As repairs continue on our flood-damaged church building, we will hold our morning worship service and spiritual exploration programs at the North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier. This Sunday, October 1, worship start time will return to 10am. Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers during the service.
We have a tentative target date of reopening on Sunday, October 15 dependent upon completion of repairs to the fire alarm system and phone and internet connections.
For now, we are fortunate to be able to gather at a beautiful location near the North Branch River where the land is rich with early autumn blooms and a diversity of flora and fauna. One limitation of the space, however, is the smaller seating capacity than our sanctuary. Given the space limit, we ask that you sign up in advance to let us know you are attending. There is ample space to roam around the grounds of the nature center, but we will need to strictly enforce the fire code capacity limit on the Maxham Room.
We will also have the option to join worship remotely on Zoom. Just use the following link or meeting information.

For those attending worship in person, there are about 60 parking spots in the nature center lots. Parking is also available on Finch Road across from the nature center. Park on the right-hand side of the road with your vehicle facing Route 12. Three accessible parking spots are available using the service entrance on Route 12. Carpooling, walking, and biking are encouraged!
Don’t forget to RSVP to attend in person. We look forward to reconnecting and nurturing our spirits in our loving community!
With hope and anticipation,
Rev. Joan, Executive Team, and Staff
