New COVID Protocols
Dear Beloved of God,
The Re-opening Committee made two new recommendations that were approved by your Session:
  • That we go to Zoom-only worship until March 2nd (Ash Wednesday). Should the numbers decline faster than expected, we can revisit opening sooner.
  • That small groups and committees meet under current protocols with one exception: if any member of a group/committee is uncomfortable meeting in-person, the meeting will be virtual only. This will eliminate hybrid meetings.

I regret that we are unable to worship in person for a while, but keeping you all safe is a priority. I celebrate that we had almost 60 people in Zoom worship last Sunday and I hope you will all continue to join us via Zoom as we wait out the Omicron variant.

Zoom Sunday School for Children
Children of all ages are invited to Zoom Sunday School, each Sunday morning from 9:45–10:15. Please join us for songs, Bible stories, prayers, crafts, and more!

As word spreads about Zoom Sunday School, we’ve been blessed to have participants from as far away as Washington State and Costa Rica. We will be joined at least occasionally in the new year by Sid (aka Luke Van Marter), who no doubt will continue to make us smile as he completely misunderstands the day’s Bible lesson.

Teachers are Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter and Bev Machin. Please contact Eva or Jerry if you are interested in being part of the teaching team in 2022 or if you want to be added to the list to receive the weekly Zoom invitations. 

If you have any questions or comments, please call or email Eva Stimson or Jerry Van Marter.
Join Spirit of Sophia and Paula D'Arcy on January 29th
Learning to balance your own self-care and growth with the needs of a thirsty world.
A Virtual Mini Retreat for Women on Saturday, January 29th from 10:00 am to 12:15 pm EST
Cost: $55 (partial scholarships are available)

Join us to explore taking greater responsibility for being fully alive. What do I need to see about myself? What keeps my pain stuck and my voice at times silent? Am I able to say “yes” to life’s necessary pruning? Rumi teaches, “Stop looking the other way. Look inside yourself. You already have the precious mix that will make you well.”

We encourage you to take this Saturday and set it aside for you. If at all possible, plan to spend time in solitude after our time with Paula – perhaps using a spiritual practice that takes you deep within to reflect on the wisdom shared and what has risen up in you.
