  • A Regathering Update!

    The Regathering Team has been meeting throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and is pleased to convey these updates to the congregation:


    Summer Worship

    During the month of July, worship will continue on Zoom. With hearts full of cautious optimism, we are looking forward to worshiping in the sanctuary starting on August 8th. We invite people who feel more comfortable to join in the service online as it will be live-streamed. For those who attend in-person, we will adhere to mask-wearing, 6-foot distances and not more than 150 people. Thanks to Jane Ring Frank’s focused attention on the guidance around indoor congregational signing, we will be singing together (with masks on)!


    Please share this news with your friends and family.


    The Building

    The building is open from 7 AM – 3 PM Monday through Friday. Small group meetings can take place in Ripley Chapel, the Palmer Room, and the Health Ministry office. Please contact Sarah Marino in advance to reserve a room or to inquire about facility use.


    In this transitional time, we are asking you to wear a mask and keep an appropriate distance from others in our common areas out of respect to those who may be vulnerable among us.



    We pray that the health of our community continues to improve and that we can return to the traditions and customs that we cherish. We will make decisions in August for the Fall about gathering limits for the sanctuary, Ripley Chapel, and Chidley Hall, as well as other considerations. We expect to be worshiping in a hybrid way (in the sanctuary and live-streamed) with gradually loosening restrictions, but we are taking a wait-and-see approach.


    Yours in Faith,


    The Regathering Team: Ed Banzy, Will Burhans, Regina Campbell, Kate Carpini, Jane Ring Frank, Sarah Gallop, Jake Greenberg, Maggie Keeler, Sarah Marino, Doug McCall Taylor, Bill McCarter, Kathy Mortensen, Susan Rozmanith, Jennie Ryan, Andy Spiegel, and Kathleen Zagata
