It appears that Omicron is waning and we are back at church in person! This is great news because worshipping in person as a gathered community, is a significant part of the definition of church. Next Sunday, February 6th, will be our first in-person worship since late December.
Prior to closing our doors in December, our plan had been to have two in-person liturgies at 9:15 AM and 10:30 AM. However, due to the fact that everyone will not be comfortable in returning in person, and recognizing the success of our Zoom worship in January, we will have a hybrid offering.
At 9:15 AM we will worship online via Zoom. This will be a short 40 minute liturgy with congregational participation, music, prayers and a homily, for those who wish to worship from home.
Our second liturgy, for those who feel safe to attend in person, will be at 10:30 AM, in the format of our usual traditional Eucharistic service at the church. Because it is the only in-person opportunity for worship, no vaccination certificate is required. The service will also be live streamed and you may watch it from home
Our in-person Wednesday morning Eucharist will restart February 9th at 7:30am.
For now, our young people will continue online for worship and confirmation preparation.
There are liturgies for everyone! Please join us.
