Indoor Worship Has Been Suspended
The Covid-19 case counts have gone above the diocesan guidance threshold for allowing in person worship, so we are suspending in person worship for now. I think we have seen this coming as cases have been creeping up all over the country and some places have rather large outbreaks. We still have our online version and Zoom coffee hour to continue to worship and stay connected.
All Saints' is a warm and welcoming congregation. We are open-minded, curious, fun-loving, devoted, relational. Members of our church reach out within the parish and our communities in a variety of ways. We know that God is not finished with us yet and we seek, through prayer and study, to find the ways to best serve God in one another and the world around us. We offer radical hospitality to the stranger, and infinite respect for all, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Update During This Challenging Time of COVID-19
Facts not fear. Clean Hands. Open Hearts.
All Saints' Beloved.
We have now been living in this new reality of the pandemic for many months. Our lives have changed and the life of our parish has changed! We quickly navigated to online worship (click on the Remote Worship icon above) with a Sunday service that you can click through. We have all become much more friendly with technology!
Parishes around the diocese are taking our lead from our Bishop and the Governor. As of September 27 we have returned to indoor worship, which may be suspended any time when local case counts go back up or something interferes with safety indoors, or if the Bishop or Governor request us to suspend indoor worship. Please click here for more information. The wonderful online service continues to be available each week for those who are unable or uncomfortable attending indoor worship--which is actually most of the parish right now. The link to the online service is above (click on the 'Remote Worship' box or 'click here' button). If you are missing the sacrament and would like Communion, please call and we'll see if we can work something out that feels safe for you.
Remember all the good public health measures we are hearing from everywhere: wash your hands, physical distance, wear a mask when out in public, stay home if you are sick. If you need help staying at home regarding groceries/essentials, please reach out. And stay aware of vulnerable friends and neighbors and how they are doing--this can be a time of rich and creative ministry!
Thank you to everyone who is able to keep up your giving/pledge during this time. We are keeping the lights on, the staff are busy, and we are keeping our feeding ministries going!
May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and the blessing of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, be with you always.
The Rev. Curtis E. Metzger, Rector
