What does all this look like if we can't get toget
As we enter into the holiest period in the Christian calendar we are still in the midst of social distancing and doing everything that we can to protect the most vulnerable portions of the body of Christ. It isn't easy!! It certainly comes with a lot of grief. Yet in the end we are called to walk with Christ to share in that glorious morning.
It does mean we will make accommodations as necessary and celebrate as we can. All services this week will continue to be streamed on Youtube and Facebook. The schedule is as follows.
Holy Week Schedule
Palm Sunday: Morning Prayer and liturgy of the Palms 9:30am

Sunday Services and Daily Devotions
Worship in Weird times
While the building is closed we are still called to be the Church. One of the primary tasks and certainly the heart of the community is to hold each other in prayer. Bishop David Reed has told us to stop all in person services through April 30th. He expressly included our Drive In service in his order. I know that Bishop Reed does this with the utmost grief and with prayers for all of us for the heartbreak that comes with difficult decisions. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as we go forward. It is a heavy burden that he carries,
All of our services during the ban will be online. I am working on a number of things at this moment to get us through this time. I am not sure what they all are yet. But the Holy Spirit is moving and opening up some ideas. I will let you know as soon as we can.
We will be streaming on a variety of platforms. Facebook and YouTube primarily. We will do one service at 9:30 am on Sunday and we have been streaming Compline nightly at 10.
