ReOpen Task Force Update:
Due to the recent developments regarding the coronavirus and masking guidelines, we want to affirm that if you attend a service without a mask it is understood that you are fully vaccinated. If not, we ask that you please still wear one. This is for your safety as well as the safety of others. Many in our congregation who are vaccinated continue to wear a mask, which we welcome. In addition, for the next few weeks the 8:30 service will not have congregational singing, while the 11:00 service will. We want to encourage those who are concerned about the safety of singing in a group to attend the 8:30 service. We hope that as more persons get vaccinated in our community, we will see transmission reduced. If you have not yet been vaccinated or know people who have not been, please meet with your healthcare provider to explore your options. Vaccinations are how we will all move out of this pandemic. Thank you for your patience and faithfulness.

Presbyterian Women start back September 14!

Presbyterian Women meet each month (September through May) for inspiration and fellowship through Bible study and involvement in various types of service.

They meet on the second Tuesday of each month, 9:45 - 10:45 AM, in the church parlor. Study leader is Nancy Faye Williams.

This year they are studying What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from Women in Matthew's Genealogy of Jesus.
Room 211, Barr Conference Room

“Today's families face challenges not too different from the first families of the Bible. The drama experienced in Genesis happens within stories about families, and the issues they raise-married vs. single life, sibling rivalry, infertility, family relocation, blended families, and the like-and are startlingly relevant to families of today. This book examines the families of Genesis, starting with Adam and Eve. It also looks at the sibling rivalry of the Cain and Abel story and points to the jealousy and violence to which the whole human family seems addicted. Carolyn Helsel and Suzie Park invite readers to consider these connections as they reexamine modern family life as well.” Register HERE.
