Staying Connected as a Faith Community
O  God, who by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light: Grant that we, who have been raised with him, may abide in his presence and rejoice in the hope of eternal glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be dominion and praise for ever and ever.  Amen


Your Finance Committe met this evening and wanted to pass along a huge thank you to everyone. Our monthly pledges have held steady and in these uncertain times we find ourselves in good financial shape for the month of March. We also wanted to let everyone know that we have applied for the Payroll Protection Program that is a part of the CARES Act. We are awaiting approval of our application and with that will recieve funds to help keep up with payroll, medical insurance, pension and utilities for the next 8 weeks. Please continue, as you are able, to send in offerings to the church office. They will be counted and deposited weekly. You may mail envelopes to the office or drop in the secure mailbox outside the office. Thank you!- Junior Warden Sarah Tierinni

A prayer for those who feel isolated from others.
O God, look upon me with your love, for I feel so alone. I fear tomorrow and do not know what the future holds. Yet you have promised to be my friend and guide. Come to me now by your Spirit and embrace me amid my sense of isolation. In this time of special need, grant me a new awareness of the community in Christ that holds me and a strong assurance of your love, through Jesus Christ my Lord.
Amen.
