Hi Friends,

With so much politic unrest in our country, God in his kind providence has us studying a passage of Luke that speaks directly to how we can experience peace.  God has got a good word for us and I’m looking forward to hearing it through Pastor Ian.

Also, with the new guidance given by the State and the City, we are returning to the original 10% capacity that we had in October and early November of 75 people per service.  We are grateful that our mitigation efforts seem to be working as, to the best of our knowledge, we have not had a single case of COVID be transmitted at a service.  Let’s stay vigilant with our mask wearing and distancing protocols, so that we can continue to enjoy worshipping in person together.  You can RSVP here https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-church-south-philly-31522935663?s=125255171

Whether in person or online, I can’t wait to worship with you on the best day of the week!

Pastor Jeff
