Grace and peace to all of you during this challenging time. Our faith insists that the Spirit binds us together as the body of Christ, even when we cannot be together. We might find comfort in the letters of Paul, who often wrote to the early churches from a distance with words like we find in the opening verses of Philippians: “I thank my God every time and remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you” and “how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus.”
Please know that you all are in our prayers at Setauket Presbyterian Church. If you would like us to pray specifically for you or someone else, please email Pastor Kate at [email protected]
. The SPC session will be meeting each Wednesday night and will pray for each person on our prayer list on behalf of the entire congregation.
And though it will feel especially hard not to be together for Holy Week, we will gather virtually to share Christ’s story and our own stories in several different ways. Please read through this entire email for important information about worship services and fellowship opportunities during this special time in the Christian calendar.
Thursday, April 9, 7:30PM Maundy Thursday Zoom Dinner Service
We will gather for worship to remember the Last Supper, share communion, and reflect together. All are invited to have a meal, or some bread and juice, ready for our time of communion. Do not feel confined to our usual elements – we welcome you to use whatever you on hand for this time of sharing. We will be able to see each other around our own tables on this holy night when we walk with Jesus on his journey to the cross. This service will not be livestreamed, so please either log on to Zoom or call in to share this time together using the link or dial-in number listed above. Please contact the church office for Zoom information.
