Regathering the Church – Phase 1b

Dear People of God,

We have tested the waters of regathering our Church with Phase 1a (Drive Through Communion) and now we are ready to add Phase 1b (small in-person services). Beginning next Saturday, June 6 we will offer worship services for up to 20 people. Pre-registration is required to ensure that we don’t have too many people at these services. We are asking those who attend these services to wear a mask while in the church building, to maintain a distance of 6 ft. between households, and refrain from physical contact with anyone who is not in your own household. The full details of how this will be accomplished are listed on the regathering page under the heading of Phase 1b. Please remain at home if you have any symptoms of sickness or if you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus in the past 14 days.

At this time the distribution of communion will be in the form of bread only, and, according to CDC recommendations, we will not offer music during in-person services for the time being.

Worshiping with these precautions is going to be a very different experience. I encourage you to be patient as we all adjust to these changes and remember that we are doing all of this out of love for our neighbor.

Vulnerable individuals (people over 65 and those with medical conditions) are encouraged to continue to worship at home during this phase. For this reason, I will continue to offer Drive Through communion on Sunday afternoons, but the window to receive communion in this manner will now be from 2:30-3:30 on Sunday afternoon.

Our first two in-person communion services will be:
Saturday, June 6 at 4:00PM – register here or by phone 904-406-5660
Sunday, June 7 at 4:00PM – register here or by phone 904-406-5660

Registration for each service will close on Friday at Noon, or when we reach the maximum number of worshipers. Please register earlier in the week if possible. More services will be added in future weeks if these two are not enough to accommodate those who are ready to worship in-person.

We will continue to have the same two online services on Sunday mornings.
8:00 AM – Conference Call
10:30 AM – Facebook

Please consider donating to our livestreaming equipment fund to help us buy the items needed to be able to broadcast our in-person services to the internet without pre-recording and editing them. This will allow us to bless those who are homebound and those who are new to our congregation while also helping us to better steward the working hours of our staff.

I look forward to celebrating the Lord’s Supper with you in person next week.

Grace and Peace,
Fr. Chris+

Coronavirus Prayer

“Fear not” is a phrase repeated over and over again in God’s word, and Jesus and St. Paul both encourage us to “not be anxious.” We believe that the Lord will deliver us from this “deadly pestilence” of Coronavirus and we urge you to pray to that end. Let’s put this whole situation in the hands of the one who is Mighty to Save. Please consider making the following prayer a part of your daily prayers.

Almighty God, our strong tower of defense in time of trouble: we ask for your protection and deliverance from the dangers of the Coronavirus which continues to move through our nation and around the world. Please heal those who are sick, (especially ______________,) comfort those who mourn, give wisdom to our leaders, protect those in the medical professions, and grant that in all our troubles we may put our whole trust and confidence in your mercy, serving you in holiness and purity of life, to your honor and glory; through our only Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
