"Welcome to the Delaware Headwaters Parish"

Welcome! We are glad you have joined us today!

"Promise me you'll always remember, you're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"    A.A. Milne


We are planning to reopen our four churches for in-person worship on Sunday July 5 with the DS’s permission. We need sufficient time to fully clean up the buildings in order to reopen. A list of rules we must follow from the Bishop will be published on the website and  in the next newsletter.  Please take precautions and  observe all the new rules and regulations. We are looking forward to seeing you soon! 

*Please stay safe and healthy. 

*Please pray for each other, our volunteers, our Federal/State Government Leadership, essential workers and all the scientists who are doing their best to develop coronavirus vaccines.

* We wish to thank all our volunteers who have so generously given their time and efforts to the continued growth and sustaining of our 4 churches and the Parish.  

*A “NYAC Covid19 Emergency Food Response” account has been set up within the Missions Office to support NYAC church-based food ministries.  Donors may go on the NYAC Website, www.nyac.com, and click on the “Make Donation” tab on the right panel. Direct your gift to “Emergency Food Response.”

*We would like to encourage all our parishioners to keep sustaining and empowering your giving ministry to the righteous cause of Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior in transforming this broken and wounded world into God’s kingdom in these critical and unprecedented days until noticed otherwise as follows:

Please mail your tithes and other offerings to your church’s financial secretary.

Unison Prayer

Gracious God of mercy, we thank you for your presence with us each and every day. As we gather this morning in our virtual community, may you bind us together. Lift up our faith; we open our hearts to you. We don’t know the future of your church, but you do. We ask that you prepare us to serve and celebrate the ministries you place before us. Give us eyes to see humanity as you do. Give us ears to hear your voice, give us guidance in our hour of need. We give you praise for you are the giver of everlasting life. Fill us again with your spirit. In Christ’s name we pray, AMEN.
