While all onsite Lenten activities and programs have been suspended due to our church closure, every effort is being made for groups to meet virtually when and where feasible.

Welcome to St. Columba's
Welcome! While our church building is currently closed, our parish community is vibrantly alive and present. Walk with us during these uncertain times as we remain connected as a parish community, worship online, and continue to share the Good News and serve our neighbors. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to care for one another and all of God’s beloved – those within our congregation and those beyond. How can we serve you today?

Come Worship With Us This Week
Sunday, April 5, 2020 - Palm Sunday
Bible, Coffee & Conversation
9:15 am – Discuss the scripture readings for the week and reflect on their meaning for our faith journeys and St. C's mission in the community with David Griswold. In the interest of keeping the discussion groups small, Joshua Daniel will lead a second session at the same time. Contact either David or Joshua to join their sessions.
Youth Sunday School
12 noon – Youth Sunday School is happening this Sunday via Zoom video conferencing. Contact the Youth Council for call-in instructions.
5 pm – Enjoy this service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day recorded by a small group of St. C's singers. Based upon the traditional evening liturgy of scripture, music, prayers, and silence, Sung Compline will be offered on Facebook and YouTube. Come listen, and sing along with us at home.
