griffith Park.  We’ll have a one-hour worship service followed by a BBQ and picnic.  We also have a “Kids’ Church School” for younger kids.

Dress, of course, is very casual and grass-stain resistant!  Bring sunblock, folding chairs or a blanket to sit on and some food to share for a big picnic.

Each Church will be coordinating bringing its own picnic food to share.  Those not coming as part of a church group, please bring hot dogs, hamburgers or veggie burgers for you and/or your family.  There will be plenty of other picnic food to share.

Make your offering check payable to YOUR HOME CHURCH and use your own church’s offering envelopes if you have them.

Directions are below.  There is ample parking, but carpooling is always encouraged!  It’s not only good environmental stewardship, but it also makes the day even more fun

Parking:

Our picnic areas, (B &C) have 15 picnic tables and are right across the grass from any of these 3 parking lots:

1)  just past the bathroom pavilion there is a parking lot (to your left).  Walk straight across the grass.
2)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right and there is another parking lot.  Walk straight across the grass.
3)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right again and there is another parking lot back towards the freeway.

Go slightly to your right and walk across the grass.

Any parking lot works.

These directions are overly detailed and guaranteed to get you there!!!  If you get lost, call Laurie’s cell @ 213-725-9208.
