Because we are called to love our neighbors and want to practice care for our community, we will continue to have online Sunday morning worship through August 15, 2021 (10 a.m. Summer worship).
We will resume in-person, in-sanctuary worship on August 22, 2021, with a time change to 11 a.m. The rationale for this is based on both care for the congregation – allowing time for as many as possible, our youth included, to be vaccinated – and for the benefit of our July and August guest preachers (Crystal Parker and Amanda Hill) to continue within our current format rather than have to make changes or start with new policies in place. It also allows time to set up a livestream format over the summer that will work in the sanctuary space when we resume worship in the sanctuary.
When we do resume worship in the sanctuary, out of respect for our yet vulnerable members, we will continue to require masks for all. Therefore the Summer schedule is as follows – please add these dates to your calendars:
Look for schedule changes in September to accommodate both in-person worship and Sunday School classes.
July 4 – IN PERSON prayer service for the nation – outside in the Memorial Garden, 10 a.m.
July 11, 18, 25, August 1 & 8 – Crystal Varner Parker preaching, livestream to Facebook at 10 a.m., she is the “on-call” pastor during that time
August 15 – Former intern, the Rev. Amanda Hill preaching; livestream to Facebook, 10 a.m.
August 22, 29 – Pastor Kerra returns from vacation/renewal leave; in-person worship begins; AND the livestream to Facebook will continue – UPDATE on worship time, 11 a.m. worship
September – look for an updated schedule to accommodate all our Sunday morning offerings
