It’s been a difficult and sometimes stressful time for churches this year, and because of the pandemic, we have missed the joy of community with in-person services.
Our Lawn Chair Evening Prayer services on Sunday evenings at Trinity Episcopal Church in Arkansas City have been pre-empted by decreasing daylight and changing weather.
But this is also a year of new “traditions.” We have initiated a new outdoor service for our community and invite the public to in-person Lawn Chair Morning Prayer beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday at in the courtyard of Grace Episcopal Church, 715 Millington St., in Winfield.
Weather permitting, this will be our new tradition until winter conditions settle in.
Bring a lawn chair, wear a face mask and practice social distancing. If it’s cold, bring blankets to wrap in. We will cancel only if there is precipitation.
For those who do not have a Book of Common Prayer (the Episcopal prayer book), we will have some available to be used. Visit our websites, winfieldepiscopal.org and arkcityepiscopal.org, to find the service as a PDF file to preview or download.
This is an additional Sunday service offering to our community. Our recorded Holy Eucharist service will continue on our YouTube channel (Episcopal Churches of Grace and Trinity) at 9 a.m. and will be available on our Facebook pages for each church at 10 a.m.
Sometimes we all find that worshipping together helps make a little more sense of the world around us. We would love to welcome you and have you worship with us.
