DECEMBER 20, 2020 FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Happy Sunday, Saint Stephen’s Family!
Two items below.
(1) Christmas Eve Drive Through Communion – Thursday, December 24, 4:00 pm. We will have a drive through Christmas Eve communion at 4:00. A small disposable sealed communion cup with consecrated bread and wine (see link) will be distributed. Approach from the south on 12th street in front of the church (from the direction of Erwin First Baptist Church). An acolyte will bring the communion cups to your car. It is recommend that you save the cup and consume the sacraments while watching the recorded Christmas Eve service later that evening. Fr. Steve and Karen will be on hand to greet at the participants. This is likely the last time we’ll see them in person before Fr. Steve retires. So come and wish them well with a hearty wave from your car.
(2) Sunday’s service. Abiding by physical distancing guidelines and other safety measures, a small cast was able to produce our 41st virtual service!
Special note: The postlude is a recording by The Piano Guys.
THE CASTRector and Celebrant: Father Steve Teague Crucifer: John Todd Lay Reader: Kathy Tuttle Organist: Mark Gibbons Video: Michael Wells
You may watch the church service here:
The hymns are 56 (v 1-5), 265, and 66.
Let’s watch the service at 11:00 am Sunday together as a church from the safety of our homes.
Virtual services will continue for the foreseeable future. We are following Diocesan service guidelines which require our county to be under certain thresholds and have stable or declining case rates. Harnett county is still above those thresholds and the number of COVID-19 cases is currently climbing. Stay tuned.
I look forward to seeing you in person soon!Michael B Wells, Senior Warden St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church – Erwin NC
