“virtual” discussion continuing Thursday, September 17, 7pm. Participants are provided
excerpts from the book for the discussion. Registration is required, and you may do so by

Sunday Services – As of this writing, we are planning to offer an outdoor, in-person,
worship on Sunday, September 20, 11am. These plans are subject to change pending
coronavirus conditions and weather on Sunday morning. Watch the Friday update for more
details, and feel free to call the church office on Sunday morning for up-to- date information
regarding the status of services for the day.
BRING YOUR OWN PICNIC – Persons attending our outdoor service this Sunday, Sep 20,
are invited, but not required, to bring your own picnic and enjoy some extra time together
on Walnut Hill’s beautiful grounds. Your picnic may be a simple brown bag sandwich or
a full basket, whatever your household might like. Bring everything you will need including
beverage, utensils, etc. Social distancing between households will be maintained, as well
as face coverings when distance cannot be maintained. Also, there will be no sharing of
food between households. Necessary precautions notwithstanding, we hope the spirit of
our traditional fall gatherings will shine through.
2020 “Virtual” CROP Walk, September 27 – Like many events, this year’s CROP Walk
will be different this year, including no large gathering and walk through downtown streets.
Instead, individuals and small groups are invited to walk in a distanced fashion, reporting
their participation to raise funds for hunger relief locally and globally. Walnut Hill will be
gathering a distanced-walk team. Each team participant will be sponsored ($35) by the
Walnut Hill Community Fund. So, set some walking time aside on September 27, and
watch for more details.
Ecumenical Sunday, October 4 – The annual celebration of Walnut Hill’s ecumenical
identity is going forward this year with a “virtual” gathering (via zoom) featuring the
Rev. Don Gillett,

us for conversation around the topic, “Ecumenism and Racial Justice.” The gathering
is scheduled for Sunday, October 4, 4:00pm – 5:30pm. Registration is required. Watch
for more details coming soon.
Sandwich Ministry – The Sandwich Ministry has resumed, and with it the need for
Sandwich Ministers to provide sandwiches for overnight guests at the Catholic Action
Center. Walnut Hill’s next date to provide sandwiches is Sunday, September 27. Use
reply email for more information or to volunteer.
