Notice about Worship Schedule Going Forward…
Until further notice, we will continue with the pattern of each Sunday having a 10:00 a.m. Zoom devotion as the “principle” service and a 9:00 a.m. “in person” service on the Rectory Lawn (weather permitting and social distancing rules in effect). The Second and fourth Sundays will have an additional 5:00 p.m. “in person” service on the Rectory Lawn (weather permitting and social distancing rules in effect).
About “In Person” Worship on the Rectory Lawn
10360 Rectory Lane, King George, VA
These will be the standard services from The Book of Common Prayer. There will not be copies of any materials provided. So bring you own prayer book. The lessons for the service are downloadable and should be brought with you if you desire.
These services will be held weather permitting. Social distancing rules will be followed. So, if you wish to sit, you will need to bring your own chairs. The Rectory proper is currently off limits, including the bathroom. But people are welcome to stay and chat afterwards on the Rectory Lawn – just follow the social distancing rules!
While these services will not be broadcast / streamed / Zoom, no one should feel obligated to attend “in person” gatherings.

About Weekly Zoom Sunday 10:00 a.m. Devotions
The PDF of the service text is found here: http://data.hwbkgva.org/pdfs/SundayBullein.pdf
Please remember to remain “muted” during the devotion unless you have an assigned portion. This is to avoid the problems with the sound distortions created when Zoom attempts to merge multiple audio feeds simultaneously.
After the devotion, there will be announcements, followed by a general open ended “coffee hour.”

About Returning to “In Person” Worship in our Sanctuaries
The general consensus is that most in our parish are not ready to return to the sanctuaries for regular in person worship and probably will not be for several months. We will continue with Zoom for regular Sunday worship at 10:00 am for the foreseeable future. As always, please email me with your thoughts: email@example.com. Thank you!
