Church Relaxes Many Pandemic Restrictions
*No reservations or temperature checks for church attendance.
*Masking and social distancing for fully vaccinated people are optional. Masking is required for all non-fully vaccinated people. Non-vaccinated people are also required to observe social distancing. To facilitate this, the signs for designated socially-distanced seating in the church will remain. If you are not vaccinated, please sit in one of those spots and maintain social distancing. If you are seating yourself in a pew with someone who is masked, please ask permission of those already seated there. Fr. Wand intends to wear a mask.
*Debbie Ney will return to play hymns and other music.
Many thanks to her daughter, Amelia Wilber, an outstanding musician in her own right, who provided vocal leadership on the recorded hymns we have been using up until now. We will be restarting our pattern of using the electronic keyboard in "piano" mode for music on the last Sunday of each month.
*The Offering plate will be passed as in times past.
*Communion will be administered in one kind (bread only) at the altar rail. Please leave some room between you and others at this point. If you wish Communion brought to you in the pew, notify the priest by raising your hand when he inquires at the close of Communion administration.
*The procession will also revert back to the original procession of times past.
Communion after the service will be administered on the first Sunday of each month. (Next Date: Sunday, July 4).
Instructions are below. Please note changes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Church Office.
Bob and Gale Spencer Can Use Support
Bob Spencer is undergoing an extensive series of procedures and has been in and out of Crozer Hospital. Our Senior Consultant in charge of keeping track of Resurrection folk at Crozer, Wendy Dargay, has an excellent suggestion that reaching out with cards or emails to them (through Gale at 403 Nashville Court, Wallingford, PA 19086 or firstname.lastname@example.org) would be especially valuable right now. Please make our parish's love and support visible by combining continual prayers with active reaching out at this particularly difficult time.
Assistance with Livestreaming Needed
We will be recruiting folks to aid in the livestreaming of worship services. Celebrating the Eucharist, supervising the camera and music, and checking on the outgoing video is more than can be done by one person deftly. More news about this later.

Outreach Programs Continue
We continue receiving contributions and disbursing funds to the food pantry. We have collected $17,000. Thank you!
Readers/Intercessors Needed for Worship Services
With the installation of the new camera, audio, Internet, and streaming equipment, worship is no longer a solo by the Priest celebrating. Parishioners are needed to read lessons and lead prayers--one per service. If you can help, please leave a message at the Church Office. The use of a single person to help with worship each Sunday will continue beyond the pause of in-person worship.
