With high delight
Let us unite
In songs of great jubilation.
Ye pure in heart,
All bear your part,
Sing Jesus Christ, our salvation.
To set us free
Is ris’n and sends
To all earth’s ends
Good news to save ev’ry nation.
Dear members of St. John’s:
We are delighted to announce a return to public, in-person worship on Sunday, June 28.
During our time of reopening, we will have services at 8 a.m., 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. on Sundays. This will allow us to spread our attendance over more services, and we will aim to keep our occupancy below 50 for each service.
We will continue to take precautions, including:
We will also continue to provide an online option for you, if you wish to remain vigilant about your own isolation and social distancing. We will stream the 11 a.m. service live to our Youtube page. A new stream link will be posted by the Saturday evening prior to Sunday’s service. You may watch live at 11, or you may watch the archived video at your convenience.
While every report on the coronavirus suggests that communion itself is not a major risk factor for contracting Covid-19, it is also the time when we draw closest as a congregation. Therefore, I am also available for individual communion for at-risk members by appointment. I can administer the Supper during a home visit, or you may arrange to come to church for a brief service of the Sacrament.
Our isolation seems to have stretched on forever, but it is the blink of an eye in God’s time. I’m hopeful that our precautions and deliberate return to public worship will guard us against a recurrence of infection. I am also very much looking forward to seeing you all once again.
In addition to resuming worship, our Voters' Meeting regularly held in May will be held on June 28 after the 8 a.m. service in the church.
