Prepare for Worship
August 22, 2021
Homer United Methodist Church
In-Person Worship Temporarily Suspended
This week, over half a dozen local restaurants closed due to staff members testing positive for COVID. Our local numbers continue to rise, and there have been a few vaccine breakthrough cases.

With the start of in person classes in the school district with no masking requirement, it is likely that cases will continue to rise.

In an abundance of caution and care, we are once again suspending in-person worship on Sundays. Worship services will be broadcast on Facebook and YouTube at 11 am on Sunday mornings.

Please stay safe!
