Dear saints of St Andrew’s,
All the staff of St Andrew’s continues to hold you in our prayers as this time of pandemic and social distance has dragged on longer than any of us ever thought it could. Following the leadership of our COVID Re-opening Task Force and the Congregation’s Council, St Andrew’s has been open for in-person worship since July 5th. Part of our mission is to worship and love God together and also to love our neighbors and protect them from harm. Therefore, as a congregation, we have chosen to continue to follow the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC). As for committees and small group meetings, Zoom is still the recommended way of gathering. Please click here for a flow-chart of how to meet as a small group.
Beginning Sunday September 20th we are resuming our 8 AM and 10:30 AM worship services. We will be celebrating Holy Communion at both services once a month (September 27th, and following this on the first of the month: Oct 4, Nov 1.)
Sunday 8 AM worship will be a brief morning-themed service. It will be in-person, outside in our courtyard (during bad weather we will be in the Fellowship Hall), with facial coverings and social distance. Worshippers at this service may sing gently. Please click here for a full description of what to expect at 8 AM.
Sunday 10:30 AM worship will be a traditional service. It will be both in-person and live-streamed on Facebook Live. We will continue to practice social distancing and require facial coverings at this service as well. We can accommodate roughly 50 people in our sanctuary safely. If we exceed this, worshippers will be seated in the Fellowship Hall to watch the service via the live-stream. (Please note that at present there are plenty of spaces at the 10:30 AM service, especially as we are adding the 8:00 AM service.) Please click here for a full description of what to expect at 10:30 AM.
Wednesday 7 PM Evening Prayer live-stream resumed Wed, September 16th. They are only on Facebook Live. We will explore the Psalms and spiritual practices.
There is no need to RSVP to any of these services, but we do need to know which members of your family you have been consistently spending time with and are part of your “trusted unit” so the ushers can seat you properly. Please contact the church office.
We thank you all for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate uncharted waters. We trust that Jesus is our one true hope and steady guide along the way and we believe that the Holy Spirit goes with us wherever we go.
