A few hints for participating in online worship

It can be difficult to view an online service bulletin and a worship livestream on screen at the same time. Some ways to solve this problem:
1. Print the service bulletin. PDFs are easily printed on your home printer. Use your browser to navigate to the online PDF and then choose "print" under your browser's "File" menu. 
2. Use a second device, such as a laptop, iPad, tablet, or Kindle. If you are watching the livestream on your computer, use your tablet or other web-enabled device to follow the link to the service bulletin and use it to follow along.
3. If neither of these options works for you, you can follow along with the service using a Book of Common Prayer and a hymnal. Beginning this week, Rev. Suzanne has added BCP page numbers to the service PDF. We STRONGLY recommend using bookmarks to mark these pages before worship begins! Our services jump all over the prayer book, and you will find it much easier to follow along if you have marked the pages in advance. Most of the hymns are from The Hymnal 1982.  If you do not have a Book of Common Prayer and/or Hymnal, and would like to borrow one, Tom Ellis has volunteered to deliver copies direct to local mailboxes: email Rev. Suzanne at revsuzannewade@gmail.com.

Summer at St. Mark's


Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to gather in person. But the Church is the people, not the building, so wherever and however we gather — online, offline, at our own dinner tables or in shared prayer — we are the Body of Christ. We invite you to connect with us this season through these online opportunities for worship, study, and service. 


COVID 19 UPDATE: St. Mark's Episcopal Church continues to worship online only. For more on this decision, please visit our blog at: https://stmarkwestford.blogspot.com


Community Garden:  St. Mark’s has planted its plot in the community garden with a variety of vegetables for the Westford Food Pantry, including beans, cantaloupe, tomatoes, and squash. If you have a few spare plants left from your own garden, let Paul Ackroyd or Jonathan Jilesen know, and we’ll see if we have room to give them a good home! Donations of salt marsh hay for mulch are also always appreciated. We are also welcoming volunteers to help weeding and watering: contact Paul or Jonathan to learn more. 


Feeding the $5000: We're almost there! We've raised $4880 toward our $5000 goal for local food pantries. Can you help us cross the finish line? Click on the red "Donate to St. Mark's link below to give online!

Drive-Through Back-to-School Blessings. Feeling anxious and worried about back to school this year? You are not alone! Kids, parents, teachers, and everyone who loves them are feeling the stress of trying to plan for the start of a new school year in the midst of pandemic uncertainties. You are invited to join us in seeking God's guidance and strength to help you and your students through the school year. Rev. Suzanne will offer prayers for safety, learning, confidence, and personal growth for the year ahead to anyone who would like a blessing on Sunday, Sept. 6, 4-5:30 p.m. in the church parking lot. Families will remain in their cars and drive up one-by-one to the steps of the church for a personal prayer and blessing. 

 

Holy Communion to be offered beginning September 13.  On August 6, our bishops issued new guidance for offering Holy Communion during the pandemic. Although all current restrictions regarding gathering for in-person worship remain in place, the bishops have authorized the distribution of pre-consecrated wafers so everyone can participate in communion during online worship services. Watch for more details during the first week of September regarding opportunities to receive communion.
