Strasburg Presbyterian Church Kicks Off the Summer Festival of Worship on July 5

You are invited to join congregations across the Presbytery of Donegal for an online Summer Festival of Worship.

Each Sunday from July 5 – September 13, one of our congregations will host online worship for the presbytery. All other congregations are invited to join that church for worship that week. It’s a great way to become more connected as we join together in worship. 

We have twelve congregations lined up and final details are being confirmed. The entire Festival list and access information will be sent out next week.

Communion will be celebrated with
Strasburg Presbyterian Church on July 5
Please gather up elements for you and fellow worshipers – bread/crackers and juice/tea or even water.

Let’s celebrate this wonderful opportunity to join together with our sisters and brothers in faith across the presbytery! And it’s a terrific way to handle the Sundays when a pastor is off for vacation or study leave and it’s difficult to provide pulpit supply during this time of disruption. It’s a way to benefit the congregation by allowing the pastor to devote time to other projects rather than worship/sermon preparation.
Sign Up for Your Congregation
to Attend the Summer Festival of Worship

Signing up to participate in the Summer Festival of Worship is easy!
Pick the Sundays that your congregation will participate, meaning that you don’t need to provide worship that day.

The information for Worship Festival Hosts for the entire summer will be posted on the presbytery website, and the information for the coming two weeks will be sent out each Thursday. There will also be a selection of pre-recorded “Encore” Worship Services from previous Sundays available to you, if you would rather that your congregation have the service available to them before Sunday morning.

In order to register your congregation to attend on your chosen Sundays, simply fill out this quick SurveyMonkey form . This will let the presbytery and the host congregation know you are planning to join them and allow your congregation to be greeted by name. If you need to have your congregation join you haven’t signed up, that’s perfectly fine too.
Coming Up:
Associate Pastor's Clergy Group
Serving as an associate or assistant pastor provides its own set of unique challenges and opportunities in ministry. Having a safe environment with others who understand your position can be extremely helpful, particularly during difficult seasons.

That’s why for the next two months, Samaritan’s Clergy and Congregation Care program is waiving the fee for associate pastors and assistant pastors to meet in an ecumenical, facilitated group with peers.

The group will provide an arena to talk about the challenges, joys and sorrows related to ministry, as well as to test ideas of how to best serve congregations. Additionally, these sessions will provide a safe space for clergy to be vulnerable with trusted colleagues who know where they’re coming from.

Sessions will be facilitated on Zoom by the Rev. Don Hackett. The group will be limited to 6 participants, who will collaboratively determine the frequency and tone of these sessions. After the initial free sessions, participants can elect to continue with the group for a monthly fee.

If you’re feeling stressed amid this trying time, or just want to join with others, click below today to email Don and sign up for one of the 6 openings.
