Summer 2020...We have moved to holding Sunday services out-of-doors alongside our back parking lot. The 1st and 3rd Sundays (as well as 5th Sundays when they happen) will be a Holy Eucharist celebrated by our priest, Fr. John Frazier. The remaining two Sundays will be Morning Prayer with members of our parish acting as the officiants. As someone pointed out, our building is closed, but our church - the people - are open to caring with warm hearts for each other and the community.
There will be social distancing - all seating is arranged in family groups 6 feet apart; there will be masks - everyone must wear one; sanitizers are available. We do our part to halt the virus as we worship together and support each other.
Services are at 9:30 a.m. to avoid the heat as much as possible. Please bring a lawn chair to sit on and a water bottle if you like.
We still welcome your visits to our facebook and web pages and our new blog (see 'Conversations', under the Library heading here at the web site.)
Meantime: Stay safe, stand back, and say 'I love you' to those you love.
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
From our mission statement printed above you can see that we are an inclusive parish, as we believe that the genuine embrace of the other is in keeping with our baptismal covenant as expressed in our Book of Common Prayer. With God’s help we will continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, proclaiming the good news of God in Christ, and striving for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being. (BCP 304/5)
We love opportunities to sing, share meals and to be hospitable. Your presence among us provides us with such an opportunity. Whatever your walk in life we invite you into our fellowship – a sanctuary for the sojourner as we also strive to follow Christ.
The Rev. John Thomas Frazier
