Not being able to come together in God's Presence on Sunday (something the Church has been doing for 2,000 years without, up to this point, missing a Sunday) is really hard on the people of God. We come for spiritual nourishment. We come for fellowship in the Body of Christ. We come to strengthen our discipleship.
... and now we're all stuck at home. A lot of good things are happening in our Church anyway. People are making an effort to reach out and connect with each, to share information, to give encouragement, and to lift each other up in prayer in praise and thanksgiving before God. We are also reaching beyond the membership of our own parish to connect and share the same love with family, friends, and neighbors, and we are doing so because we are, and always have been, God's people.
And we are learning how to put worship services and sermons on video and post them to YouTube. Look for the channel, Joseph Farber. Please like and subscribe to get notified of new videos when they are posted. It's a new way to do what we've always done, connect as Christ's Body in the world, and share the Good News.
All Church activities have been canceled for the time being due to the coronavirus.

Our church family takes great pride in extending a warm and sincere welcome to the many seasonal visitors who come to worship with us as well as newcomers to the area who are searching for a new church new home. Indeed, this hospitality has become a core element of the Church of the Transfiguration identity.
