We are no longer required to take temperatures; however, we are still asking everyone attending to sign in and to wear a mask while in the sanctuary. Singing during the worship service has resumed. All guidelines will be posted in the sanctuary and should be reviewed before being seated. 
The Briggs `ohana is gracing us in June by alternating sharing their messages of Christ’s love with us. This week we are eager to welcome Jessica Briggs once again.
