Announcements — November 22, 2020

† THANKSGIVING EVE WORSHIP  Join us on Wednesday, November 25, at 7:00 pm, for a special Thanksgiving Eve Service with Holy Communion.

† NEW SERVICE OPTIONS  We are offering a ‘Service of the Word’ on the first and third Sunday’s of the month and a ‘Service of the Sacrament’ on the second and fourth Sundays. The next Service of the Word will be at 7:45 am on Sunday, December 6. A Service of the Word is essentially a regular Sunday service without communion. Because these are high precaution services we encourage everyone to wear masks and will have minimal singing as we have done with our current Wednesday morning services.  A Service of the Sacrament will be a communion service that will be structurally similar to the one used for drive-up communion (confession and absolution, a short reading, a short message, etc.).

† POINSETTIAS  If you would like to purchase a poinsettia(s) to help adorn the sanctuary at Christmas, please use the sign-up sheet on the table in the narthex and prepay Diana Endicott.  The cost is $8.00 each.
