Worship from Home

 

 

Though we can’t be together in person, there are many ways we are still being together virtually as a community! Join us at one of these services, learning opportunities, or for prayer.

Isaiah 41:10   Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Join Us for Weekly Intercessory Prayer

If you are anxious about the election, overwhelmed by COVID, weary from the heat and the fires, stressed out about online schooling, or grieving the racial injustice in our nation this is a call to pray together.

Our goal is to encourage each other as people of God who embody faith, hope, and love. Join us each Tuesday from 2-3pm.

St. Jude’s Taizé Recorded Services

Welcome to St Jude’s Cupertino Tuesday evening Taizé service. The service is about 25 minutes long and includes several chants, a psalm, a reading, a short silent reflection, intercessions and a group prayer. The music and readings are right on screen to make things easier for you to follow. The tradition of Taizé is to sing the simple songs many times, as a prayer and meditation of the heart.  For more information on the Taizé community, please visit www.taize.fr. Co-leaders are Mair Dundon and LeMel Firestone-Palerm (ukulele). Recordings will be uploaded weekly. Please note that there are no recordings for July and early August when our leaders take a much deserved break!

Compline Prayer Service Recordings

St. Jude’s has offered a Compline prayer service for many years at different times throughout the year. Compline includes psalms and other Bible lessons, and tends to be contemplative and emphasize spiritual peace. It’s a lovely way to unwind and be calm in the midst of the busy storm of our lives and of the anxiety of these times. Our Rector Aaron Klinefelter and our Assisting Priest Penelope Duckworth lead these short 10-15 minute services.
