Remembering the Sabbath seems like an easy, though oft-broken, commandment. How does the meaning change if the key factor isn't time, but effect?
As you no doubt know, in-person worship resumes at Shepherd of the Valley this Sunday at 10:00 AM. A couple things will be different post-pandemic. Here’s a head start on the wrinkles you’ll want to know about.
SCREENS AND NEW AUDIO
Thanks to a generous gift in memory of Mark McLagan, we now have new screens and audio in the sanctuary. Hopefully, the audio glitches that plagued us in years past will disappear.
We will not have bulletins during the service. Instead liturgy responses and other worship aids will appear on screens around the sanctuary. This is already saving us thousands of dollars a year in copier costs and it spares trees as well.
We will have a monthly update sheet with long-term announcements, congregation birthdays and anniversaries, and the like. You can pick those up on your way in the sanctuary.
As we’re still wrestling with pandemic issues, liturgies will be spoken instead of sung. Also music will be shared by small groups or on video instead of whole-congregation singing. We’ll evolve as the year continues onward. We anticipate being able to do more participatory music as COVID continues to recede.
You have two options for communion now.
We would love people to sign up to read, share the Psalm and prayers, and to help set up and serve communion. See your church email for the link to sign up, or contact the church office to let us know what dates you’re interested in!
