As many of you know, the Diocese has informed us that we will be allowed to hold in-person worship services beginning this September (unless the COVID-19 situation changes before then). There are many restrictions we will be required to follow in order to minimize the risk of contagion for those people who choose to attend – the services will most certainly not feel the same as our pre-pandemic gatherings! Read the Diocesan plan In this Together and take a look at the brief run-down of restrictions included at the start of the survey ( below).
Knowing this was coming, Executive, Parish Council and the worship committee have all had structured conversations about what aspects of our in-person worship they miss; what aspects they don’t miss; and what has been working with Zoom worship. In response to those discussions, along with many other informal conversations, we have decided that Sunday mornings will remain on Zoom, at least for the first while. In-person services will be offered at other times of the week. (If you would like a glimpse into my thought process, you can take a look at this document).
To assist us in planning for September, we need some more information.
Please complete this short survey.
Finally, please pray for all those charged with making decisions and establishing procedures that we might be wise and faithful stewards for God’s people in this place.
