OUTDOOR WORSHIP ON SUNDAY AT 11:00AM.

Starting September 6, we will gather on the deck in Cassandra Burton Fellowship Grove for a short service of prayer, centered on the Blessing of Creation and Healing of the World.
If you want to participate, please read and send back by mail or email only the Regathering Covenant you will find on the Diocesan website
The Regathering Covenant must be emailed or mailed to the church office.
As you come to worship, you will be asked to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth at all times during the service. You need to bring your own seat and keep at least 6 feet from all people who aren’t from your household.
There will be no music, no singing and no communion. There will not be a printed bulletin. The bulletin will be sent to you by email or downloadable on the church website.
The usher may ask you to sit on the parking lot, if the deck is full, according to the 6 foot distance requirement.
If you’re feeling unwell, have been recently sick or if a member of your family is sick, you are asked to stay at home.
The building will be closed and there will be no possibility to use the facilities, except in case of emergency.
The service may be cancelled at any time, due to weather concerns or safety issues. If you need to make sure the service is being held, please call Dave Jackson or Rev. Fanny.
In spite of all those limitations, we are looking forward to seeing you there. We hope you’ll enjoy this opportunity to worship on our beautiful grounds and see each other again (even if from a distance)!
Please note that the regular 9:00am service on Zoom/phone call is unchanged and will be held as usual.

TUESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY. A new course of Bible Study will begin this Tuesday, June 23rd, at 6:00 PM. We’ll discuss the readings for the next Sunday and then have a short service of prayer, called Compline. The readings are listed in the Sunday bulletin every week.

or by Zoom phone call: 301 715 8592 and ID 943 310 321 84.

IMPERSONATION EMAILS. Please be careful if you receive an unusual email from Rev Fanny or from any other clergy person. If it does not come from the regular email address they use to communicate with you (check the address, not just the name), it’s very likely a scam. Don’t respond, don’t click on any link. In doubt, call or text the person or even send them another email using the regular address but DO NOT “REPLY” to their messages. Thank you!
