Pick up a communion kit
I will email the service to everyone before Easter, so you can use a tablet or your phone to view the services,
Also, I will have the service on the screen
If you want a hard copy of the service, let me know... firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-483-6968 opt 1
We will have music, but we will ask you NOT TO SING or sing to yourself... Churchwide is recommending no singing because particles carry faster through singing. Yet, if you sing to yourself very low (whisper)... it would be the same as talking.
We are having two services to spread folks out and allow for visitors.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
God is with you!
