THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Episcopal Student Fellowship Sunday Worship Proposal
Episcopal Student Fellowship (ESF) would like to hold weekly worship services at 6pm on Sunday nights, beginning on Sunday, August 30th and recurring each Sunday until Thanksgiving break (last service being on Thursday, November 12th).The service will be held at an outdoor, on-campus location (to be reserved through DeaconSpace, pending event approval) at 8pm. Students will sign up to come to the service ahead of time, and there will be a 25 person max on attendance, including the leader of this event Student Chaplain Audrey Groves.2 students and Audrey Groves will arrive at the location 15 minutes early to ensure the space is set up with chairs 6 feet apart from each other and to sanitize all surfaces. As students arrive, they will check in through the CORQ app. The service will begin at 8pm and last for one hour. Students will sit in chairs arranged 6 feet apart from each other and will wear masks for the entire service. There will be no singing or communion. A normal bible study will include a group reflection on the week, and a group discussion about the bible while members are 6 feet apart and masked. If microphones or any other devices are used, they will be sanitized between each use/speaker. At the conclusion of the service, 2 students and Audrey Groves will remain to sanitize all of the chairs and any other surfaces that people might have come into contact with. It is vitally important for bible study to be conducted in person in order for personal relationships to grow and a sense of community to be fostered, especially for new members (freshman) who aren’t as familiar with ESF. This group is meant to provide support to all of its members during the good and bad times. An in person weekly check-in and bible study will allow leadership to better support and understand the needs of the individuals and group.
Thursday, October 1 at 8:00pm to 9:00pm
