The Emmanuel Vestry adopted a comprehensive Reopening Plan to guide us for the foreseeable future.  On Sunday August 9, we will begin in-person worship in the church yard at 8:00 am with the Sunday Morning Prayer service, weather permitting. We will continue our live 10:00 am Sunday Morning Prayer services on Facebook which is then posted on our Sermons tab.

There are many details for having in-person worship in the church yard which is outlined in this video.  Please review the video if you plan on attending  and check back on the website for any updates.

Covenant for Regathering

I promise, to the best of my ability with God’s help, to abide by the guidelines of the Diocese of Rhode Island for participation in church as we regather during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In faithfulness to the Baptismal Covenant (BCP p. 304-305), I will strive to:

Love my neighbor as myself, by…

▪ Wearing a mask or scarf over my nose and mouth at all times in church buildings, except momentarily to receive the sacrament or lead worship by an assigned speaking part, and following public health guidelines for hand sanitizing and disinfecting.
▪ Only attending worship if I am non-symptomatic for the COVID-19 virus or any other transmittable disease that could compromise the health of another person also attending.
▪ Abstaining from attending worship if I am concerned that doing so would be too great a risk due to my own health status.

Respect the dignity of every human being, by…

▪ Making no physical contact while at church with people beyond the members of my own household.
▪ Maintaining a six foot or more distance from other members of the congregation.
▪ Respecting any requests for distance, masking, cleaning, and disinfecting to ensure the safety and comfort level of others.

Seek and serve Christ in all people by…

▪ Supporting the decisions of my diocesan and congregational leaders.
▪ Staying connected with others in my community by telephone, video chat, mail, or other means.

This is our expectation for all those who wish to worship with us in person. By
participating in our worship, you assume responsibility for following the above, and
acknowledge the risks of participation in an in-person gathering.

Restart Emmanuel ‘s Newsletter

*We’re taking your suggestions for names!

I have heard from a number of you that Emmanuel has not had a periodic newsletter for a number of years. After these now almost four months of COVIDtide — the liturgical season that absorbed Lent, surrounded Eastertide, and now takes us into Ordinary Time — the present seems like the perfect time to re-start Emmanuel’s long-dormant newsletter, and possibly with a new name.

We’ve done our best during COVIDtide to stay together by staying apart, as we were saying at the beginning of our time away from the church building. We have reinitiated Morning Prayer, ……

Morning Prayer Service @ ON the Lawn - Emmanuel Church
Aug 9 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

We will begin in-person Morning Prayer on the church lawn at 8:00 am weather permitting. The Reopening Planning Group (RPG) has been working hard to get ready for our first in-person services, including signage, check in procedures, and socially distanced spacing. One entrance to the parking lot will be blocked off by cone so that traffic is directed one way. Please bring a folding chair, wear your mask, and stay 6 feet from other people who did not arrive in your car. A greeter will meet you at your car and direct you to the marked socially distant spots on the sidewalk to enter the main church gate (not the office gate). The greeter will have extra masks if you forgot yours.
