Now that we are a Partner for the PAC, we share ground that has been made sacred by many groups over more than a few centuries. Its original users were likely Native peoples, the Clatsop and Chinook and later the Convent of the Holy Name. In 1930 the current building was erected and Trinity Lutheran Church conducted their services here for many years. In its function as a facility of Clatsop Community College, it became an educational and performing arts center. Within its walls, many different artists: musicians, actors, singers and writers have continued to offer their creative works to the community. We are joining the ranks of other creative groups, adding yet another fertile layer to this holy ground. Sharing holy ground means that we are learning to live with other groups serving the larger community with thoughtful and inspirational works of great worth. We join them in reverence for this opportunity to live out the original meaning of the word "worship" – to shape things of worth.
Michael Rowe will be our service leader and Bree & Sahalie Heavenrich will be our greeters. After the service we will share our monthly potluck together on the 2nd floor of the Elks Club at 11th and Exchange — don’t worry if you didn’t bring something; we always have plenty.
