St John's Services via Zoom

Sunday April 18, 2021  Service

Participation in this service will be by Zoom and everyone is welcome to join us.

We are delighted to have The Rev. Dr. Laurence K. (Larry) Packard as our officiant for the next several months. As we enhance our use of Zoom, we are incorporating more interactive participation during the service and are including a virtual coffee hour at the end.

Since we are not able to be together, we are only holding the first part of our usual service, not including the Eucharist (communion) portion. The service prayers, readings and lyrics to the songs in the pdf document below. During the service there are times where we pray as a group or sing individually with the music. 

You don't have to dress up (COVID home casual is fine) and you don't even have to turn on your video; you can even just join by phone. With most of us homebound on Sunday mornings, we hope that you will consider stopping by to join us in worship.

At various points of the service you will be encouraged to unmute yourself so we can pray together. We will centrally mute all at other times. We ask that before you unmute yourself that you take note of any background noises or conversations at your location. Muting and unmuting instruction are at the top of the attached bulletin. 

We try to start the service as close to 10 am as possible so be sure to access the meeting early. The session will be open about 15 minutes before the service starts.If you have questions, please ask them early.

This pdf has the entire service including song lyrics which you can follow and participate
