A WORD from OUR PASTOR
Greetings in the name of the Lord!

As I'm sure all of you are aware, Christian worship is a time of showing affection to one another as an expression of our love in Jesus Christ. But ever since the discovery of germs, viruses and bacteria, these expressions of affection have sometimes conflicted with our need to keep ourselves healthy in the church. For instance, did you know the reason we take communion from little individual cups is because of the discovery of germs? Prior to this discovery, communion was always taken from a common cup. (Yes, even among Presbyterians!)
