What’s Happening

Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.   (Philippians 4:6)

REGATHERING DAY – WORSHIP IN THE SANCTUARY, May 2, 2021, 9:30am!

More than a year later, we rejoice to offer in-person worship to all who feel comfortable gathering together. While it’s not everybody yet, more than 80% of our pre-pandemic worshiping community is now fully vaccinated. Committed to safety protocols of circulating air, open doors and windows, humming instead of singing, masking, 6’ distancing, and a careful touch-free environment, sanitizer, spray and wipes, we feel it is safe to gather for worship and provide Sunday school for the children. 

We will have live music, with care taken for our musicians, but know that all words, lyrics and liturgy, will be displayed on the screen. If you prefer a printed bulletin, we ask you to print (from the email) and bring your own. While we delight to see each other after our long diaspora, know that our social time will be distanced in the courtyard and without refreshments.

Committed to everyone, we will livestream weekly worship and post it to the website and facebook page.

THE PRAYERS IN WORSHIP

Since moving to online worship, you have noticed that we have condensed the prayers of Confession, Offering, and Pastoral Prayers into one segment. Finding the balance between spiritual care, privacy, and security has its challenges, especially when shared with the “world wide web.” 

This said, it was brought to our attention that using first names in the prayers can be distracting (not always knowing which “Tom, Dick or Jane” is being referred to). But because prayer is the place to be quiet before the Lord, in this public forum we have opted to provide open silence for worshipers to pray for the people and circumstances known and closest to heart. Be assured that in our silence, the one offering the prayers will specifically (though silently) name those known to the Prayer Chain and the pastors, while also praying for complete strangers, all known to God.
