OUR FIRST ON-SITE WORSHIP SERVICE was scheduled for Sunday, August 2, at 9:30 a.m. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. We will try again on August 9. If the weather does not permit, we will still have online worship available on You Tube with a prompt on email from Pastor Elizabeth.
There will be no fellowship before or after the service. Please bring a lawn chair, water, face mask and an umbrella if you need it for the sun. For communion we will use the little cups that we have been using for drive-through communion. The service will be on paper. Please pick up these two items before you take your seat. Locate your lawn chairs with your families and 6 feet away from others.
This worship will not be like others, but we will still be worshiping and praying – the two essentials. We hope to see everyone in person or on-line. Stay safe and wear your masks.
