This summer we will go to a two-service format with worship at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The early service will continue with Rite I (and no music). The 10 a.m. worship will have music and be a little more casual with Rite II and other liturgical formats. We will have plenty of music at 10 a.m., but the choirs will have the summer off. We begin the summer schedule this Pentecost Sunday June 4, and will continue through the summer. We will return to the three-service format, with choirs, in the fall.

“When the Soul wants to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it.” Meister Eckhart
SoulCollage® is a creative and transformative process developed by psychotherapist Seena Frost. SoulCollage® cards are created by cutting and pasting images on 5×8 cards. Through a simple process, the images speak through the intuition and imagination of the card maker. Each card has wisdom to share with its creator and in so doing, participants can experience a deeper sense of self and a connection to the sacred. SoulCollage® is fun! Come experience the synchronicity, sacredness and surprise of SoulCollage® in this afternoon workshop.
All materials are supplied. No artistic experience is necessary.
Saturday afternoon, August 19 1-5 p.m.

What is Godly Play?
Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!
The Church of the Incarnation is an inclusive community of faith, following Jesus Christ as a parish of The Episcopal Church. We are a downtown urban church. We recognize that Christ has no body now on earth but ours, and we are committed to carrying out Christ’s charge to love one another through service, worship and prayer. Our abiding values are those expressed in our Baptismal Covenant with Jesus Christ, and those values guide us in our life of faith.
We believe that Christ calls us to strive for justice and peace among all people while respecting the dignity of every human being. While we are partners in God’s work throughout the world, we are called in particular to respond to the needs for both bodily and spiritual nourishment of the community where we live, work, and worship.
The Episcopal Church is a member of the global Anglican Communion which has a common root in the Church of England. Anglican churches follow a middle path between the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant denominations. The Episcopal Church includes diocese in the United States, Mexico, Central America, Ecuador and Taiwan.
