We are in Eastertide

Increase, O God, the spirit of neighborliness among us, that in peril we may uphold one another, in suffering tend to one another, and in homelessness, loneliness, or exile befriend one another. Grant us brave and enduring hearts that we may strengthen one another, until the disciplines and testing of these days are ended, and you again give peace in our time; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

~A Prayer in Times of Distress (BCP)

What a time to be the Church. The Spirit is before us. Jesus is King of the World. We are not ceasing from being the church–how could we? The Spirit of God has made us who we are. We will be in this new place as God’s people. And we will love God’s world with courageous love.

 

How We Will Meet

All of our gatherings (large and small) will meet online via Zoom. Here is the link to our public gathering space. And here is a detailed guide providing all the instructions for Zoom via computer or phone. Our Sunday morning worship will be recorded each week and shared on Sunday evenings on our Facebook page.

Loving Our Neighbors Together

The City Schools are ramping up to provide breakfast and lunch bags for students and families affected by the loss of school lunch. The distribution sites will be spread throughout the city. They need volunteers to work at these drop off points (and one of them is Venable Elementary). If your family needs access to food, or if you want to volunteer at one the distribution sites, here is the info.

Support Cville is a wonderful aggregate site for those of us wanting help–and those of us in need of help.

UVA Cares is a resource available to anyone in our community in need of information about the recent expansion of unemployment insurance benefits under the CARES Act. You simply fill out a form or call, and someone from the project will be in touch

Street Sheet Resources is a complication of local resources available to individuals in Charlottesville or Albemarle during the COVID-19 epidemic. It is updated regularly with new and changing information.
