Voices Together and the Worlds Worship Creates

The order of worship is HERE.

Worship bulletin: This Sunday for our in-person worship, we will be providing a printed order of worship. We are focusing our regular bulletin production time and energy on having the songs and liturgies on slides for folks worshiping remotely via Zoom.  Announcements will continue to be sent out via email. 

In-person Worship: Sign-up HERE if you wish to attend in-person this Sunday or any Sunday through October 31. Notes: Please wear your mask. If you forget it, we will have some available. The Zoom option will continue to be offered for the service.

Nursery & Preschoolers’ Time is offered during worship the first Sunday of the month. Those spaces will still be available every Sunday if children need a place to move and play, but a parent/guardian will need to stay with their child when the rooms are not staffed with volunteers.  The next time childcare will be available will be this Sunday, November 7. 

COVID precautions: Before you come to church, screen your household: any fever? any loss of smell or taste? any close exposure to active COVID19? any illness? If anyone in your household is ill, we ask that you stay home that Sunday.

The Zoom link is dial 1-301-715-8592, ID 835 7902 8885.

A Gathering of Stories for BREAD: It is time for our BREAD listening sessions which will meet by Zoom again this year. The BREAD organization looks to focus its social justice energy around topics that are affecting its members and personal stories are the best way to frame and communicate those concerns to folks working directly to make changes in policy. Questions will focus on what about your neighborhood worries you the most, a specific environmental concern, and one thing in your neighborhood or workplace that is functioning well.  Zoom meeting options:  Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 7:00 PM, Thursday, Oct. 14 at 7:00 PM, Sunday, Oct. 17 at 2:00 PM. Mark your calendar! The Zoom link for these meetings: dial 1-301-715-8592, ID 835 7902 8885.
