COVID Update - Mask Requirement Reinstated
If Covid has taught us anything, it is flexibility... Given the recent uptick in cases in the community (COVID ActNow Data) and our own congregation, the Leadership Team has decided to reinstate the mask requirement in the building temporarily, at least until case numbers show a steady decline.
Effective immediately, please wear a well-fitting, high-quality mask (KN95, KF94, or N95) whenever you are in the building.
Please do not come to church if you are not feeling well in any way and consider whether to attend if you are a recent close contact of someone with Covid as we are seeing higher transmission with the BA.2 variant, even among the fully vaccinated. At this time, we are still planning to hold Sunday forums and coffee hour. We ask that people keep masks on except when actively eating and drinking. We will evaluate the situation weekly and let you know of any changes.
If you happen to test positive and were at church in the prior 48 hours, please email email@example.com. If you are scheduled to serve in worship and test positive, are a close contact, or have any symptoms, please reach out to Katherine (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We invite you to join a service of nighttime prayers, Compline, each evening via Zoom at 8:00 PM. Click here to read more about this service and access the Zoom link. An additional weekly offering we hold is Saturday morning prayer, held at 7:45 AM each Saturday morning. Click here to read more about this service.

Prayer for the Human Family
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for Ukraine
God of peace and tranquility, whose will is for all God's people to live in harmony, stop the violence in Ukraine. Turn the hearts of the aggressors to peace. Give diplomats wisdom to negotiate an end to the fighting. Protect the innocent, shield the vulnerable, and stir up compassion and courage inside each of us that we may do our part to end this conflict. All this we ask through Jesus Christ, the prince of peace. Amen.
