From Pastor John…
We are doing all we can to keep people healthy as we meet on Sabbath mornings.
Here are a few reminders:
1. Make sure you are well by self-screening: take your temperature before attending a service. (If you are over 100.4°F, please stay home.)
2. If you have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, please stay away from services for at least 10 days.
3. When you do come, wear facial coverings and keep socially distant.
Together we can do our part to alleviate suffering and sickness in our congregation.
Our Church Board is recommending a 12 month extension of church offices due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Those currently serving are being asked to continue on through June 30, 2022. According to the Church Manual, the Church Board will take care of offices that come open until next year, when we will set up a regular Nominating Committee. This action is dependent upon approval by the Church Body. (Please direct any questions or comments to the Administrative Pastor, John Bryson.)
