Worship with the Cabinet

The Episcopal Office of the Iowa Annual Conference has created a full worship service for pastoral leaders and worship teams to use one Sunday during November to give yourself rest and respite during these unprecedented times of high COVID-19 infection rates in Iowa. Or feel free to use it any time after the first of the year when you need a break.

Bishop Laurie thanks you for your tireless work during these last eight months as you have navigated being a church during the COVID-19 pandemic, used technology in ways you never expected, and learned how to virtually connect to your parishioners, community, friends, and neighbors.
