Clark Will Be Singing this Weekend

Clark Williamson will be singing the hymns at both the Saturday and Sunday services this weekend (October 24-25, 2020). There is still reason for abundant caution, so the congregation will not be joining in, but it’s a start. (Clark will be 25+ feet away from everyone else and masked even while singing.)

In-Person Worship This Coming Weekend

We will reopen the sanctuary to in-person worship this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 24-25, 2020. We will still wear masks and practice social distancing, but we will no longer take temperatures or confirm attendance (reservations). There will be two in-person worship opportunities. One service will be on Saturday morning. We’re adding this service so that it can be recorded, processed, uploaded, and “premiered” on Facebook Live at 8:15 a.m. the following day (Sunday). This same service will be aired in our 10:30 Sunday slot on KABI. The second service will be at 10:30 on Sunday Morning. If we have enough interest in an 8:15 Sunday morning service, we can start one.

Clarification: the Saturday and Sunday services will both be at 10:30.

Virtual Worship and Communion This Sunday

This Sunday (October 4, 2020) is World Communion Sunday. I want to issue a friendly reminder that we are virtual only for worship this Sunday. We will, however, be taking communion. You’re encouraged to check and see if you have bread/crackers and grape juice available. If you don’t, we have prepackaged containers and volunteers to deliver them. Just let me know at john@revcollins.com.

Virtual Worship Only This Sunday

Because of the continued increase in community spread of COVID-19, and at the request of the County Health Officer, Brian Holmes, we will not have in-person worship this Sunday, September 27, 2020. We probably won’t have it for at least a month. We will provide a virtual worship service through all the regular means at 10:30 a.m.
