Joint Rapidan Parish Worship on Sunday,
November 29th at Graves Mountain Lodge
to meet the Pastoral Candidate
 
  Join us on Sunday, November 29, at 11:00am at the main outdoor pavilion at Graves Mountain Lodge (Syria, VA) for an outdoor worship service to meet our Pastoral Candidate.  The candidate will preach and there will be a time for informal questions and answers.  Of course, social distancing, masks and all appropriate measures will be in place to help prevent the spread of COVID 19.  It may be cold or rainy, but the pavilion comes equipped with a roaring fireplace and heaters, so bundle up and plan to attend rain or shine.  A map and directions will be mailed to every member, and further information is available at https://www.gravesmountain.com.  Weather, COVID-19, and other factors could require changes to this event, so please check our website for last-minute updates.  We will also use our congregational phone trees to keep folks informed.

 Important Messages from Parish President
 
 Dear Friends in Christ,
 
The congregations of the Rapidan Lutheran Parish have not been able to worship together in person for the past eight months. We have experienced two socially distanced outdoor services at Good Shepherd, and one indoor service at Mount Nebo. Although we long to return to regular indoor
in-person worship, the rapid increase of the number of positive cases of COVID-19 prevents us from doing so at this time.
 
Virginia Governor Ralph S. Northam has re-imposed Phase III restrictions limiting gatherings to fewer than 25 persons. Virginia Synod Bishop Robert F. Humphrey encourages us to follow the Governor’s lead, and to consider returning to or continuing with online virtual worship. With some exceptions, we will continue to offer only online worship until we feel that it is safe for our members, visitors and friends. God calls us to love God and one another. Loving one another involves caring for each other, and we make our worship decisions with that in mind and with prayer as our guide. Please continue to check this website for changing information about our worship and other activities. Please stay safe and healthy, and don’t forget to check on your neighbors and friends. We are one in the Spirit, and with God’s help, we will come together for worship in our churches again soon.
 
Grace and Shalom,
 
Mike Sathe,
President of Parish Council
