Join us during the summer at 9AM
Join us for our combined summer service at 9am. Why not go to church before you head to the beach- come as you are- shorts, cool tops and sneakers. Jesus wore sandals and so can you!
We encourage families to attend services this summer and participated in a “Bible Stories & Crafts for Kids” program. After the opening hymn, Adult volunteers will lead children to the Sunday School room and read a Bible story that corresponds to the Gospel. They will work on a craft inspired by the story in a fun and safe environment. This is a drop-in program; no registration is needed.
For everyone's safety, we will still be socially distancing and asking families to sit together in church. In addition, there will be a section in the rear of the church that will continue to be blocked off to provide 6 feet between parishioners.
Remember, masks are required at ALL TIMES regardless of vaccination status. This is to protect everyone, as there will be some individuals who can not be vaccinated, including children.
Receiving wine during Communion
As we make every effort to find the “fine line” to accommodate to our parish members while keeping risk of Covid as low as possible, communion wine (along with the bread) will be given out from a cruet at the top of the aisle to those who bring their own cup from home to receive the wine. Those receiving (the bread and/or the wine) will be masked in a line down the center aisle, returning via the side aisles (please maintain social distance as indicated on the carpet). Bring an extra little wine glass with you to share with someone who has none. Reclaim it afterwards and reverently wash both at home. Fr John will offer this gift of a glass during the announcements.
