As most of you already know, this Sunday July 12, we are opening our building for the purpose of Worship. You are invited to join us this evening at 7:00 p.m. for a brief Zoom conversation to go over the guidelines that have been put in place for our protection. Those guidelines were explained in last week’s newsletter, and we have summarized them again for your review. By now all of you should have also received a letter in the mail with the worship schedule and guidelines as well. Tonight is a good opportunity to review the guidelines and to ask any questions you may have. Please use the link for Zoom or come on by phone – information is below.
Our schedule for Sunday is as follows:
8:00 a.m. in-person worship
9:00 a.m. Morning Prayer on Zoom
10:30 a.m. in person-worship (This service will also be live-streamed on YouTube: see below for the link and bulletin if you are watching from home)
If you are going to be joining us for in-person worship please review the guidelines. I would encourage some of you to consider attending the 8:00 a.m. service, which is already smaller and provides an easy way to distance. We are allowed 25% of our capacity, which is 43 people, and includes myself, a LEM, and a person playing the piano or organ (at the 10:30 a.m. service).
Thank you to everyone who has faithfully sent in their pledge, I am very grateful for your commitment to this parish.
You may also access the bulletin for the service. This will be the same bulletin used all summer, so you only need to print once.
The Sunday readingsfor July 12 may also be downloaded so you can follow along.
Please note the live-streamed services will be recorded and can be watched at any time.
