We begin by sharing joys and concerns, then share in a pastoral prayer, and then close with Compline prayers from the Book of Common Prayer. This lasts about 15-20 minutes. Leadership will rotate and include me and church leaders. I will be the leader in these first days as we build this ministry, and then we will begin to rotate so that I will lead some nights, and others will lead some nights.

Just a reminder out of kindness, please place your phone on mute.  By placing your phone on mute until you want to request a prayer or comment.  You will be able to hear the service without other background noises present.  Thank you! 😉

 

For members of the church: 

On Sunday April 19 at 8:30 a.m we had a special Charge Conference, as required by the Book of Discipline. The purpose was to discuss and vote on our participation in the Paycheck Protection Act which allows us to apply for 2.5x our payroll costs to help offset the costs of the pandemic. We voted to apply for this forgivable loan, should more funds become available. Funds for the program were allocated before our application was considered. Our bank has our application ready, in the event more funds are approved.
