    2020 Events Calendar

    Star Party ~ Telescope Night

    Starts at 7:45 pm

    Location: Room 113 & the lawn

    Out of concern for the physical health and safety of our congregation and wider community due to the threat of the Corona virus, Session (Church Board) has voted to discontinue Sunday worship and all other church gatherings until further notice.

    Spend time with three amateur astronomers and look into their telescopes to see the Pleiades and Orion — the stars that God was pleased to describe to Job — and you’ll see that there’s a lot more to them than Job could have guessed. Stay late enough and you may get a look at Jupiter, the king of the planets. In between, we’ll look at “open” clusters of bright young stars and “globular” clusters of thousands of ancient stars, and maybe a galaxy or two.

    We will start in Room 113 and watch a short NASA video before we move onto the lawn after dark. Because optimal sky conditions require a clear night, let us know you may join us by registering here so we can send out an email the day of the event confirming the conditions are right or announcing an alternate date.
