Welcome Home, It will be nice to be together this Sunday

Dear Loved Ones,


I am so excited to be able to meet with you all face to face this Sunday. 

I just want to give you some info to make our Sunday morning as smooth as possible.  Here are some things that will help this to be a positive experience for you and your family.


The Elders have been spending much prayer time seeking God about this and we are in agreement this is our best possible course.


We are asking everyone to please wear masks. I understand they are uncomfortable, and there are many views regarding their efficacy. Please understand, you are not wearing the masks for your protection. You are wearing them for the protection of others who may be immuno-compromised. This is a time to serve others and to show consideration for them.  If you have a different viewpoint, I understand that, but want you to know we have prayerfully considered this, and it is our belief that this will be the most prudent course to follow.


We will have 2 services, one at 8:30 and one at 10:15.  Our normal times.  We have room for 97 people in the Sanctuary, and we have room for 48 people in the Fellowship Hall at each service. (290 Total) The Fellowship Hall will be reserved for our Seniors over 65 who would like a little more security or those with a compromised immune system.  We are asking for our families with children to please sit together in the Sanctuary. There will be no children’s ministry until the next school year begins. We will then begin Sunday School and mid-week programs. The outdoor playground will be closed for the time being.  Our small groups will begin to meet again at the normal times, the week after Labor Day in September.


Please come a little early to service.  We will be taking each person’s temperature with a touchless scanner, have hand sanitizer available, and we will have masks available if you forgot to bring your own personal one. We also ask that if you have a fever, sore throat or runny nose, please stay home until you are symptom free.


Dear Friends, I understand that no one like these restrictions. We are committed to removing the restrictions as soon as possible. No one misses the hugs and handshake more than I do, but please let’s respect a little space for now and hold back for a time.


Please remember these restrictions are temporary and are designed to keep our church as safe as possible.  I am looking forward to getting back to normal as soon as possible.

Not the “New Normal.”  Normal, normal.


I miss you all dearly, and I am looking forward to seeing you Sunday.


Grace and Peace,

Pastor Ron
