This past Thanksgiving Sunday, the church offered the same service two ways – in-person, outside, with masks and physical distancing, and broadcast live on FaceBook and Zoom from the sanctuary.
About 26 people attended the outdoor service. The weather was beautiful. It was wonderful to see all who were there. This was the first in-person worship service at the church since March 15.
Years ago, the Thanksgiving service was routinely held outside to remember the Pilgrims and indigenous people eating together outside. So, we resumed an old tradition for a new reason!
The broadcast service worked out well also. There were a few technical glitches, to be expected, but overall, things went smoothly.
Many thanks to all who helped to make these services happen including: Earl Waters, Don Ritchie, Kay Rencken, Bill Parsons, Colleen Coughenour, Julian Ricciardi, Wally LeBlanc, Mark Gibson, Danielle Hintz, Hilton Jones, Jeff Wells, and Malcolm Wells.
For the first three Sundays of December, there will be in-person outdoor services. And for Christmas Eve, there will be the same service on Zoom/FaceBook Live at 5:00 p.m. and in person at 7:00 p.m.
