Zoom with us this summer!

Rev. Claire and Worship and Music Action Team decided to keep our services on Zoom this summer. We had to plan pretty far in advance, so a sudden pivot to in-person was not possible and not preferred by WMAT. We feel staying on Zoom through Labor Day allows everyone a chance to slowly and steadily get used to public life again. Plus–we can reap the benefits of online worship a bit longer and hear from folks who ordinarily wouldn’t be available! A live person from our Lay Ministry or Worship and Music team will host every service and offer a time for Joys and Sorrows; some preachers will be live and some will be pre-recorded. Here is our current preaching schedule for the summer:
