The vestry and staff look forward to seeing you Sunday for worship at 9:30 for our Welcome Home service. For those who for important reasons, wisely choose to stay home, please do check our Youtube channel at 11:30 for the service. Also, for those joining us from home know that we miss you yet we are glad that you are staying safe for yourself and others.
After much prayer and conversation, I have decided that once a month we will be offering Spiritual Communion beginning this Sunday. This service will seem very familiar as it is our traditional Eucharistic worship with one significant change. No one will physically receive the bread and the wine, rather we will experience, in the words of our new post communion prayer, the "indwelling of the Spirit." In this age of pandemic by not receiving the elements we continue to protect our health and the health of others by reducing our contact with each other. My hope and prayer is that this service of Spiritual Communion will nourish and sustain us in new ways, while reminding us that by keeping our distance we honor the greatest commandment "to love our neighbors as ourselves."
As always, I welcome and encourage you to speak with me about our shared worship and our community life.Faithfully,Stephanie
