You are invited to join us for worship on Sunday at 10:00 a.m..  If you wish to join us in person, please plan to register.   The link for registering is: register for worship   .  Should you change your mind after you have registered, you may cancel your registration at any time.  While the numbers keep fluctuating in our county, persons have been receiving (or have already received) the vaccinations, and more and more places are opening for larger numbers, we are still exercising care for our more vulnerable population here at church.  Our mantra as a denomination and as a people is “do no harm” and we endeavor to make that our reality as well. 

When you register to attend, there are some guidelines that you will receive.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE follow them carefully.  There is no eating or drinking allowed in the building and during worship we ask that you not sing.  We know this is very different but it is our way of trying to insure a safe environment for everyone. 

If you are more comfortable continuing to watch at home, not to worry!!!!  We will continue to provide that opportunity on our YouTube channel indefinitely.  Tune in on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and watch the livestream or go back and watch anytime.  Whatever your choice, please join us.

As United Methodists we observe our sacraments in “community” and not in isolation.  That means we offer opportunities for baptism and/or communion when the community of faith gathers and participates.  We have found deep significance and meaning in our “special and individual touches” included in our sacraments here at Woodridge UMC.  Our desire is to maintain these intimate and personalized details.  However, the pandemic has made it very difficult to do so.

So, if you are interested in being in community and joining others for Holy Communion, we offer that opportunity via ZOOM on Sundays at noon.  Please let me know by 6:00 p.m. on Saturday ( ).  You will receive the liturgy and ZOOM link on Saturday evening.

And yes, we have some children (with their families) awaiting baptism.  We need to spend a little more time figuring out all of the details regarding our livestream and our policy with children appearing on our social media.  Thus, we are looking to have a more definitive word about baptisms in early June.

We miss you and we look forward to being with you!

Blessings and peace.
