We'd love for you to join us!

We would be pleased if you joined us online and from the comfort of your home for church services via Facebook Live at 9:30am.

Here is a PDF of this Sunday's bulletin for you to enjoy.
From Cynde Bimbi:

Dear Clergy, Administrative Assistants, and Senior Wardens,

Our 236th Annual Convention will soon be upon us (November 20-22), and in a much different format, as this year our convention will be a virtual experience.

Bishop Brown has asked that we feature all churches at this year's convention with a video that will highlight each of our parishes. I need your help. Could someone from your parish send me three to five images that would include your parish, as well as candid shots (if you have them) of parishioners, clergy, and/or ministries? If you have any videos or video clips, please forward those as well. I won't necessarily use the audio, but good candid video would be great to go along with your images.

You may have these images or video clips on your cell phone, so feel free to text or email directly from your phone -- using the highest resolution possible (if it asks). Also, please don't hesitate to send more than is needed, as I will pick the images that will work the best in our story. Below is my contact information as well as needed formats and time frame:
  • Text to 302-345-9392 (please include your name and parish)
  • Email to cbimbi@delaware.church, with the subject line: photos/convention/'parish name'
  • Image formats accepted: jpg or png
  • Video clip formats accepted: mp4 or .mov
  • It would be great to have this as soon as possible, but please no later than September 30.
If you have any questions or need more direction, please contact me at any time. Do not hesitate to call when most convenient for you, using 302-345-9392.

Many thanks for your help,

Cynde Bimbi

Psalm 93

1   The LORD is King; he has put on splendid apparel; *
the LORD has put on his apparel and girded himself with strength.
2   He has made the whole world so sure *
that it cannot be moved;
3   Ever since the world began, your throne has been established; *
you are from everlasting.
4   The waters have lifted up, O LORD, the waters have lifted up their voice; *
the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.
5   Mightier than the sound of many waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea, *
mightier is the LORD who dwells on high.
6   Your testimonies are very sure, *
and holiness adorns your house, O LORD, for ever and for evermore.

  • On-line services will continue to be available through Facebook Live.
  • We will do our best to make it smooth, but there may be some kinks at first. We appreciate your patience when this process starts.
