Dear SSOTH family and friends-like-family: With prayer and lots of e-mail conversations with council, the worship committee, the choir and the A/V team, it was decided that, given the rise in the Omicron variant, the 7:00 p.m. Christmas Eve service will be held by zoom only. Sunju and I will be in the sanctuary, the choir will record their anthem and the hymns, but the rest of the service will be live on zoom.
We would still like to offer the Quiet Service at 6:00 p.m. for those who would like a quiet time of reflection for about 20 – 25 minutes, with piano accompaniment, no congregational participation, candle light and Christmas lights. Enter the sanctuary in silence and simply sit in silence.
From the beginning of October until last week, the little taste of new found freedom felt good and we thought we were out of the woods so to speak, but I am grateful that we have the technology and skilled audio visual team that enables us to offer the Christmas Eve service safely.
We are still meeting in the sanctuary tomorrow but as always by zoom as well. Please stay safe and healthy in body, mind and spirit. Blessings. Rev. Debra
We do not levitate, everything we do is on this ground, this earth, this place. Surely God is in this place. Get to know “this” place and discover holy ground.
