Groveland Fellowship holds services several times a year in recognition of specific events. In the fall, we have our Welcoming Back service, using water as a symbol of coming back together after a summer away. Around late October we have a Day of the Dead service. In December, we celebrate a solstice service usually accompanied by a potluck. In May, we have a Flower Ceremony where we all bring flowers for a community bouquet, and where we welcome new members in a formal book signing.
Other services that are recurring, although not necessarily yearly, are: Poetry Cafe, Music Sunday and Drumming.
