Virtual Sunday School
Sign-up for 10:00 a.m. In-Person Worship
We continue 10:00 a.m. in-person worship this Sunday. We look forward to seeing many of you. We encourage those who are not comfortable worshipping in-person at this time to watch the livestream of the Worship Service on our website, our YouTube Channel, and Facebook page. Registration and all protocols laid out in previous emails will still be required for 10:00 a.m in-person worship. Seating will be first-come-first-served and restricted to spots marked by yellow dots. Please disregard the reference to price as this is a quirk of the sign-up system. Worship, like God's love, is of course always free! With God's grace, we are finding our way through difficult times so we can celebrate the Lord together.
The Organ has Returned to the Sanctuary!
We are excited to see our organ make its way back to our Sanctuary! The technicians are still working on connecting everything to have the organ up and running. You will see it in the Sanctuary on Sunday, but it will not be operable for a couple of weeks. Thank you to all hands involved in getting it moved in.
