Gathering Together Again

The leadership of our church has been talking about the steps we will need to take to safely gather together again for worship and fellowship. The Conference has prepared some detailed guidelines for re-gathering. There are a number of requirements that will make worship look very different from what we are accustomed to. We are putting together a group to help us address these issues. The Conference suggests that we form a group to oversee the process. Would you to be a part of this conversation? Please contact Pastor Tom ( or 434-906-5959). Thank you!
Masks Needed
If anyone is making masks that they are willing donate, we have 2 church members in need of some. You can drop them off at the church and Staci will arrange for delivery.
Thank you!
