We wish you and your family
a Joyful Christmas!

Please read this message
for udpates on
Christmas Eve and
Sunday, Dec 26
Worship Services

Our Bishop, Rev Thomas Bickerton, sent a message to all the churches in New York Annual Conference, asking us to review our practices to keep our congregation safe as we experience the sudden and significant rise of the Delta and Omicron variants.  We all want this to go away. Yet, new challenges are presenting themselves and we must address them responsibly.
We will be having
in-person and Zoom services on
Friday, Christmas Eve at 5:00 pm.
Out of concern for all worshipers, each person will be masked, sanitizer usage will be required, contact tracing procedures will be followed, and socially distanced seating with restrictions on public singing will once again be employed. We ask you to consider the risks of possible exposure to the virus as positivity rates rise and you and your families’ health.
Worship Services on Sunday, December 26 will be via Zoom ONLY.
We strive to offer the best Zoom service possible to all worshipping from home.  This is all in response to our mandate to do everything possible to ensure the safety and well-being of our congregation.
Church Council will soon make a decision about in-person services going forward.
We will notify the congregation when a decision is reached.
We want to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved so people can enjoy Christmas and celebrate the birth of Christ together with friends and family.
