St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run.  We  are a collection of people with different
needs and  concerns and yet we are called to a unity which grows  from
joining together in worship of God, the Father,  the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Each of us has different  God-given talents which we are called to use to  
witness to our faith in God's love revealed through Jesus Christ.  We are
called and empowered by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in our
faith in Christ and to welcome them into the life of our congregation.

Dear Friends in Christ,

By now I am sure that you have heard that Gov. Hogan has suggested churches might reopen
with restrictions. Both the national ELCA office and the DE-MD Synod have also issued some
guidelines to follow in reopening. The first is legal. We must be in compliance with both the
state and Carroll Country restrictions. Second, we must have a plan for safety that our
insurance will approve of. We are beginning to work on this.

I know we all want to get back together, but I want to caution you, this is not going to happen
by this Sunday, and when we do, our worship will not be what we are used to. We will be
back in stages. We will also continue to record services for those who cannot come out. I
hope to have a letter ready to go out next week with more information. So, please, be patient
with us. We will continue to worship online this Sunday and probably next Sunday. By then
we should have a plan in place to report. God bless, and stay safe.

Blessings, Pastor Linda
