Hello faith family! Happy Epiphany! January 17, 2021 is the Second Sunday after Epiphany. We will be streaming LIVE from St. Thomas’s at 9 a.m. on our YouTube channel. Here is the service program and the service program in large print, for your preview. There are paper copies available to be mailed. If you would like one, please let me know.
Please see our parish prayer list to this email. These names are read aloud and prayed for each Wednesday at the service of intercessory prayer, and sharing this list each week in the Sunday leaflet gives us all the opportunity to participate. Please take a moment to look over this list and send me any updates or additions.
Following the service each week in January, Fr. Howie will be offering Drive/Walk Through Communion and Prayers from 10 to 11 a.m. ALL are Welcome!
The much anticipated Lord of the Rings theme adult education will continue this Sunday, January 17, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. A ZOOM invitation will be sent to all on Sunday morning. This session will utilize “Tolkien’s Ordinary Virtues: Exploring the Spiritual Themes of The Lord of the Rings” by Mark Eddy Smith. Please contact Rue, Larry, or the office with any questions.
In this strange time, the church is aware that some of its members are struggling to make ends meet. If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to your church or online giving. See our Giving page.
At this time, all services and gatherings have been moved to online. Please do not hesitate to contact the office or Fr Howie with any questions or concerns about the decision to move back to online worship. Regardless of whether we are together in-person or virtually, we are connected by the Holy Spirit: Always together; never apart…maybe in distance, but never in heart.
I look forward to worshiping together on Sunday!
