LANDGROVE, Vt. – Looking for an experience, an escape, and, perhaps, enlightenment? We have the place for you! The Sunday services at the Landgrove Meeting House feature fellowship, music, lifted voices, and inspirational words. Set in a classic 160-year-old building in a pastoral Vermont landscape, services are held Sundays at 9:30 a.m. July 1 through Aug. 26.
Our service leaders are respected educators, activists, and ecumenical clergy who provide talks to help us interpret and understand our world. Scripture may be read and professional musicians provide the music. Our late 1890s Mason and Hamlin pump organ works beautifully and adds to the splendor. Refreshments follow each service on the lawn where lively conversations are known to occur.
This year, we will again participate in the statewide reading of Frederick Douglas’ 1852 address commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Co-sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council, it will be held here Wednesday, July 4 at 2 p.m.
The Meeting House is located at the intersection of Hapgood Pond and Landgrove roads, just a brief drive from the mountain towns and no more than a stone’s throw from Manchester. We kindly ask when you visit the church to park on the cemetery side of the road.
Please join us this Sunday, July 1 at 9:30 a.m. for our first service, a traditional hymn sing. We so look forward to seeing you at this and all our summer programs.
