Please email me back or text me if you plan to attend on Sunday.
The seating in the Nave has been rearranged so the choir can be on one side together. We continue to keep our safe distancing (6 ft apart). Masks are also required except when receiving communion. Bobbi seats people upon arrival. Overflow seating is in the Fellowship Hall and Narthax as well. We had 34 people total last Sunday while maintaining the safe distancing and could have seated more.

Disaster in Beirut: Thank you for the generous donations for the disaster assistance in Beirut Lebanon. I sent a check from the church for $1,085.00 this week.

Thank you again for all the prayers and for those who reached out to me to check in.
