7:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. In-Person Holy Eucharist
How to Prepare and What to Expect in Online Services
Simple, right? Not dressed up, but wear something that marks this as a different sacred time – a time different than hanging out in bed. Have a cup of your morning beverage and enjoy.
Prepare Your Heart
Settle down in front of your computer 5 minutes before to breathe, center yourself, and be open to a new way of praying together. Whoever jumps online earlier, we’ll chat until noon.
Pass the Peace
Use the Zoom chatbox when you enter the service. Use the chatbox to say, “Peace be with you from [your name]”?
Sing Loud, Sing Bold!
It will sound like you are singing along with Music Director Phil. The “host manages the audio.” We will mute everyone during group readings and singing to avoid feedback. While we can’t hear the congregation sing together, listen with your heart. You’ll watch everyone’s lips move because we’re movers and shakers for Christ!
You can offer your prayers in the chatbox during the Prayers of the People. You can also send them to us before the service (Saturday) to include.
Think of Someone
We will read the Eucharist service rather than share bread and wine. Could you please call someone with a cheerful phone call after you sign off from the service and coffee hour? That act is genuinely sharing the body of Christ with your voice and heart. You can just plan now who you will call; friend, family, or acquaintance. They’ll hear the joy in your voice.
Stay for Coffee Hour
After dismissal, the meeting will stay open so we can chat and have coffee hour online. It’s lovely to check in and share how it’s going.
