June 11, 2020 – Study and Prayer
Return to in-house Adult Bible Study has been postponed until July 20, 2020.
Friday’s 7 a.m. prayer will reconvene in the sanctuary on July 3, 2020 (mask & social distancing).
May 28, 2020 – Transition back to in-house worship, study, fellowship, etc.
At the May leadership and Conference meetings we established several committees (to include in -house experts, i.e. physician, nurses, etc.) to help make decisions for a safe and smooth transitions back to in-house use. Meetings have been held with the Discipleship Committee, with plans for a gradual phase-in approach, beginning with Bible Study (adult Bible Study teachers will meet soon to discuss and finalize a decision), hopefully returning to in-house Study mid-June. No decision was made about the return of children Bible Study nor Sunday School for all. We will cancel Vacation Bible School this year. In the coming weeks, we will consider a plan for the return to in-house worship with social distance, and other activities; in the meantime, we will maintain virtual worship. Thanks for your patience and prayer as we explore all options.

Psalm 91:1, 2 states “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: My God; in him will I trust.”
Thusly, you are strongly urged to put your confidence in our God and know He is a very present help in trouble.
- Practice good hand-washing techniques.
- Cover your mouth when you cough/sneeze.
- Stay home if you’re feeling sick.
- Reframe from hugging and shaking hands; waving, shoulder bump and the “I see you sign” are more appropriate ways of greeting at this time.
- Persons who are eighty-plus years of age with chronic health conditions are asked to stay home.
