The Corona Virus (COVID 19) and St. Michael’s

Update March 27

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Another week and another wave of restrictions in the continued effort to slow the spread of Covid 19. Here are some ways that the “stay home, stay safe” ordinance is affecting St. Michael’s:

  • The church is closed to the public. You can still contact me and other staff members through email or through leaving a voicemail message, but the church building is closed.
  • The worship for this Sunday will look much different from last Sunday! Curious? Now that we cannot gather even a small group of people, we will use the magic of Zoom to invite more participation. This is another experiment for us and we are trying our best to learn how best to “sing the Lord’s song” even while we are exiled from one another’s physical presence.
