Hello faith family! I hope this finds you well. Sunday, September 27, 2020 is the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost. We will be streaming LIVE from St. Thomas’s at 9 a.m. as well as worshiping in person. On Sunday, connect to our worship service at St. Thomas’s YouTube channel – this is the same link each week. Please subscribe and ring the notification bell (twice) so you never miss a service. Here is the accompanying service program, and the service program in large print. There are paper copies available to be mailed. If you would like one, please let me know.
Beginning this week, you will see our prayer list back in the Sunday leaflet. Please take a moment to look over this list and send me any updates or additions. These names are read aloud and prayed for each Wednesday at the service of intercessory prayer and sharing this list each week gives us all the opportunity to participate.
Following the service, the Christian Education seasons begins at 10:30 a.m. with a 4-week course “What we believe, What we share”, comparing religions. This will be held in-person in the church building, as well as, on Zoom. All are WELCOME.
Yesterday, I emailed an invitation to in-person worship for this Sunday with a link to a sign-up genius. Here is the FAQ about the precautions and procedures for doing so safely. Please do not hesitate to contact the office or Fr. Howie with any questions or concerns about this option. Each service will continue to be streamed, and I suspect many of us will still be participating from home. 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.
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.

I look forward to worshiping together on Sunday!
