A word on gathering for worship
We’ll again be at Star Hill Ranch this Sunday for worship. Star Hill Ranch is located at 15000 Hamilton Pool Road, about a mile west of Highway 71. We’ll be streaming the service live on www.facebook.com/ecclaketravis.
If you do not feel well, or are showing symptoms of COVID-19 please enjoy worship from home on Facebook Live. If you do not see the livestream at first, try refreshing the page. It should appear near the top of the “Posts” feed. You do not need a Facebook account to watch the livestream.
Bring and wear a mask. Wearing a mask is how we love and protect the wellbeing of our neighbor. So for the sake of our own health, and the health of those around us, please bring and wear a mask. Please put your mask on before you get out of the car. Since we are outside and will be observing 6+ feet of distance between households, you can take your mask off briefly for a sip of water and to receive the Sacrament, but otherwise please keep it on.
Bring a chair. There are no seats where we’ll be gathering, so please bring your own chair.
Bring a hat just in case you are seated in a sunny area. You may also want to bring some sunscreen and bug spray. We’ll have water bottles available, and activity bags for the kids.
Arrive a few minutes early. With our new safety protocols, it will take a few minutes for everyone to get seated, so if you can arrive early that would be great!
If there is rain, we will still be outside. So if it looks like it could be wet, come prepared!
There is access to restrooms that require ascending a few steps and walking about 20 yards from the worship area.
We want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to receive from the table. If you are more comfortable receiving communion at home, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll gladly share in the table in your backyard, or front yard, or wherever works best for you!
There will be a PRIZE! for the best “Category Mashup Costume!”
Reminder: The categories are Church Histoy 101, Texas, and 80s movies. Who can blend Martin Luther or St. Teresa of Avila with Texas style and 80s hair? What sporting look will you don to emulate an early Anglican with a penchant for KISS-style eye make-up and cowboy boots? The options are endless! See you then!
