September 9th, 2018 

9:30am Sunday Worship 
Holy Communion

Old Testament Reading:

Genesis 6:5-22; 8:6-12; 9:8-17

Gospel Reading:

Matthew 8:24-27

Last Sunday, September 2nd, members and friends from seven congregations in Hillsboro attended what promises to be the first annual Ecumenical Community Outdoor Worship Event. We didn’t do an official headcount but we estimate somewhere around 150 people gathered on Sunday morning at Rood Bridge Park to worship together and to break bread together.

All seven pastors participated in leading worship and a worship team consisting of folks from several of the congregations led the community in song. The theme was unity and the mood was joyful! There was an abundance of good food and many people stayed right up to the point where we had to clear out to make room for the next set of groups who reserved the park shelters.

We got a clear signal that more opportunities for our communities to come together in the future would be welcome and appreciated. The churches involved included (in alphabetical order) All Saints Episcopal, Calvary Lutheran, Community of ChristChurch, First Congregational United Church of Christ, Hillsboro Presbyterian, Hillsboro United Methodist, Las Naciones United Methodist.
