Sunday Service: We are attending service virtually at the present time. Our next celebration of the Eucharist is every Pentecost Sunday at 10 am, outside the church.
Laying on of Hands for Healing is not available at this time. When in-person it usually takes place after the Eucharist on the last Sunday of the month.
Children’s service is one Sunday in every liturgical season, the children take over as many liturgical duties for the service as possible and there is a special “Paper bag” sermon just for them!
Sunday School is not meeting at this time. The children begin in the classrooms and then join the adults for Holy Eucharist.
Fellowship is after the Liturgy, everyone is welcome to gather for fellowship after the virtual church service.
Holy Days Services are announced in the bulletin and on our website.
