This Sunday is Palm Sunday. I would love to have a virtual processional, but I need your help. I am asking everyone of all ages to either make a palm leaf or grab some kind of leaf from your home and take a video of you waiving it. Get creative! You can text the video to 309-357-0132 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Here is sample pattern or you can make your own!
Join us as we journey through Holy Week. Next week, Monday April 6th – Thursday April 9th, at 7:30, we will have a study based on “Entering the Passion of Jesus” by Amy Jill-Levine. You can join us through Zoom at https://zoom.us/j/159967508
Stay at Home Order
Maryland, DC, and Virginia have issued stay at home orders enforcable by fines and/or jail time. If you need to be out on essential business, please let Chris know and he can send you a letter to protect you while out.
Until we are able to worship together, we will worship through Zoom on Sunday mornings at 10:00, You can sign in with this link – https://zoom.us/j/159967508 or call in at 1-301-715-8592, using meeting ID 159 967 508. When it prompts you for a user id, simply hit the pound sign. We will try worshiping by Zoom this Sunday at 10:00 using the same link. A video of Sunday worship will be posted shortly after it is completed.
Several people have asked how they can continue to make their tithes and offerings while we are not meeting in person. There are several ways. You can mail a check to the church. You can give online through paypal https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=KJTC62AUPNWCE&source=url You can also set up a payment through your banks online bill pay feature. Paypal charges the church approximately 3%, so please consider either consider giving through one of the other two ways or adding 3% to your offering to offset the fee.
Cure for isolation
Many of our members may feel isolated. We have had someone step up and offer to try and teach zoom, google hangouts, facetime or other tech programs to better reach out to friends and family. If you would like help with that, please email me at email@example.com and I will set up a time.
If any of our members who are “at risk” do not feel safe running errands, we have put together a team to help you out. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in touch with them.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the food pantry this past week. They were very appreciative!
