Worship with Bishop Rob: Each Sunday during Advent, Bishop Rob will offer an online worship service using the “Sacred Meal for a Dispersed Community" liturgy. Services will be held at  9:30am and will include the lighting of Advent candles. The liturgy can also be used for household gatherings with no clergy required. Click here for more information about the liturgy, links for
Sunday worship, and (easy to make) bread recipes.
