OUTDOOR SERVICES ARE HELD WEATHER PERMITTING ON SUNDAYS AT 9 AM

 

A WORD ABOUT REGISTERING FOR SERVICES

We recognize that registering for services is an inconvenience. We also are aware that there have been some glitches for people in the registration process. Please do continue to register for services for the following reasons:

  1. Registration is a key to contact tracing if (God forbid) someone at a service tested positive for Covid-19. We would be able to contact you immediately.
  2. If there is a weather cancellation or change in the service, we can contact you as well. This Sunday, for example, the weather is calling for scattered thunderstorms.
  3. We are limited in the number of people that can attend. Currently, we can accommodate up to 100 people at an outdoor service. When we are able to worship indoors, the limit will be 45. So registering makes sure that your place is reserved. And we can create a wait list if necessary.

If you have trouble accessing Realm (our online membership program) or registering for services, please call or email Susan Mason at (248)651-6188 or info@stpfeeds.org. She is normally in the office on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

 

Here is what to expect when you arrive:

The front half of the lower parking lot will be roped off for seating. Set up your chairs at least 6' from other family groups. The ushers will have bulletins for you or you can use the .pdf on your phone or tablet. 

The service will be led from the top of the main steps. The offering plate will be at the foot of the main stairs -- that is also where communion will be distributed. There will be two stations. Please line up with 6' between people. Keep you mask on until you return to your seat and then eat the wafer. Wine will not be distributed.

     

Bathrooms will be available during the service. Enter through the parking lot door (above) and proceed to the upstairs bathrooms. Follow the signs on the bathroom doors. One person at a time.

Everyone entering the building must sign in at the podium, take their temperature, and fill out the short health screening questionnaire. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

ONLINE GIVING

You can help us out by supporting the church during this time of social isolation. There are several ways to give:

  1. Just continue to mail your pledge payment to church. We are checking the mail weekly and making deposits twice a month.
  2. Automate your giving by setting up an automatic ACH payment with your bank. Email Bonnie Haacke for more information.
  3. Give online -- it's easy. Just go to this page on our website and you can make pledge payments, memorial gifts, and more.

Or watch Fr. Eric's short video on how to do it:

 

Here are some other resources for you to use as you worship and pray at home.

 

Start with the Book of Common Prayer

  • I particularly recommend the Daily Office, beginning at page 74.
  • The Daily Office includes services for Morning Prayer, Noonday Prayer, Evening Prayer and Compline.
  • There are also shorter services called Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families, beginning at page 136. They are shorter versions of the four services above.
  • If you don’t have a prayerbook at home, the whole prayer book is also online at: https://www.bcponline.org

 

Speaking of the Daily Office, I really like the Mission of St. Clare.

 

St. Philip’s

 

Lent Madness: https://www.lentmadness.org/category/lent-madness-2020/

  • For a light-hearted look at the saints of the church, check out Lent Madness.
  • Every day during Lent you can vote between two saints.
  • On Easter the winning saint receives the Golden Halo.

 

The Washington National Cathedral offers free webcasts of their worship services.

  • These will continue even though the cathedral is closed to public worship for the next couple of weeks.
  • The preacher March 15 will be the Most Rev. Michael Curry, and on March 22 Bishop Marianne Budde will be the preacher.
  • They also have archived webcasts here: https://cathedral.org/worship/service-archive/

 

Centering Prayer

  • Paul Bozymowski leads a centering prayer group on Saturdays. Contact him for more information.
  • You can learn more at: https://www.contemplativeoutreach.org.
  • There is also a neat app for your phone or tablet available on Apple or Android. It is called Centering Prayer.
