In-Person Worship
Suspended



Due to the rising rates of Covid in our community, it has become necessary to suspend all in-person worship services through at least January 16th. We will continue to monitor the Covid rates of infection to determine the safest time to return.

Online worship services will continue to be offered every week.

Asbestos Abatement takes place
Week of January 10th
As preparations continue for the beginning of our Livestreaming Ministries, as well as the hosting of Loop Ministries, 5 rooms will undergo the abatement of asbestos under their floor tiles. Thank you to Linda Northrup for coordinating the bids and helping communicate these building needs to the Congregation Council.

At its December meeting, the Congregation Council approved the abatement of our new Livestreaming Room, Pastor's Office, and the Auditorium Rooms A12, A13, and A14. The work will be performed by Rock Environmental.

To this end, we are hoping that our Livestreaming equipment will be ready for installation later in February. The timing of the installation depends on the availability of equipment currently delayed by supply chain issues.

Thank you to all who have contributed or are planning to contribute financially to the Livestreaming equipment. Due to so many generous gifts, we anticipate the costs of the equipent and installation to be covered entirely! We are truly blessed by your generosity!!
Church Office Covid Restrictions

Due to the rising numbers of Covid infections and Omicron's ease of transmission, we are asking that if you need to stop by the church office in the coming days and weeks, you call ahead and make an appointment with Carole. The church office continues to be open Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. As always, our goal is to keep everyone safe by minimizing in-person contact. Carole may be reached at 244-6065.
