November 2020

Dear People of God, 

As we move into the autumn, our worship schedule remains the same, yet our life of faith and ministries continues to move us forward.

November is a month in which we talk much about “giving thanks.” This year, we may struggle to find things for which to give thanks; yet there are many if we will but pause and look back on our lives. 

The Search Committee is hard at work, conducting interviews with applicants for the rector’s position. Please keep all…Search Committee and applicants in your prayers. Looking back over these months, we can remember many good things, many grace-filled moments for which to give thanks. The future holds much promise.   

Our Jubilee Food Pantry continues to bring food to those in need each Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.  

Plans are now being made for Advent and Christmas with attention as to how we continue to stay connected while masked and separated yet celebrate the beginning of our new liturgical year and the glorious birth of Jesus. 

Please stay in touch and stay connected. We will come together again in worship, service and education.

God’s continued blessings on you and yours,
Betty McWhorter +
Interim Rector

3) A mask must be worn at all times while in worship. If you should forget your mask, the church will supply you with one.
