Bayport churches plan ecumenical worship

In honor of Independence Day, Bethlehem Lutheran and People’s Congregational Churches, Bayport, are sponsoring an Ecumenical worship service at Bayport’s Lakeside Park on Sunday, July 6, at 9:30 a.m.

The public is welcome. Rev. Rich Larson of Bethlehem Lutheran Church will deliver 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 tradition going back to the celebration of America’s Bicentennial. Lakeside Park is at 2 Central Ave. in Bayport.
