Yes, we will have worship on Sunday while abiding by Governor Hogan's stay-at-home order. For the next two weeks, at least, I will preach from home and our musicians will play and sing from home, but we will figure out the technology we need to continue having worship every Sunday.
As we prepare for Palm Sunday on April 5, you are invited to be part of a video "procession." If you will make a 5-second video clip of you waving a home-made palm branch or a branch from your yard and email this clip to me ( ) by Tuesday night (March 31) I will put them together for our video procession on Sunday.
Until it is safe to worship in physical proximity again, our worship services will be online, using our YouTube livestream. The service is live each Sunday at 11 a.m. and the recording of the service will be posted immediately after. Click here for our recent worship service videos. If you subscribe, you will receive an email just before each live worship service alerting you to its start. The bulletin will be emailed to everyone on our newsletter list, so please let us know by email if you would like to be added to our newsletter list.
We are holding our meetings on Zoom.us, and I plan to lead some adult and youth interactive classes on Zoom as well, so you might want to familiarize yourself with that platform and sign up for a free account.
During these difficult times, please continue to reach out to one another by phone. Do not hesitate to call me with your pastoral concerns.
Also, please help to maintain the church’s financial health during this time by making contributions through our web page (click here to give) or by mail. Your church will continue to fulfill its mission. We will use different methods, but we will live and proclaim the same Gospel, the same Lord Jesus Christ.
