The New Milford Methodist Church recently began its summer worship schedule that features a Chapel in the Pines service.

The outdoor service in the pines -- weather permitting -- takes place Sundays at 10 a.m. through Sept. 2.

It features a blend of traditional and contemporary music with guitar accompaniment, a children's time and a message with the Rev. Paul Fleck.

In addition, the 68 Danbury Road (Route 7) church offers an 8:30 a.m. traditional service.
