MORE HYMN SINGS
Our first summer Hymn Sing went so well, we’ve decided to continue them. We’ll be meeting every other Wednesday night, starting in Johnson Hall and ending in the nave. July 14, 28, Aug 11, 25 and Sept 8. Sign up here.
Rector Helen will be taking a staycation July 5-13. Please contact Jim Craven for pastoral needs, or Kathy Barnes for other needs.
In July, we will practice gathering with more people indoors. Signup here. We will have one weekly, masked indoor service at 9:30. The congregation will continue to be masked as an act of generous hospitality to children who cannot yet be vaccinated and transplant recipients and others on medication that reduce the efficacy of vaccines. MASKS REQUIRED WHILE IN BUILDING FOR WORSHIP //exception: Worship leaders may remove masks while inside the altar rail and at the organ.//Keep socially distanced while entering and exiting. Please no congregating within the building. If you would like to greet/chat with others, do so outdoors, not blocking flow to the parking lot. Chairs are in pods with some social distancing. Communion bread brought to your seat. No congregational singing yet. (We are practicing this with Hymn Sings and other gatherings). Stickers will be available. GREEN=I am vaccinated and comfortable with hugs. YELLOW=I’m comfortable in a masked conversation but not ready for handshakes/hugs. ORANGE=My comfort level is staying socially distanced today.
GARDEN/GROUNDS WORKDAYS FOR 2021
All workdays begin at 7:30 and last until 10:00 or as long as you can stay. Bring a hat, gloves, water and tools. Contact the workday leader for more information.
