May 2, 2021 Service

Here AT LAST is the link to today’s service:

It took extremely long to upload this time, for some reason.

The recording is longer than usual, since it contains three hymns and our regular service music as well.

We had a technical glitch with the “screen sharing” function in the first half of the service, so the words to the first hymn and the Prayer for Illumination are missing.  Fortunately, Raymond was able to get it figured out by the second hymn.

The service script is here.

THE 5TH SUNDAY OF EASTER

2 May 2021

Online – Circumstances have again forced us to move our Sunday services online, so our services are again being held by Zoom, live, at our regular time of 10:30, today and for the next three Sundays, at least.  Each week’s service will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube, for the benefit of those who are unable to join us in real time.  As usual, each service will be available until the following Sunday, at which time it will be deleted from the YouTube channel. 

The link to the Zoom meeting is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84737316742?pwd=ZjZWYTgyTzBWR2RkZ1BOUy9nVlVuUT09; it will be the same every week.  

After the service, the link to the recording on YouTube will be e-mailed out, along with a copy of the service script.  In addition, hard copies of the script can be printed and mailed out to anyone who would like them.  If you would like to receive them, just call John at the church office.
