At all services, masking is now optional, and we will resume offering the chalice as well. Anyone is welcome to continue wearing masks throughout our services, and know that you are under no obligation to receive from the chalice – the host alone sufficiently conveys the efficacy of the sacrament. Not everyone will be comfortable with making these changes so please be kind to each other at this time. This policy has changed based on the current CDC recommendations. If we experience another surge of COVID-19 then we may need to resume masking and other preventative measures in the future.
We will continue to stream our worship on Facebook for the foreseeable future for those who are unable to attend. If you are feeling ill or uncomfortable with our current policy please make use of this online option.
On Saturday, May 14, a few members of our Outreach Committee will be in the Christ Church parking lot from 11 am until 1 pm, sitting at our umbrella table. Eagerly, we will be awaiting other parishioners (you!) bearing gifts of toilet paper and nonperishable food that we will be sharing with two of our ministry partners–MetMin and The Beth–as well as our own front porch pantry
