Livestreaming Worship in a time of COVID-19

Greetings to you in this uncertain time. We are heeding the advice of our bishop,Bishop Egensteiner who has asked churches to postpone or cancel all in-person gatherings, including worship services, events, meetings, and bible studies, until we know we can meet in person safely. With much regret, we are taking this to heart and following his strong recommendation.  It is a sacrifice we make as an act of neighbor-love. We are still a church family and physical distancing does not need to mean social or spiritual distancing. We are bound together in Christ. Consider reaching out to others by call, text or email to check-in and see how things are going. Let them know you are thinking of them and praying for them. If you are healthy and can help someone who is more at risk get food or other needed items, that may be a kind and generous thing to do. Starting Sunday, March 15 at 11am, we will live-stream a time of music, prayer, scripture reading and sermon. You can join worship by going to FACEBOOK LIVE https://www.facebook.com/TLCofNYC/live/  or  YOUTUBE http://tinyurl.com/TLCofNYCYouTube
Following live worship, all are invited to a Zoom coffee hour and we are happy to welcome all newcomers.
 A recording of the service can be accessed later as well.  The puppets Gabby and Sandy share a children’s message each week: https://tinyurl.com/TLCofNYCGabbyandSandy available from 9am on Sunday. This is anxious time and it’s important to know that we are never alone! God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in time of trouble. Psalm 46 Love and peace that passes understanding, Pastor Heidi

Night Prayer

Every Wednesday at 7pm, we are offering live-streaming Night Prayer. Night Prayer is a way to take a few moments to rest in the calm and mercy of God, a time of breathing space, a time when we can lay the stress and uncertainty of the day before God.You can find it at: www.Facebook.com/TLCofNYC. It will remain up and available after the livestream ends. “God who made the earth and heaven darkness and light, Who the day for toil has given for rest the night, by your angel guards defend us, slumber sweet the mercy send us, holy dreams and hopes attend us all though the night.”
