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!

HOLIDAY WORSHIP SCHEDULE. There will be a service on Thanksgiving Day at 9:00 AM via Zoom. During Advent we will be using Rite 1 for Morning Prayer and Eucharist. On Christmas Eve, we will have an outdoor service at 3:00 PM. The second Christmas Eve service will begin at 6:00 PM via Zoom.

VACATION. Rev. Fanny will be on vacation from 11/29 through 12/5. Bible study on 12/01 is cancelled.
