Compline, the last office of the day, has been meeting via Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 9:00 p.m. for the last 14 months. It has been such a valuable time of prayer and fellowship for many. We are going to take a short break for the summer.

Whether you were a leader or an attendee ~ thank you for coming together for a meaningful time of prayer. One member expressed that this was her only point of connection during a time that she was completely isolated. We are so grateful for this time together!

 

 


 

Many of our parishioners have not been able to access the Sacrament for over a year now. Our Deacons have proposed a system where individuals or couples or families could have a private communion by appointment. It would be an abbreviated service, about fifteen minutes, and you would receive the Sacrament in both forms. Please contact the church office if you are interested and we can get your appointment scheduled.

Dear Friends,

The early church came together across previously unimaginable social and political boundaries in the name of Jesus for mutual support, encouragement, and to grow in the knowledge and love of God.

Since we now know how to be as safe at church as we are at the grocery store, the Vestry has decided that we will resume in person worship at 9:00 a.m. on January 10, 2021, on the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord. It seems fitting that the day when Jesus goes public in ministry is the day that we will resume our public worship as well. We will take reasonable and effective precautions to keep everyone who comes safe -- including wearing masks, helping people maintain safe distances, and keeping the services relatively short.

We sincerely hope that people will feel comfortable and safe returning to in-person worship just as children are returning to school and some businesses are reopening with new precautions in place. Even so, some will not feel safe or face a greater risk, and so we will provide a Zoom link and Facebook live stream to the in-person worship as a way of keeping our community together in worship.

This has been a long journey that is not quite at its end, but I am hopeful, along with the Vestry, that we will be able to travel this last stage together with a renewed sense of hope and purpose in our mission to share the love of God with all the world.

Benjamin+
