Live streaming links: For 10 AM Sunday Services
We will have our regular Sunday 10 AM On-line service as usual on Sept 6. We are going to have communion this Sunday. The Bishop has given us permission to do online communion. If you would like to have communion during worship, you will need to have bread or crackers, and grape juice ready for worship. It does not need to be in any special dish. A regular glass and plate are fine.
Due to COVID concerns the Church Council voted unanimously not to have the Fall Yard Sale. The rational included that we cannot guarantee the cleanliness of donated articles and we cannot maintain the social distancing requirements while sorting, pricing, organizing or displaying the donations.
*No Sunday School on September 6th.

CHRISTMAS TREE LOT
We are excited to be able to continue our tradition of distributing quality Christmas trees to our community!!! We have 750 Caneen, Balsam and Frazier fir Christmas trees coming on Saturday, November 21, BEFORE Thanksgiving. The lot will be set up for social distancing and safe donation practices will be in place. This will especially be a season of needing to pull together, to work hard. Having said that, it is a continuation of our congregation’s commitment to bringing the true Christmas Spirit into the homes of all in our community.
