DIVINE DINERS
Charlie Wilson is hosting Divine Diners at Teak Neighborhood Grill
(901 S Orlando Ave, Maitland, FL 32751) on
Sunday, September 20, 2020, 6:00 p.m.

We are limiting the group to the first 12 to call Charlie and sign up. We will ensure covered patio outside seating. We will be seated at three tables of four people each to mitigate risk and attempt to enjoy each other's company at as safe a distance as possible. Please call Charlie Wilson 321-279-1089 to say you will be there!

CAUTION: You must feel comfortable in a group of 12 people with at least three other people closer than 6 feet apart and without a mask when you eat and drink. We are expecting that if you have come into contact with anyone with COVID 19 or are having symptoms that would be a sign of possible infection you will take personal responsibility and not attend.

Let Sheila Geha help you on your path. Sheila is one of our trained Walking the Mourner's Path facilitators. Mourner's Path is an 8 week course on dealing with grief and loss.

Please call the Church Office,407-671-4211, leave your name and number and we will have Sheila call you!
WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE
Wednesday Morning Bible Study to Resume: On Wednesday mornings from 10-11 we read selections from the sacred texts of Christianity. Robert McClure is a PhD in Latin and Greek and taught for many years at the University of California and Trinity Preparatory School in Winter Park. He has been reading the Greek New Testament for over 65 years. At his side is Jim Christoph, another veteran Bible teacher, whose PhD is in Hebrew and the Old Testament. There is room for a few people in the classroom, wear your mask! The class will be live streamed on Facebook and then it will be available online.

MASK TO MASK IN PERSON GATHERINGS
Return to In-Person Worship
September 13, 2020, 8:00 a.m. Outside in the Memorial Garden under the pop-up tents

Holy Eucharist Rite I with an abbreviated sermon begins September 13 at 8:00 a.m. The Vestry and Staff agree that the time has come for us to, as safely as possible, welcome you back to campus. We will begin with this service of Holy Eucharist Rite I as is our custom at 8:00 a.m. Communion will be distributed using a lovely wafer and wine combination pre-packaged chalice that is recyclable. The expectations from all who feel safe attending in-person are:

  • Masks will be worn at all times
  • Bring your own chair and maintain a safe physical distance of 6 feet between people of different family groups. 

We are hopeful that this return to the sacramental worship of the church will be safe and helpful to those who are in need of safe contact with others. The 9:00 a.m. Live Stream will continue for all those who do not feel comfortable coming in-person. Remember the safest form of worship is still online.
