In-person Worship to resume on Sunday, September 20
This week we received formal permission from the Diocese to move into Stage 2 of what they call "the Journey by Stages." This means that we can plan to resume in-person worship. Numbers will be limited to 25 in building at a time, so we will need all of you to reserve your place using "Sign-up Genius." The form to sign up will get loaded onto the website every Monday morning and links will be in the E-news each week.

Next week our team of volunteer ushers will be trained in the Covid-19 procedures and will be ready to welcome you to the building on Sunday, Sept. 20.

Please note: We will continue to live-stream our worship for those who will need to worship from home, and we are getting ready to start our fall programming with many opportunities to connect and learn via Zoom.

We are grateful to the Worship Advisory Committee and the Vestry who worked with us to prepare for this next phase. We will continue to meet with the Worship Advisory Committee to fine-tune what we doing in Phase 2 and prepare for the subsequent phases.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Cheryl and Paul via the church email:
