Worship Instructions
1. The focus of the evening will be community. Get the family together for dinner early enough that all of you can be present for the service (Zoom).
2. After the sermon, some time will be given for each of you to talk about things you do together as a family, things you share, things you value.
3. Watch reverently as the Altar is stripped at the end of the service as a preparation for Good Friday.

Virtual Easter Egg Hunt
We are having a virtual Easter egg hunt this year, and we are inviting people to color eggs (real, paper, wood, candy, whatever) and hide them in a room. Take a picture of the room and send it to Jen at jennifer.e.mccabe@gmail.com along with the number of eggs hidden by 4:59 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.

The page with all the pictures will be up after Easter Vigil on Saturday night (because the Virtual Easter Bunny Jen has to do the work, yo!), so check the website around 9:30 p.m. Go hunt through the pictures and count the number you find. There will be a link to a form where you can submit your guess. Jen will let everyone know the winners on Sunday morning after church.

If you need a printable thing to color, this site has a bunch.

Sunday Worship: April 5, 2020

Happy Palm Sunday, everyone!

Click here to let us know that you worshipped with us today.

This morning’s bulletin is here.

The Zoom link for worship this morning is [redacted]. Follow the prompts and you will join the meeting. You will be muted when you sign on to prevent background noise from making it difficult for others to hear. Note: you can still log on with your computer and select audio rather than video if you don’t have a camera, or don’t want to be seen. Also, you can log on with either audio or video using a smartphone and the Zoom link.

If you do not have a camera or do not wish to join by video, you can always dial in on your phone. The number is [redacted].

If you would like to make an online gift to St. Paul’s, click here.

Select “Give to a church” from the drop-down menu for “Giving Options”. Enter St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Mount Vernon for the “Designated Parish Name” and “Designated Parish City”. (This is important because there is more than one “St. Paul’s Episcopal Church” in the diocese.)

If you are confused by this, here is a YouTube video showing how to fill out the form.

You are also welcome to mail your pledge to:

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
415 S. 18th St.

Sunday Worship Cancelled

Dear congregation members and any who bless us with your presence at St. Paul’s,

Following a directive from the Diocese of Olympia, we are temporarily cancelling our weekly church services.

Out of concern for what is now acknowledged to be a global pandemic, not to mention the first documented occurrence of COVID-19 in Skagit County, we will suspend services beginning this Sunday, March 15, and until such time as we receive a directive from the Bishop to resume. We will keep you updated on further communications we receive from the Diocese.

In the meantime, we are looking into ways that we can continue to share the Good News with you as the Jesus people. With the help of the Diocese, we will explore options ranging from video to live streaming to worship together, even if virtually. Please check back for updates on this.

**UPDATE** We will be live streaming Morning Prayer on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. over on our Facebook page. You do not have to have a Facebook account to watch it. The video will be posted on the Live Stream page of this website by 10 a.m.

We look forward to worshiping together with you online this Sunday!
