Bayport churches plan ecumenical worship

BAYPORT – To mark Independence Day, Bethlehem Lutheran and People’s Congregational churches in Bayport are holding an Ecumenical worship service in Lakeside Park at 9:30 a.m. Sunday. The public is welcome to attend.

The Rev. Rich Larson of Bethlehem Lutheran Church delivers the meditation. The monetary offering will be given to the Valley Outreach Emergency Fund and non-perishable food items will also be collected. The Bayport Community Action League will provide refreshments following the service.

Bring a lawn chair or a blanket. If it rains, the service will be at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

This cooperative service is a 29-year tradition going back to the celebration of America’s Bicentennial in 1976.
