We are no longer requiring proof of vaccination for in-person gatherings, and facemasks, while strongly encouraged, are not mandatory. In the days and weeks ahead, let’s continue to care for and respect one another as we allow for new approaches. And, as always, let’s be ready to adjust if the conditions worsen.
If you have any questions, please contact one of our Wardens (Nancy – 647-0144; Blair – 434-2475; Marshall – 433-4517) or Fr. Sean (434-4684). Many blessings everyone.
Small Groups during Epiphany
Upper Corner Café (St. Mark’s, Thurs at 10), Men’s Bible Study (St. Mark’s, Sat at 9am) and Women’s Bible Study (Trinity, Wed at 9:30am) will all continue as normal through the season of Epiphany. Please note the new groups below:
- “Contemplate Corinthians” – Wednesdays, 2pm, Jan 11 – Feb 15 | There is nothing more ordinary than followers of Immanuel encountering bumps on the road; and there is arguably no church more famous for their bumpy ride than “the church of God that is in Corinth” (1 Corinthians 1:2). Join us at Trinity on Wednesdays from 2-3pm, to explore the Sunday Epistle readings from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. All are welcome to come and “Contemplate Corinthians”!
- Epiphany Poetry and Prayer – Tuesdays, 7pm, Jan 10 – Feb 14 | If you are looking for some quiet time out of your week as we head into the new year, please join us on Tuesdays at 7-8pm by Zoom. We’ll explore an Epiphany poem by Malcolm Guite as part of Evening Prayer. No experience required and all are welcome! If you’d like simply to listen without your video on, please feel free.
