This very Sunday is the Shrine Pass Worship Service, Potluck Picnic and a Hike. It’s your chance to commune with God on a higher level. Members of Eagle River Presbyterian Church will be holding an outdoor worship on Julia’s Deck off of Shrine Pass Road at 10:30 a.m. The worship service will be followed by a potluck lunch. For those who want to continue the fun or walk off the calories, lunch is followed by a hike up the Shrine Pass Ridge Trail. Julia’s Deck is about five miles past the parking area at the crest of Shrine Pass Road. Allow about one hour of travel time from the Eagle-Vail area.

Eagle River Presbyterian Church is building a new church home in Eagle-Vail. While the building is under construction, they’re worshipping at the Singletree Community Center on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. Call the church office with any questions: 827-5547.
