Pilgrim Dreams: Summer Worship at Florence


This summer, Florence Church of the Brethren Mennonite is returning to the ancient tradition of worshipping on Saturday evenings. (The earliest Christians worshipped on Saturday evening, before the Roman Emperor Constantine made Christianity compulsory and Sunday the day of worship.)

During June, July and August, the church welcomes one and all for worship at 6 pm on Saturday evening, at 17975 Centreville-Constantine Rd., Constantine, followed by food and fellowship at 7 pm. All are warmly welcome to participate in this summer’s theme, Pilgrimage: Journeying with God.

In times of challenge and uncertainty, people are looking for signs of guidance, and we will cultivate the awareness of Christ on our journey as we share stories of our comings and goings, near and far, looking for the Divine in what is ordinary. Members will share tales of travels this summer to Congo, Paraguay, Germany, and Nicaragua.

The church’s first worship in the series, on Saturday, June 6, will be followed by food and fellowship at a centennial farm newly purchased by congregation member, Karla Kauffman. A potluck meal will be shared as we offer a farm blessing to the old Gleason Farm, on 15352 Gleason Road, just west of 131, at 7:30 pm.

For any of these events, please call the church office for more information at 269 435 5945.

  1. I like this quote from the bulletin:
    "...to wake up and to be more real in the world, our deepest dreams and visions
    must be awakened and united with God's dreams and visions for the world."
