IThe Plaza is a new addition to the church intended to enhance the entrance, enabling greater hospitality for gatherings such as the receiving line for weddings or funerals. Open to the public, the Plaza includes sitting walls, perfect for reading or relaxing, and a drinking fountain for humans and dogs.
The church offers a free and open to the public outdoor summer concert series on select Friday nights during July and August. The concerts generally occur on nights other than when Dearborn is hosting its Friday night music in the park. Local musicians play for free or a small free-will donation. People are invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets and picnic supper, including beverages of your choice. Wine and beer are allowed, when consumed responsibly.
Sunday mornings, from June until Labor Day, we offer a 9am outdoor service. This short, just the essentials, service is perfect for those who want to worship but also wish to spend the day outdoors. It includes all the components of Sunday worship: scripture, prayers, music, a meditation, and Holy Communion, but within a 25 minutes service.
