As Rev. Nathan mentioned in his Christmas Eve sermon, we are living in a time of fear, confusion and uncertainty amid rising cases in this pandemic that just doesn't seem to go away. Through all of this, we must above all remember our commandments to love God and to love each other. We wish to remind you that our services continue to be live streamed on Facebook or from our website, stpaulstjames.org. For now, we will continue our hybrid approach with the live stream and in person worship, where we are following physical distancing (thanks to our new chairs in the sanctuary) and proper masking protocols. We will continue to monitor COVID cases and reassess the situation, and will keep you informed if anything changes.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to either one of us if you have any questions or need help figuring out how to access the live stream!
This Sunday, January 2nd, we are planning a service of Lessons and Christmas Carols. Also, it will be the last Sunday that Andrew Fermo, our assistant music director, will accompany us with his piano. Please join us remotely and do not come to the Church if you are not fully vaccinated AND boosted, or if you have ANY symptom of a cold or allergy (fatigue, sore throat, cough, congestion, fever, etc.). Thank you, and stay well.
Grace and Peace,
Claire and Brian (with the consultation of our resident infectious disease specialist and trusty treasurer, Dr. David Hill)
