Services and Church School

Dear Friends,

We have had a glorious summer worshipping under the tent since July. It is now time to move inside for 8am 10am services beginning this weekend. YOU MUST MAKE A RESERVATION BY WEDNESDAY 11:45PM BY CALLING THE PARISH HOUSE AND LEAVING A MESSAGE.
508-678-0923
To make things fair to those without email, all requests are to be made by calling the church office. They are taken down in the order received. Please call and leave a message at 508-678-0923. NO email requests are available at this time.
If a particular service is filled, you will be offered the next available spot at the other Sunday service. Calls are taken on a first come, first served order.  If I service is full, you will be notified.  You may also see if there are any spaces available Sunday morning by checking with the usher.
The office will have a list prepared with your reservation (name, number attending, phone number) for the ushers at each service.
You MUST make a reservation each week unless you are a listed server for that particular service.
Once again: We are limited to mathmatical capacity in the church based upon regular seating in the pews. The call into the office is the only way we can keep the playing field as fair as possible to accomodate those without commputers.
We will continue to livestream on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/christ.church.swansea.57

On another note; Church School will resume October 25th at 9:45 in the Parish House. We are looking for teachers and helpers. Our approach this year is a team teach approach. Teachers and helpers will only need to serve once or twice a semester. No experience is needed. If you can read a bible story and help with glue and glitter you are being called to this ministry of the church! NO advanced theological degree or experience necessary :).
If you have questions please contact Christina Peterson, Ruth Flanigan or Fr. Alan.
We do need your financial assistance, as best as you are able.
Contributions may be mailed to the church

Please contact an usher if you should have any questions.
  * Criteria for exemption: The CDC states that a person who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the face mask without assistance should not wear a face mask or cloth face covering. POLITICS are not an exemption. WE have the right to refuse anyone we deem needs to wear a mask.
  • Individuals with respiratory disabilities such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or cystic fibrosis may not be able to wear a face mask because of difficulty in or impaired breathing. People with respiratory disabilities should consult their own medical professional for advice about using face masks. The CDC also states that anyone who has trouble breathing should not wear a face mask.
  • People with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe anxiety, or claustrophobia (an abnormal fear of being in enclosed or narrow places). May feel afraid or terrified when wearing a face mask. These individuals may not be able to stay calm or function when wearing a face mask.
  • Some people with autism are sensitive to touch and texture. Covering the nose and mouth with fabric can cause sensory overload, feelings of panic, and extreme anxiety.
  • A person who has cerebral palsy may have difficulty moving the small muscles in the hands, wrists, or fingers. Due to her limited mobility, she may not be able to tie the strings or put the elastic loops of a face mask over the ears. This means that the individual may not be able to put on or remove a face mask without assistance.
We are a joyful community celebrating Jesus Christ.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!
