May 31: Pentecost Picnic (Feast Day Celebration and Optional Bike Ride) -

This Sunday, we will celebrate Pentecost - our parish feast - at Keller Park again. The weather forecast is calling for no rain, mostly sunny and 70 degrees!

If you're driving, head up to the park pavilion after coffee hour - it's just a couple of minutes drive from church (click here for map). Head for pavilion 5.

If you're planning to bike, you may stow your bikes in the garage behind Archangel Michael Hall. Eric Saathoff will be at the garage during the first part of Liturgy to receive the bikes. We will have a snack after the service, then bikers will leave church at 12:15 pm. (Eric will provide maps.) Please contact Eric if you would like to help as a chaperone.

If you're biking and plan to bring food for the picnic, please give it to Bohdan Melnychenko, Joanne Bergman, Vera Proctor, or Howard French, who will deliver food to the park. (Mina Jacobs and Barb Pentecost will arrange food on the service table at Keller Park.)

We will have games for kids and music for adults. Everyone is responsible for helping with clean-up. Bikers will go back to the church on their own, unless there are volunteers to lead bikers back (3-3:30 pm). Please contact Oksana Voskresensky with any questions or concerns - hope to see you there!
