Good news! Our re-opening plan has been approved and will are reopening for in-person worship beginning with one blended service at 10AM on Sunday, July 26.  We will resume initially , in the Family Life Center. The Task Force will monitor the variables, including attendance and the rise/fall of COVID19 cases in our county, and make the decision to return to two services as soon as it is deemed possible. We will live stream the service for those who prefer to continue worshiping at home.

Please read the July newsletter, as it contains all the information you need to know about the protocols. The most important protocols are:
1) Masks are required at all times for the congregation and social distancing will be maintained
2)  Families/household groups must sit together and children are to remain with their families.
3)  There will be no congregational singing, coffee hour, Sunday School, Kids Rock, or nursery at this time.

FUNDRAISER FOR TRUE PURPOSE WOMEN’S CENTER

Since we’re all staying home more, now is a great time for Spring Cleaning! When you purge your closets and basements of serviceable but unneeded clothing and household items, please save them for a yard sale we will hold to benefit this worthy cause.  The sale will be held when gathering restrictions are lifted…watch the bulletin and newsletter for more details to come!

 
BE A BLESSING – PASS IT ON
 
Our church has a “Blessing Box” outside the building.  Please keep our blessing box in mind when you shop, and remember to pick up some non-perishable items to contribute.
