Meet Vicar Christian!

Christian Cedarstrom 2 welcome 400 If you would like to have a chance to get to know our new intern, you can contact Vicar Christian to set up an outdoor visit! It's an awkward time to get to know folks in a new community, but we can be creative and figure out how to do this with masks on and six feet between us!

Outdoor Service - Physically Distanced on the Lawn

We're plannning an outdoor worship service with proper physical distancing and masks on Sundayat 9:30 - music begins at 9:20.

BYOC--BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR! There will also be the opportunity to remain in your car as you participate in worship. The service will still be live-streamed for those who don't yet feel comfortable coming out.

If the weather does not cooperate we will move inside and either way, the service will be live-streamed on Facebook ) as it has been so that all may have access.
We loved gathering last week with some of you in person--and with all of you via the internet!

High School youth and others needed for outside faith in action painting project!
August 8th

Roger Stedman is working with Vicar Christian along with Tina Lundgren and Neighbors Helping Neighbors RI to pull together a big team of volunteers to paint a house. We hope the high school and middle school youth will take the lead! It will probably be a weekend project. If you'd like to put your faith into action with a paintbrush in hand, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We really want to hear what you think....

...about worship, live-streaming, gathering in small groups....Will you take five minutes and please fill out this survey?

The church council wants to make sure we are in touch with your thoughts about what we are doing now to worship as a community--and what we might consider doing in the future.

We know there is a hunger to gather again, to sing together, to share the meal of communion.....to be the church in all the ways we are used to. But for now, we will use every safe avenue available to us to be the church at worship, in learning and through service in creative, sometimes new, ways.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback and share your hopes for the future - link to the survey.

New Small Groups - Wed. Women's Bible Study

Small groups can help strengthen and nurture each other in this time limited by physical distancing. Mary Congdon would like to start a women's bible study group. We are considering how to meet--inside, outside--and also considering when best to begin--August or September. If you are interested, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Pastor Lisa will also be offering a virtual book discussion group open to anyone starting in September using "I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness". watch for details.

If you would be interested in helping create another kind of small group, let us know what kind! Hiking biking, gardening, serving...... anything that will bring us together in spite of the physical distance we are required to maintain. We're looking for new opportunities to explore our call to love kindness, seek justice and walk humbly with God.

From Bishop Jim on Communion and Re-Opening Churches for Worship

Lisa Stoen Hazelwood sized I wanted to share with you two videos and a written document Bishop Jim has prepared as resources for congregations. The church council is referring to these as we manage things during this time and make decisions about worship and community life going forward. Link to first video. Link to the second. Link to the bishop's letter.

If you have feedback about anything related to worship: - comments about the livestream, - about last Sunday's parking lot worship, - thoughts about doing an outside worship service BYOC ["Bring Your Own Chair" outside on the church lawn, etc. contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The council will be doing a Congregational survey once the governor has made her recommendations for phase three--probably by July 1st. You will also be receiving a letter next week about the council's decisions about resuming in-person worship services.

I hope you are willing to be patient with us as we seek to offer a safe and also spiritually meaningful worship experience to our St. Andrew partners--without putting our most vulnerable members at risk. Peace be on the process.
