Summer Services 2024


Join us in the Sanctuary for the more informal, intimate atmosphere of summer services! Thank you to Ministerial Intern Phoebe Eckart-Lee for her work organizing our services, and for all the lay leaders who are stepping in to give reflections, facilitate worship, and provide refreshments. Thanks as well to Shaylor Lindsay, Assistant Music Director, for coordinating the music for the summer. Child care is provided on the lower level.

Summer Service FAQ

What are summer worship services like?

During the summer services – from June 16 through Labor Day weekend – Follen invites talented ministers and worship leaders from across the region, as well as some of our own Follenite lay leaders, to lead us in worship that also includes beautiful music coordinated by Follen Assistant Music Director, Shaylor Lindsay. The services tend to be a little shorter in time, and attendance is often smaller. That simplicity offers a more intimate setting to get to know others in our community that you might not yet have had the chance to connect with.

Is there Coffee Hour?

Yes! After each service we have a Coffee Hour with lemonade and cookies on the patio on nice days or in the community center if the weather is poor.

Do you offer childcare?

Yes! We will have childcare on all Sundays for children up to grade 2, and children/youth are also more than welcome to stay in the Sanctuary for the service. Our Sunday morning Religious Education Program is on break for the summer, and will return with fun activities in September.

Our Ingathering service for the new church year will be Sunday, September 8.
