Special Announcement:  Covid-19 and our Ministry

We continue to pray for all those who are impacted by Covid-19. This pandemic has not only brought illness and loss, but also isolation, anxiety and uncertainty. It has been a difficult few months, and the road ahead continues to look uncertain. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Over the past few months; however, we have also learned how to help mitigate some risks related to the virus. As a result, we now have the opportunity to offer some limited, in-person, events. You will see some such events in this newsletter. Before attending an event, please note:
  • Attendance at in-person events is purely optional. The core of our ministry will continue to be carried out online. Do not attend if you feel uncomfortable doing so!
  • Do not attend if you feel unwell or believe that you may have been exposed to Covid-19.
  • Events will be held outdoors and we will maintain social distancing.
  • Events will be capped at a maximum of 15 people and RSVPs will be required.
  • When not eating or drinking, participants will be required to wear masks.
  • We will avoid physical touch, the sharing of snacks/food, and carpooling.
Please do not hesitate to contact Ian if you have any questions.
Quarantine Bingo! Check Your Mail!
A lot of us have wondered how to be involved with church in the midst of Covid-19. We've shared some ideas...via a bingo board! In the coming few days you will receive a bingo card in the mail. It contains different ways to be involved. As you complete different things, tick them off! Those who get "bingo!" will get a special surprise.  If you don't receive your bingo card by next week, we may not have your mailing address!  Let us know and we will send one your way!
