Dear Church Family,
Greetings in the name of the Lord! We are EXCITED to share with you our plans to resume meeting in person, on June 7. During our current study on the book of Acts, a reoccurring theme jumps from the pages as they continued to “meet together”. Although we are grateful for the blessing of the Internet and virtual gatherings like Zoom and YouTube, nothing can replace our time “together.”
As we approach June 7, we do so with great anticipation but also wise caution. As you know, we have spent the last three months fighting this virus and the fight is not over. While we gather to worship, we also want to stay healthy. To this end we will encourage you to take reasonable steps to love our neighbors and protect their health even if you feel fine. We know this virus can take up to two weeks to show symptoms, so we move forward keeping this in mind.
During our times gathering in person, we will continue to offer a live feed for those who are unable to join us, or for those whom it may be unwise to gather at this time. During all of our gatherings we will be wise with our interaction and practice certain measures of social distancing. But it sure will be great to be back together again! Here are some further guidelines:
Social distance per CDC guidelines (families can sit together but separated by six feet from other families).
Masks are encouraged.
Masks will NOT be provided.
No Nursery or Children’s Ministries.
No Sunday School or ABFs.
It is recommended that people who are medically at risk stay home.
Initially there will be no singing – other multi-media worship will be provided. The act of singing projects the most contagions.
Hand sanitizer will be at tables in foyer and at the Welcome Center. Please use before entering the Worship Center.
Pews will be marked for seating and it will be staggered (e.g. every other row).
Socializing afterward should be in the parking lot or while in your pew.
Offering plates will be at the back of the auditorium on tables for your giving (collection plates will not be passed during the service).
Initially there will be no in-person gatherings other than on-site service.
At this point the plan will be to not gather in person on the 14th to allow for evaluation of the two-week incubation time period, but to continue to offer the online service. If all goes well, we will gather again on the 21st with the social distancing guidelines still in place. As we have learned these last three months, flexibility is a spiritual virtue as we follow the Lord’s leading.
We also are planning to hold our Annual Congregational Meeting for June 8, at 7:30 pm. Again, as we gather in person we will practice social distancing. We have shared digital versions of our annual reports, but if you would like a physical copy, please call and leave a message at the church office and we will mail one to you.
We hope you are as excited as we are to gather again. This time apart makes us all the more appreciative of our church family and the love we share as we gather together. May we never take this blessing for granted again.
Serving you and our Lord together,
Your Elders and Deacons

The early church turned the world upside down! What was it about the early church that enabled them to have such an impact? Are there similar actions on our part which could deepen our impact? In ACTS 2 we are given a glimpse of what ACTIONS enabled this young church to spread a contagious faith.
As a Church, we're so grateful to see God's Kingdom going forward in Guatemala! During our trip in partnership with Paradise Bound Ministries, our group of 38 adults were blessed to build homes, facilitate medical clinics, create meaningful relationships and witness many people invite Jesus Christ to be Lord of their lives!
