Wednesday Worship for kids K-6; Youth Discipleship
We are excited about Sunday School restarting next Sunday at 9:15. We will try our best to social distance and remind you that face masks are optional.
Please refrain from having coffee or refreshments for the time being. Let this be a time of joyful reunion with small group discipleship and fellowship.
We are in the process of opening our Welcome Center back up. We want to staff a second
Welcome Center for our time before Sunday School. In order to be fully staffed, we need five (5)
volunteers. Please call the church office, or let Robin (629-0365) or Carol (629-5409) know if you are willing to help. We will get this vital ministry started as soon as we are staffed.
Nursery Reopening Need
Would you begin praying about a place of service in our church nursery. We will need several Sunday School/Worship Time volunteers and paid workers. This is because of the continuing COVID issue and we have had some people move away and some have taken on other responsibilities. We are still waiting for PHASE 3 of the Governor’s guidelines to allow us to open the nursery.
Church license plates can be ordered at the information table in the foyer for $8.00. Orders can be placed today through May 2. Please note that we need payment with your order.
This year’s Acts1:8 missions experience will take place Saturday, May 15 and has a Serve Local theme.
Individuals and groups are sought to develop and conduct an activity within their community.
Persons interested can contact their Sunday School teacher or Bro. Scott Warren.
If you have a member in your family that graduated last year or will be graduating this May and would like for them to be recognized in our Graduation Service May 23, please let Marty know. We will have a slideshow of our graduates, so please bring or email those pictures to Marty by May 9.
In an effort to accommodate everyone for worship, we have removed the yellow tape from all rows in the
two middle floor sections. We realize that some people have had the full inoculation dosage and some are comfortable with closer seating. Please note that all other sections will remain taped-off for the time being.
