We Have Moved Outdoors

This is a reminder that we have resumed  our regular Saturday night service @ 5 PM using our outdoor chapel (weather permitting)   Bring your lawn chairs (or use our benches) and masks and join us for this simple service of Word and Sacrament.   Of course, if there are any weather challenges  and you are wondering if it is still happening,  check our Facebook page or the church website for cancellations.  If nothing is posted, we are on! And if worship is cancelled, make plans for dinner and view digital worship which will be posted later that evening or with the sunrise on Sunday. And yes, out of concern  for those with health challenges and the not yet vaccinated among us: --Social distancing and mask wearing continues - Hand sanitizer will be accessible - There will be no shaking of hands, hugging, or sharing of the peace - Hymnals will not be used. Everything you need will be printed in the bulletin. - An offering will not be taken but baskets will be left near chapel entrance for

Looking Forward to Outdoor Worship on Saturday Nights

It may be damp and definitely cooler for the rest of the week.  But the long range forecast is predicting a beautiful day Saturday.  We look forward to resuming our weekly Saturday worship @ 5 PM.  Weather permitting, we will be meeting in our outdoor chapel as we await the reopening of our renovated and expanded building. This simple, relaxed gathering is what some of us have longed for as we have stared at a screen for worship on and off for a year! We got a wonderful taste of this at our Easter Sunrise Service, but now (like last summer and fall when we gathered outside)  you won't have to get up so early! Also, our acoustic group Soulful Strings will be joining us to lead us in song in the weeks to come.   This is a different gathering from what we are doing on Sundays including the music and the celebration of Holy Communion (wafer only)  It's also different because we actually get to see one another!   IWe are assuming that the weather is going to cooperate this week.  Bu
