Due to the increased number cases of COVID-19 in our county and school moving to remote learning for grades 7 - 12, our Sunday morning worship services are moved back to online Zoom worship only. Please be sure to sign up for our email list so you will receive the liturgy and zoom link in your inbox. The zoom link is the same every week, and can also be found here. Any device with a camera, microphone and good internet connection will work! Sign on at 9:30 a.m. to work out technical bugs and fellowship with others. All are muted and the service starts at 10 a.m. Stay tuned as we will continue to reassess (next review Jan. 10) when in person worship may resume.
When we are able to gather in person, we will be following all the Health Department guidelines set up by the county for reopening buildings, including wearing masks. The seats are required to be 6’ apart and only family members will be allowed to sit together. Unfortunately, congregational singing is not currently permitted, but music will be a part of the service. At this time food and drink will not be allowed. We are unable to host fellowship time following service and Sunday School will not be meeting, but has at home packets for families.
Sunday morning worship services at the Schoharie Reformed Church are a spirit-filled and engaging time of glorifying God, confessing our brokenness, hearing the promises of God’s Word, and responding with our gifts and our praises. Our worship services are held at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings from September through June, and 9:30am for July and August. The worship services center on the faithfulness of Scripture and the unfolding story of God’s love for us as told in the Bible. Our worship is corporate as we believe each member of the congregation is meant to be an active participant in the worship service. We have a weekly liturgist who leads the “call to worship” and reads the scriptures. We also welcome the gifts of the congregation in offering special music, displaying art, sharing testimonies, and sharing other gifts in worship. We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every other month (October, December, February, April, June, August) and on some holidays. Corporate worship is an important time for us to glorify God, to share in the fellowship of the community of faith, to grow in our understanding of God, and to be sent out to join the work of the Holy Spirit in the world.
We believe a community of faith includes all ages! Children of all ages are most welcome in our worship services. The voices of the young keep us grounded and are cherished! Activity bags are available for kids to use during worship and a “Time for Youth” is a regular part of our Sunday morning gathering. Kids are invited to participate in helping lead services at various times.
Come as you are! Come!
