Church is Opening for In-Person Worship!
Date:  April 11, 2021 at 9:30am

On March 17, 2021, our church session met and voted unanimously to approve the reopening of our sanctuary for in-person worship services starting on April 11, 2021.  However, we are mindful of recommended Covid safety procedures and we will proceed with caution in the early months.

 

You will now have two choices for worshiping:

 

1.  Virtual online services will still be provided until we are fully back to normal. 

2.  In-Person Worship at 9:30am in Sanctuary:

     a.  Masks:   Will be required that cover the nose and mouth for all people age 5 and up, no exceptions.  Masks are also required for those who have been vaccinated.

     b.  Social Distancing:  Family groups are asked to sit 6 feet apart from others.

     c.  Socializing:   No indoor coffee fellowship will be held. Socializing wil be limited to outdoor spaces.

We will not yet have Greeters and you may notice modifications for communion, offerings, and passing God's peace.   We will all do the best we can to worship together safely, and we will make adjustments as needed.

 

We are on our way back to the friendly services we have always enjoyed!

 

Thank you for you cooperation and hope to see you soon.

Call to Action:   Pura Vida Ministry Update

 Saludos a todos!  Greetings to all!

 

hope that this email finds you and yours in good health and looking forward to better days as Covid-19 vaccines get distributed and Spring continues to warm things up. 

 

It’s been a while since my last update.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to schedule our Guatemala Service Learning Trip this May, as we’d hoped.  Here is an update from Pura Vida’s Executive Director, Mark Ely:

In an effort to continue our mission work in Guatemala, as well as provide much-needed employment for our Guatemalan construction crews, we currently have several Virtual Work Trips scheduled for this year.  The best part is – anyone can participate! 

Check it out at:  

Here is a cool time-lapse video from our current Virtual Trip, building a home for Valentina.  For those of you who have not met Valentina, she is the director of the Nutrition Center in Lemoa, Guatemala, where many of our students and their families live.   

 

With vaccines rolling out, we hope to be able to send work teams down in early 2022.  Until then, think about joining us for a Virtual Work Trip.  You will receive updates, photos and videos throughout the construction project.  The next best thing to being there, as they say.  

 

Thanks for your continued support!

 

Blessings,
