COVID-19, Coronavirus information: We are Currently Holding InPerson Worship. Masks are Not Required but may be Worn & are Encouraged for those with health concerns

Greetings! Grace and Peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

“I implore you, good Jesus, that as in your mercy you have given me to drink in with delight the words of your knowledge, so of your loving kindness you will also grant me one day to come to you, the fountain of all wisdom, and to stand for ever before your face.” [prayer of the Venerable Bede, ca.700 AD]

Today, we are experiencing a life-defining event in our lives, one not seen since the Spanish Flu Epidemic of 1918, 104 years ago. The world as we know it may seem as if it is spinning out of control—but rest assured, it is not!  God is withus, Immanuel, and God is in control…. so rest in God’s Almighty 

Please remember that Anxiety generally arises out of sense of “lack of control.”  Do not waste your spiritual energy on the things you cannot control, instead focus on what you can control. 

We ARE holding "in-person" worship services of Holy Communion at 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. with limited choir and a single adult Crucifer. We do NOT have Sunday School or Nursery at this time.

Attendees are NOT required to be masked, however if you or family & friends who are close to you have fragile health conditions, you are STRONGLY encouraged to remain Masked for yourself and those you love.

"Communion-in-one-kind" [the bread and Body of Christ] may be received alone or with the pre-consecrated wine available in the small serving cups.  Or you may pray the Prayer for Spiritual Communion found inside the back cover of the Book of Common Prayer found in your pew or you may simply come forward to receive a blessings instead.

We Have Returned to a Hospitality Hour following our 10:15 a.m. service.  The "FIRST SUNDAY" will be along the  lines of our traditional Coffee Hour.  All other Sundays will simply be Coffee, Lemonade, and Cookies.
