GREENWICH, Conn. -- Celebrate the summer with jazz, Disney fun, worship, a picnic and fellowship at the annual Tent Weekend June 12-14 at the Second Congregational Church.

The free festivities are designed to delight people of all ages. Events will be on the church campus, 139 E. Putnam Ave., Greenwich. Activities will be on the lawn, or under a tent behind the church, where folding chairs will be provided. In case of rain, events will take place inside the church.

“Tent Weekend is always a highlight of our church year,” said the Rev. Maxwell Grant, senior minister. “It’s a time when we celebrate so many passages -- high school graduates, returning snowbirds, Sunday school teachers, grade schoolers getting their first Bibles – a great snapshot of our church family. And the cookout after church is legendary.”

The following events are planned:

  • The Greenwich High School Jazz Ensemble concert will be from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Listen to jazz standards, and if you like, bring your own picnic to eat on the lawn as early as 5 p.m.
  • From 4:30-6:30 p.m. Saturday, following a similar program in March, the choir will perform Disney selections, including songs from "Frozen." Come dressed as your favorite Disney character, and have your picture taken with Princess Elsa and Olaf. Join in a sing-along. Bring your own picnic as early as 4 p.m., and make your own sundae with ingredients provided.
  • A worship service will take place under the tent at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. At 11:30 a.m., there will be a cookout, a bouncy house and other fun, fellowship and activities for all ages.
