 Journey: Embracing the Jostle and the Jovial

Join Rev Maggie as we explore our shared "Journey" through the lens of our Touchstones theme for July.

We've sure been on a wild ride, and it's time to sit and reflect on the experience of being both jostled and jovial as our life unfolds...


We'll also enjoy the MV Choir!

Here are some notes that will help to
enhance our worship experience
for all who are gathered together
both online and in-person: 

* All who plan to attend in-person in the Sanctuary must be fully vaccinated and willing to wear a ppe mask. 

* RE youth and adult attendees have received information from our DLRE Robert regarding their entry through the gate in the parking lot and their masking protocols. Because the children are unable to be vaccinated, we will miss having them with us in the Sanctuary for now.

* Our time of Offering will not include a passing of the basket, but we will provide those in the sanctuary with the opportunity to bring your gifts forward to place them on a special altar/table we will have set up. We will gather both financial gifts of support for MVUUC and also any non-perishable food items you wish to donate to the Beta Center.

* We will be honored to receive your Pledge Cards for our 2021-2022 Stewardship Drive on the offering table or in the drop box outside the Admin Office. 

* Coffee and tea will be available after the service. We will not be sharing food at this early stage of our re-opening. 

We thank our Worship Teams & Technicians who have gone to great lengths to imagine and reimagine our best ways to prepare for a wonderful worship experience for all whether in our Sanctuary or in our Zoom Room.
We also send a big Thank You to
our Greeters and Hospitality Team!
