The CDC COVID-19 Community Level is MEDIUM. This means masks are not required but still not a bad idea! COVID exposures (being around someone who has COVID but doesn’t realize it yet) are still happening, including at church.
Our annual Church Picnic is scheduled for 20 August from 12 noon to 6pm at Camp Sun-n-Fun! Eucharist is scheduled for 3pm at the picnic.
Provide relief and help communities recover from flooding and fires
Deadly flooding and fires in southern and western parts of the US are displacing thousands and creating a financial burden on the most vulnerable. Episcopal Relief & Development is working with church and local partners to provide help where it’s needed the most. Your swift response and compassionate gift to the Episcopal Relief & Development Disaster Fund will provide supplies to help communities in Kentucky, Virginia, Missouri, California and other places make a full and sustained recovery. Visit episcopalrelief.org to make a contribution today.
The 80th General Convention of the Episcopal Church took place in Baltimore this month. You can read the summary of actions taken here. Resolutions may be examined in greater detail by going through the General Convention website.
Our COVID protocol is following the CDC guidelines for Gloucester County. Masks are not presently required. But they are still simple and effective protection. Please be sure to stay on top of your recommended vaccinations to protect all those you love.
