Worship During Covid-19

We are making a week-by-week decision about worship. Please check the E-pistle on Saturdays for the latest information about whether we are outside, inside, or online. We realize this is frustrating and appreciate your patience and understanding.


Fourth Sunday of Easter: April 25, 2021

Join us online--you have two options:



Option 1:

Join us virtually at 9 am for the Livestream

Access the service live on Zoom at 9 am Sunday, OR

Access the service live on our Facebook page, OR

The livestream will also be posted on YouTube later on Sunday.

Download the bulletin for Sunday's Service. 



Option 2:

Pre-recorded Service on YouTube

This service is available starting on Saturday. It is roughly 30 minutes and includes the readings, sermon, prayers and some music. Think of it a little like a virtual 8 am service.

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.
