Gathering Sunday 2020 Photos

Our Gathering Sunday (return from the Summer) is often held outdoors when the weather permits; however, in 2020 it was that much more significant as September 13 was the first time our congregation had gathered in person for worship since Sunday, March 8.  It was a wonderful celebration complete with masks, physical distancing and our new cantor Ema Mitrovic.

Holy Week 2020 in Extraordinary Time Photos

Despite the need to "fast from public worship" we gathered as a community virturally to mark Holy Week 2020.  The liturgies of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday in the midst of a pandemic certainly make for extraordinary time.  Read the captions to understand what was happening in that virch (virtual church) service.
