We may be physically apart, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still church together!
Are you missing worship? We have some ideas!
- Livestream the service from the National Cathedral at 11:15 on Sunday mornings here.
- On your smart phone or computer, go to “podcasts” and subscribe to one that provides morning prayer daily. One example is “A Morning at the Office” by Forward Movement.
- Join the rest of St. Paul’s parishioners in prayer on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 PM. Stop what you’re doing and say a prayer by yourself, as a household, or together on Facebook (St. Paul’s Episcopal Maumee Christian Ed).
Looking for spiritual nurture?
- If you have your printed Lenten devotional materials, continue to work through those.
- Looking for more? There is a course on Prayer and Worship in our Homes that has been made available for free during this crisis. You can take the course here.
- Families with children and youth can sign up for free weekly resources send to you via e-mail here.
- The Bible Project is offering weekly resources (and their resources are usually very well-done): click here to sign-up.
- The Episcopal Church provides weekly Bible studies based on the Revised Common Lectionary readings. These would be a great way to keep studying the Bible. Click here for the homepage.
Missing the community at St. Paul’s?
- Log in to our “virtual coffee hour” on Sunday mornings at 10:30 on Zoom. Zoom allows us to see each other’s faces and hear each other’s voices – what a gift! The link will be posted here.
- Join us on Zoom for our Lent series every Wednesday at 7 PM. Again, the link will be posted here.
- Join our Facebook group, “St. Paul’s Episcopal Maumee Christian Ed” on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 PM for prayer together.
- We would like to create a phone tree and card ministry for those without access to all of these digital opportunities. Please contact Jennifer if you would be willing to help!
Want to help your neighbors?
- We are asking parishioners if they could use deliveries of groceries or medicines. Would you be able to volunteer to help in this way? Let Jennifer know.
- What other opportunities can you think of? This is the time for the faith communities to come together and demonstrate God’s love.
This post will be updated quite regularly with more opportunities as they arise.
Peace be with you!
