The Parish Pen

Worship at The Fields at Renaissance Park

Back River is taking it outdoors on Sunday, July 7. Our church will be closed on that day so that we can worship in the park, under the pavilion, at 10:30 a.m.with our friends from Chase, Cowenton, Essex, Orems, and Piney Grove UMCs. We invite anyone from the community who would like to come join us as we experience God's glorious creation and raise our voices in praise. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on. A picnic lunch will follow. 

The Fields at Renaissance Park is located behind the Stembridge Community Center located at 99 Stemmers Run Road in Essex. 

Please Park in the area of the far right hand corner of the lot closest to the field.
