Goings on at the Chapel, in photos

May 23's Administrative Council meeting included a well-behaved non-voting guest, canine Phillip, seen here with (left to right) Trustee Scott Anthony, Secretary Janet Snoyer, and Treasurer Jackie Nock. 

Left: Sunday,  Guest Organist Sungmin Kim (seen here with Pastor Robin and Sara Haefeli) astonished and delighted the congregation with his brilliant offerings, among them, Mendelssohn's Organ Sonata No. 1 in F minor, 4th movement. Right: Chapel Gardener Elizabeth Mount, watering the Peace Garden, was assisted by an attentive parent robin.

Sunday, June 9, was Pentecost Sunday. Here, Pastor Robin reenacts the scene for young disciples, when the Holy Spirit descended on the first disciples.

Saturday, June 15, was also the occasion for Historic Ithaca's That Old House Tour, Forest Home Edition. Along with several neighborhood historic homes, the Chapel and Parsonage were featured on the tour, with our Fellowship Hall being the base of operations.

Hundreds of people passed through on that beautiful day. Viewing the Martin Luther King Jr. photo installation was a moving experience for many. Ringing the Chapel bell was a thrill for others!

Sunday, June 16, Chapel members held a fond farewell reception for Pastor Robin, with cards and flowers, speeches and presentations, and of course wonderful food!
