Service on Sunday, March 22, 2020

posted in: Worship | 0

Dear Friends,

I hope you are all doing well in these strange times due to COVID-19. Isolation may have physical health benefits, but it leaves much to be desired mentally and spiritually.  Please do what you can to stay connected- and let the church know how we can help.

One thing we can do is return to Sunday worship.  After a week of silence, Sunday worship will return this week, though in a different form.  We will gather virtually at 9:00 a.m.for the service of Holy Eucharist.

To abide by the conditions of the present state of emergency, those present in church will be limited to the small number needed to conduct the service.  Everyone else is encouraged to join by tuning in on YouTube Live.  If you have not already done so, the steps to get ready for this are simple:

1)  Click on this link to Deacon Cecily’s sermon from last Sunday.

2)  Just below the video, click on the red Subscribe button.

That is all you have to do!  Once you are subscribed, you will receive electronic notifications whenever we are broadcasting.

See the service for Fourth Sunday in Lent – March 22, 2020 via video from YouTube and also see the accompanying service program.

This is clearly not our normal way of doing church.  Nor is it ideal.  Please be assured that the Bishop, the clergy, and many others are churning away on creative ways to keep up united as the Body of Christ.  We have all received the blessing of cleverness – we just have to find ways to apply it!  Expect to see us try more new things and please bear with us as we find our way through unfamiliar territory.

And as always, please keep the sick and those who care for them in your prayers.  I will be very glad to be with you again – even virtually – this Sunday.

Peace – and be well,
Rev. Dr. Howell Sasser, Jr., Rector
