September 12, 2020

Beginning this coming Sunday September 13, 2020 we will begin live streaming Morning Prayer Service from Saint Alban’s on our very own YouTube channel! Morning Prayer will begin at 9:30am.  Since Allen County is in the color Orange in regard to Covid numbers we are able to have a few people in the building to preform the service but unfortunately no more than that. We are very excited about being able to stream from the building and hopefully this will give some of you a little comfort to be able to see our Sanctuary. We will of course be following all of the guidelines set forth by the Diocese so that everyone stays safe. With this technology we plan to continue live streaming the services even after we are able to worship in person so that anyone that isn’t able to come may still be able to follow along with our church services.

There will be a virtual coffee hour on zoom after the service for anyone that wants to check in and chat with everyone. If you would like to join us for Zoom coffee hour contact us at: info@saintalbanfw.org

We will post the recorded service on our Facebook page and it will be archived on our YouTube channel, so if you are unable to attend during the service time you can always watch at a time that is convenient to you.

Service Announcements

Due to COVID-19, Saint Albans Fort Wayne has suspended all services and in-person activities until further notice.

However you may visit The Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana for updates within the Diocese and the leadership in our Diocese has also put together a list of daily prayer services for everyone in our faith communities. During this trying time it is extremely important for all of us to hang on to our faith. Since we are unable to worship together in person these different services will allow us to worship together virtually. They are still working on adding a few more service opportunities and we will send those out when we have them. Continue to stay safe and remember to pray for all affected by COVID-19.

Congregation Assessment Tool

As you are all aware a few months ago our search committee interviewed several people in our congregation to find out their thoughts on how they feel the church is doing in several different areas. This was the first step that we needed to take to work towards the collaboration with Grace and in finding our next rector. We are currently still sorting and processing the outcomes of those interviews. The next step we need to take is asking everyone to participate in the Congregation Assessment Tool survey or CAT which is an online questionnaire to aid us in determining what is truly important to the congregation as a whole. This will help us determine how we move forward in this process. We will have from May 19th thru June 2nd to complete this process. Below is the link that you will need to go online to fill out the questionnaire. The process takes up to an hour to complete and must be completed all at once. For those of you that have problems doing anything online or if you don’t have access to the internet, we will have members available to assist you with this after the 8:00 a.m. and after the 10:15 a.m. services on May 26th and June 2nd. We will also have available print outs of the survey if you would like to take one home and fill it out. We just ask that you return this to the church by May 26th so that a member of the search committee or a vestry member may have time to input all of your answers by the June 2nd deadline. I strongly encourage you to fill out the questionnaire so that we will have a more accurate analysis of how the congregation feels and how to proceed from here.
Remember that this is our church family and everyone’s opinion matters so please consider taking part in this survey. Like I have said before, this is going to be a challenging year for all of us but I know that you love Saint Alban’s as much as I do and really want our church home to be here for many years to come. We are a small yet mighty parish and I believe that God has a plan for Saint Alban’s.
If you have any questions about this process or anything else that is currently going on within the church please contact Jordan Trendelman or myself.

Thank you
Cindy Spice
