St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run.  We  are a collection of people with different
needs and  concerns and yet we are called to a unity which grows  from
joining together in worship of God, the Father,  the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Each of us has different  God-given talents which we are called to use to  
witness to our faith in God's love revealed through Jesus Christ.  We are
called and empowered by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in our
faith in Christ and to welcome them into the life of our congregation.

In-person worship services will return on Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 9:30 a.m.  Social
distancing rules will apply and masks must be worn (over mouth and nose) by those in

Dear Friends in Christ,

It has been a long fall and winter as we have suffered through a second church closure and
quarantine, with more people catching the virus than during the spring. I understand that we are all
tired of it, miss our family, friends and church fellowship. I thank you for your patience during
this time. While we are not yet out of the words, the beginning of vaccine and end of holiday travel
gives me hope.

The council and I agreed that in that hope and grace we would return to worship at St. Mary’s
beginning on Sunday, January 24 at 9:30 am with social distancing, masks, and an abbreviated
service. We will have communion as we did in the fall. We will also continue to have online service
for those who do not yet feel safe returning.

Second, Ash Wednesday is February 17. We will have a social distanced service at noon that day
with imposition of ashes.   For those who cannot make a noon service I will be available for Ashes
to go from 6:00 to 6:30 pm at the food pantry outdoors or by appointment that day.

God bless you and keep you safe.

Blessings, Pastor Linda
