In person worship resumes Sunday, May 9th at 10am at Linwood Spiritual Center, Mill Road, Rhinebeck
The vestry has approved the resumption of in person worship, as long as it is deemed safe to do so by local and state health officials as well as on the advice of trusted members of the medical and scientific community. We are hoping that on Mother’s Day, May 9th, at 10 AM we will be able to gather safely out of doors at the open air pavilion at Linwood Spirituality Center here in Rhinebeck, rain or shine. It is a beautiful site overlooking the Hudson River and has plenty of room to gather safely. More details will be forthcoming, but our hope is to be able to celebrate communion once again and we will keep you all posted. We will meet there through the summer until our church is ready and it is safe to gather again indoors for worship. The service will be broadcast via ZOOM and will be recorded for YouTube.
