Important Updates

Annual Congregational Meeting

The Annual Congregational Meeting will take place on March 10th, 2024, after a combined service. The service will start at the usual time (10 AM), followed by a brief luncheon and the Annual Meeting in the Fellowship Hall. We ask all members to note the date and be present for the meeting if possible.

Cold Weather and Cancellation Policy

Cold Weather Entrance
Due to cold weather at this time of year, we will no longer open the main doors on the Broad St./Mt. Vernon St corner of the building that lead directly to the Sanctuary. We are asking all members and visitors to enter on the Mt. Vernon Street Side Door (just a half block up Mt. Vernon from Broad Street on the side of the church). Someone will be nearby to allow entry into the building, or you can ring the doorbell located on the left-hand side of the door.

Potential Cancellations
We make every attempt to continue services in the event of winter weather. If a service can not occur for any reason, we will always post notice of a cancellation as early as possible on our website and social media (Facebook and Instagram). If you wake up to inclement weather, please check these sites for any announcements, or send a message to our facebook page to ensure you don't travel out needlessly. A short stream featuring the readings, propers, and prayers may be made available later in the morning for all those interested - this would be posted on our facebook page.
