Walk with us this summer


Sunday, July 15, 22, and 29
August 5 and 12 at 9:00 a.m.

Emmaus Walks 
An opportunity to have precious time together, to learn and reflect on a bible verse - all while talking an intentional walk on our serene and sacred grounds.  

Perfect for individuals and families - all age and abilities.

Beginning July 14th at 4:00 p.m.
Contemplative Prayer and Scripture
A contemplative prayer and scripture study.  Audrey Bennet will lead us through a contemplative method of prayer using scripture.  A perfect prelude to our Saturday evening Contemplative Service at 5:00 p.m.

Rest and Return - a Mini Retreat

Sunday, July 29th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Episcopal Priest, Jennifer Pedrick, and Interfaith Minister, Shelley Dungan, invite you to join them for an afternoon of peace, quiet and healing.  This spacious time will include 45 minutes of gentle yoga, silence for various forms of meditation and the opportunity to be nourished by Holy Scripture and Communion.

Suggested donation is $30.00.  Registration is required, as space is limited.  To reserve your spot, contact Rev. Shelley Dungan at or 860-965-9995.

This retreat is being offered free of charge to all parents of preschoolers - so they may find rest and refreshment.  We are glad to offer childcare if you need it.

Update on the Historic Church

The Campaign for the Historic Church has been launched!

Phase One (mold abatement, deep cleaning, air scrubbing, concrete floor pouring and de-humidifier installation) is done.  The air has been tested and deemed safe.  We are once again worshipping in the Historic Church!

Many thanks to all who worked hard to make this possible.  And many, many thanks to all who donated money for Phase One.  Without all of you, this would not have happened.

Now we turn our attention to Phases Two and Three and the Campaign for the Historic Church.  Please visit this page for details on what is going on and to learn how you can help.
