Now that states are beginning to re-open, we are gathering data from the CDC, the governor's and mayor's offices, our bishop's office and other synods, in order to determine a timetable, safe practices, and cleaning procedures for re-opening GA. The school will continue remotely through the end of the school year, none of the building partners are meeting, so the building remains closed for the time being.
Regarding activities, we continue our Wednesday night study and discussion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Life Together - we will be beginning at 6:30 with an opportunity for study and discussion. The evening will conclude with Evening Prayer, beginning at 7:00 PM.
Please virtually join us on Sundays at 11:00 AM EDT and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM EDT:
Even though GA's building is closed to all activity, ministry continues. You can make your offering online. We have multiple ways to give: Vanco, Venmo, Text to Give, and PayPal.
