Suspending In-person Worship and Gatherings
Out of a desire to slow the spread of coronavirus, Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows has asked all churches to cease in-person worship and gatherings until at least the end of March. Please know this decision was not made lightly but with much prayer, conversation, and public health advice around social distancing, vulnerable populations, and slowing the spread to ease the burden on our healthcare system. Gathering in community for worship, fellowship, formation, and outreach is both sustaining and transformative to our spirits. There are other ways to gather though; we will practice them and God will be with us. I confess though that I grieve the loss of sharing the sacrament of communion with you; it is only one way that God dwells in us, but it is one that is central to our common life. We will be the church in new ways in the time ahead and I know that God will bless us through the experience but there are also losses to acknowledge.
We are taking steps to keep us connected and supporting each other during this time. For more information, please use the link below to read a letter from our clergy and vestry.
You are welcome here.
You are welcome here. We believe the love of God is for everyone – no exceptions, no exclusions. Whoever you are, whatever your background, wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we believe there’s a place for you in our community of faith. Two thousand years ago, the Apostle Paul wrote to churches in a region of modern-day Turkey called Galatia. Paul reminded those to whom he wrote about their experience in the early Christian community - how God’s love had broken down the barriers that separate people from one another. He said that in Christ’s family there is no division among people and that all are equal. (Galatians 3:27-28)
We invite you to be our guest this Sunday morning. What we hope for most is that you will give us the chance to welcome you as if you were Jesus himself walking through our doors.
