We are gathering for in-person worship on Sundays at 10:30 am.

We are also livestreaming our services. In person worship requires a mask and physical distancing. We are also keeping our services to about a half hour in length to minimize the time we are inside together, and we are not singing hymns, shaking hands, or having coffee and fellowship time before or after worship. The building is wiped down and cleaned after each worship service.

As of August 2, 2020, our worship services are livestreamed on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.

This page will no longer be updated with links to Vespers or Sunday worship.

April 5: Palm Sunday worship and liturgy

Video of Pastor David's message for April 5, 2020

Bonus music for the offering: Here is the opening movement to Orlando di Lasso's (or Orlando de Lassus') "Lamentations of Jeremiah" (composed ca. 1575). If you'd like some music to listen to when you get to the point in the liturgy for the Offering, please do. This is about 7 minutes long, and is the first three verses of the Book of Lamentations.

The text for the music is:

The beginning of Jeremiah's Lament.

1:1 ALEPH. How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she that was great among the nations! She that was a princess among the cities has become a vassal.
1:2 BETH. She weeps bitterly in the night, tears on her cheeks; among all her lovers she has none to comfort her; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies.
1:3 GHIMEL. Judah has gone into exile because of affliction and hard servitude; she dwells now among the nations, but finds no resting place; her pursuers have all overtaken her in the midst of her distress.

Jerusalem, return to the Lord thy God.
