Worship In The Park

Dear UCC Friends,

     As one of the newest churches in our Association and Conference, we of West Hollywood UCC would like to invite you to join us for what has become a fall favorite, “Worship in the Park.”  It’s a fun event combining a great worship service and picnic in Griffith Park.  Worship in the Park will be held Sunday, September 23 at 11 am. We have reserved a beautiful tree-shaded area in Griffith Park with lots and lots and lots of free parking (yes, there are actually three parking lots!)  We’ll have an hour worship service followed by a BBQ and picnic.

     Last year Altadena Community Church joined us and they had such a great time, they asked to be included again this year.  After our “Proud 2 b UCC” Celebration, a bunch of other area UCC Churches asked to be included too.   And, so as not to leave out anyone, we’re inviting you and your church to join us!  It will be a UCC fun-fest.

     Each church will need to bring picnic food and beverages to share, AND hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers and rolls for the number attending from your church.  We have 2-3 BBQ’s at the site.  Lawn chairs or blankets for the grass are always a great idea.  There is a huge play area for kids of all ages. 

     Exact driving directions (to the 1/10th of a mile!) will be emailed after Labor Day.  We will also post big “foam core” boards saying “UCC WORSHIP” with directional arrows.  For those who know the park, the reserved area is just across the road from the famous “Merry Go Round.”

     As for the offering for the day, each person should make out their check to their church and/or use their church’s offering envelopes.  We’ll also have plain offering envelopes for those who forget.  Each church will be given its own offerings.  We’ve done this before and it works great.

     We do not have a service at our church that day, and simply post a sign out front of our church inviting people to come to the park and join us for worship with tear off sheets giving directions to the park. 

     Dress, of course, is very casual and grass stain resistant!

     For more information and pictures of last year’s event, or if you or your church are interested in joining us, email me at dan@wehoucc.orgIt’s also a great way to get to know other UCC’ers from neighboring churches.

Hope you and some or all of your members can join us. 

Blessings, Dan Smith,
West Hollywood United Church of Christ
