In consultation with our vestry, our bishops, and public health officials, the current conditions of the pandemic in Texas and Jefferson County have led us to make a change in our plans. Starting January 24, we are planning on holding our 8:00am and 10:00am worship services outside on the church grounds. This will keep everyone safer as we go through what is looking like the worst phase of the pandemic yet. We're trying something new here, so it may take some trial and error as we figure out how to do it well.
There is good news in that, worshiping outside means we can sing all our hymns once again and no longer need attendance limits. I ask for your patience as we seek creative ways to gather in worship intimately yet safely.
Be sure to bundle up on cold days and bring an umbrella on rainy ones. We've talked with a lot of other church communities who are doing all of their worship outside and they've said its messy but it works, and they've found ways to have fun with it (picnic worship, anyone?).
