Senior Pastor's Note

Reverend, Peter Hey
Rev. Peter Hey

Dear Ones,

The number of COVID 19 cases has dropped in both Wilmington and our surrounding communities. As long as the numbers continue to decline, we believe it is safe to begin planning for "in-person" worship for those who are comfortable doing so. If you, for whatever reason, are not comfortable with "in-person" gatherings yet, we understand entirely, and we will continue our online ministry. Please communicate with the office and register for all "in-person" gatherings.

Palm Sunday is March 28. If the weather permits, we will have an outdoor gathering to distribute Palms. We will start gathering at 9:30; we will have limits on the number of people based on requirements that are in place.

Maundy Thursday is April 1. At 7 pm, we will have an outdoor service of Holy Communion. The Sun will set at 7:20 that day.

Good Friday is April 2. We will not gather "in person," Jamison will work with our confirmand to create a YouTube Tenebrae service that you will be able to watch on this sacred day.

Easter Sunday is April 4. We will have at least two services. One will be at 9:30 in the sanctuary, and the second will be outside at 11 am.

Please note that these are tentative plans. Safety remains our top priority, and if we need to alter these, we will do so and keep you informed. We share them with you now so you can make your plans for these celebrations.

In Christ
Peter Hey
