On Sunday, January 23, at 10:30AM, we will hold an in-person worship service in the church and also make it available in 'live time' over Zoom.

Given the shaky internet at church, the Zoom experience may be a little glitchy.  If you experience difficulties, please let Rev. Catharine know (after the service) so she can try to address them.

Use the button below to join the service over Zoom, or, to join by telephone, dial 301 715 8592 and punch in Meeting ID: 827 6276 3261 and Passcode: 411356

Old Durham News & Notes

Thank you to all our pledgers!

We warmly welcome you to our "Old Durham" Parish Community.

 We worship on Sundays at 10:30AM.  Our current pattern is to offer in-person worship in the church, live-streamed as a Zoom meeting, despite our limited internet bandwidth at the church .

 Please do not come to worship if you have reason to believe that you have, or have recently been exposed to, COVID-19 (or anything else that might make the rest of us ill!)

Forward Movement's Good Book Club is back, reading (part of) the Book of Exodus from Epiphany through Shrove Tuesday.  It's not to late to join in!  Click the logo above to learn more.

When Charles County is in the yellow ("moderate") range, we will worship indoors with masks optional for fully vaccinated congregants except while singing. We will have at least two windows open and will monitor ventilation.  

When Charles County is in the red ("high") or orange ("substantial") range, we may worship on Zoom or in person.  Indoor worship will be with masks required for everyone, and singing will be determined week by week.  We will have at least two windows open and will monitor ventilation. For outdoor worship when Charles County is in the orange/"substantial" range, masks will be required only for the unvaccinated.  Notice of plans for outdoor worship will be posted here and communicated by email to everyone on the newsletter list.  (Sign up using the blue button at the top of the page.)
