Join us for our Solemn Liturgy of the Passion for Good Friday, with the Rev. Martha Clark joined by Cindy Ingram as homilist. 

The service includes the reading of John's Passion Gospel with the singing of "Were you there when they crucified my Lord", followed by a homily and the praying of the Solemn Collects and Veneration of the Cross.

Our LIVE service begins at 6:30 pm.  Thanks be to God for declining COVID-19 transmission rates in Clarke County, where hospitalizations and deaths continue to remain low.  Because of this masks are now optional for in-person worship, but are still available in the Narthex, with hand sanitizer stationed throughout the church.

If you are more comfortable continuing to keep your distance, we understand. 

You can still join us for online worship, via Zoom, using the following link:

The Collect of the Day:  Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Ash Wednesday Prayer:  Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.
