Restrictions for indoor worship services

We will continue to gather in person outside Saturday at 5:00 p.m. for Mass on the Grass and Sunday at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. With new CDC guidance and Broome County entering into the substantial new Covid cases zone, everyone will wear a mask when entering and exiting the sanctuary and when in line for communion. You may mask throughout the service and please return to distancing. We encourage everyone eligible for the Covid vaccine to receive it for their own safety and for the love of neighbor. Our Sunday worship is live-streamed and recorded through our YouTube channel: Christ Episcopal Church Binghamton.

No offering plate will be passed. Gifts will be collected online or in plates placed near the Church entrance.

Parking in the Metro Center parking lot is available. Press the button and take a ticket to enter. Please leave the entry ticket in the car so that it is readily available when exiting. Ushers will provide a ticket which you will need to exit. Both tickets will be needed in order to exit.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 11!

To remember the people who lost their lives and their land, we would like to hold a service of remembrance at the Newtown Battlefield state park on September 11. We will read the Thanksgiving Address which is offered before every Haudenosaunee council meeting to honor the ways in which they relate to creation. We will also offer our own prayers for reconciliation, contrition, and hope.

Following our service at 11:00 a.m., we will have a picnic. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. We have reserved a shelter for those attending.

Carpooling will be available should anyone need it.

We do need to have some idea of the interest in this event, and would appreciate an email note from anyone who would like to attend.

We are looking forward to this event as part of our participation in the Diocesan Racial Reconciliation team as an opportunity to enlighten ourselves and honor those who died there, both colonists and indigenous peoples.

Prayers & Prayer List

I cannot tell you how the light comes, but that it does. That it will. That it works its way into the deepest dark that enfolds you, though it may seem long ages in coming or arrive in a shape you did not foresee.

And so we pray we may turn ourselves toward the light giving thanks for Christ’s birth and this communion. May we lift our faces to let the light find us. May we bend our bodies to follow the arc it makes. May we open and open more and open still to the blessed light that comes. *

With thanks to Jan Richardson*

A Word From Your Junior Warden


Prayer for our Country:

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
