SUNDAY SERVICES STAYING ONLINE
The COVID infection rates in Shenandoah Country continue to be too high for in-person services to be safe for us all. Currently, the rate is at 182.3 per 100,000.
Given this, we will live stream worship on January 23 on Facebook Live at 10:15 a.m. and on Zoom. Mother Kathy will offer Holy Eucharist with Spiritual Communion. A reader, our organist, and Mother Kathy will be physically present in the building, masked and socially distant. The bulletin is available on our website.
We still plan to go back to in-person worship as soon as it is safe.
St. Andrew’s Annual Meeting is postponed. When more information is available, we’ll share it.
