 OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES:

As we continue this time of social distancing, you are invited to worship with us online (via Reverend Timm’s Zoom account or our Facebook page) every Sunday morning at 9 am (Eastern Time Zone).  Please visit the Worship With Us page of this website for information about how to join our virtual worship service.

THE FOLLOWING ONLINE OFFERINGS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM ST. CHRISTOPHER’S:

FROM SATURDAYS THROUGH WEDNESDAYS, REVEREND TIMM READS MORNING PRAYER AND COMPLINE ON OUR PARISH FACEBOOK PAGE.  SHE WILL BEGIN MORNING PRAYER AT 9 A.M. AND COMPLINE AT 9 P.M.  

BECAUSE SHE IS USING OUR FACEBOOK PAGE AS A PLATFORM FOR THESE PRAYERS, YOU CAN LISTEN TO THEM LIVE, OR AT A LATER TIME, IF THAT IS BETTER FOR YOU.  

Our Wednesday night Bible studies, led by Reverend Timm, have concluded for the summer.  They will resume again in September.  Watch this website for more information.

But this is what I can ask for you.

That in the darkness there be a blessing.

That in the shadows there be a welcome.

That in the night you be encompassed by the Love that knows your name.
