Join us Remotely for Worship
Sunday, 10:00 a.m.

Although we each have our private prayer life, communal worship is a cornerstone of our faith. Please join us on zoom where we can safely worship together. Follow these steps to follow the service:

  1. Download the bulletin by clicking here. You can print the bulletin or keep it open on your screen to refer to during the service. The bulletin has the meeting i.d. and password.
  2. The easiest way to join the Sunday service is to click the link in the weekly eblast which Donna sends out on Friday night.
  3. If you are not getting the eblast please click here to register or call the church office or email the webmaster at webmaster@christchurchmanhasset.org
  4. Download the Zoom app ahead of time
  5. We trust this sortware, so please say "Yes" when you are asked, "Do you want the following program to make changes to you computer?"
  6. OR if you already have zoom installed, you get into the service by using the meeting i.d. printed in the bulletin
  7. When prompted, enter your name or just your initials
  8. If your computer has a microphone and a camera, you can participate. Otherwise, we are happy to have you silently following along
  9. Questions? Email me at webmaster@christchurchmanhasset.org. This looks complicated. We are taking some additional steps to make this service open to all worshippers and yet free from zoombombers.

Sunday Worship Services:

8:00 a.m. - Holy Eucharist
10:00 a.m. - Choral Eucharist

During the school year, the Church School children attend Sunday School at 9:15 in the Parish House. They re-join their families in church for communion.

Participate in the Service

In addition to clergy participation in the liturgy, we also have a large group of lay-people who regularly assist at the Eucharist. This includes lectors, intercessors, lay-Eucharistic ministers, acolytes, choristers and members of the altar guild. Young people in junior and senior high school are also encouraged to participate as lectors and intercessors.

Prayer List

The Parish Office maintains a prayer list of names for the intercessor during the Prayers of the People. You may put the name of a person who is sick or who has passed away. You may also put the name of a person for clarity on making a decision or in need of support. If you would like to include someone's name, please contact the office by telephone or email with the person's first name. Their name will stay on the list for one month, unless specified differently.

Pastoral Care

The Rector or a trained lay minister is available to visit you in the hospital or at home. Please click on counseling if you would like to meet with the Rector privately.

Bible Readings
