October 31: Communion & Outdoor Worship

Communion on November 1st
We are excited to share that we can now share Communion, through a creatively pandemic-safe process! We'll do an experimental test-run of this new way next Sunday, November 1st. In short, Rev. Liz will consecrate the bread during our livestream worship service, and then it will be packaged into boxes to be picked up outside at church between noon and 1:00 pm that day, or, if need be, delivered. Once the kits have been distributed, we will hold another prayer gathering on Zoom at 5:00 p.m. to receive Communion together; the Zoom link will be sent to those who sign up. (If you're not able to participate in this gathering, you may still receive Communion on your own or with others in your household, using a set of prayers in the booklet that comes with your kit.) 

It's not too late! To take part in Communion on November 1, please register using this link by the end of the day today, Saturday. 

Outdoor Worship on November 8th
Join us! We are going to have a small outdoor worship as a first experiment in regathering in person on Sunday, November 8th at 12:30pm. Bring your own lawn chair and join us on the labyrinth for a simple, spoken Liturgy of the Word. We will be following careful health guidelines: everyone will need to wear masks the whole time, with the exception of the leaders when speaking at a significant distance from anyone else. We will all have our temperatures taken on arrival, we will maintain at least 6 feet of distance between ourselves while there, and children will need to stay with their families. 

As we are still learning the logistics for gathering safely in-person, we will limit this first service to 25 people, and ask that you sign up here to come. If all the spots have been taken, please sign up for the waitlist spots; we will let you know if space becomes available, and if not, will invite you to sign up first the next time we offer this. We also hope to expand the number of people who can attend a given service as we learn this new way. Please note that we will also continue offering our regular livestream service at 10:15.
