We are resuming worship services in the sancturary again.
Sunday, October 4, 2020, at 9:00am
If you are uncomfortable attending worship service, remember we will still provide a weekly video, posted on Facebook and on YouTube (or on DVD if more convenient for you). These videos will include a sermon recorded live at the worship service and be available later in the day on Sundays, instead of Saturday evenings.
We will continue to use the following guidelines to help reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. We are implementing these guidelines to help reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19 but we all know it is impossible to totally eliminate the risk.
All high-touch services (door handles, tops of pews, altar rail, etc) will be sanitized prior to the service. A greeter will be at the front door to welcome you and ensure that we are socially distanced outside and in the entryway before entering the sanctuary.
Please wear a face mask, if you have one. We will have extras available at the door. The narthex will only be used for going to and from the restroom.
Hand sanitizer and disposable face masks (if you did not bring one) will be on the table as you enter. NO bulletins will be printed as we will primarily be using the large projector screen.
Ushers will help you to a pew with a marker that indicates designated seating. This is to ensure that we are all spaced out in the sanctuary.
Singing and talking loudly has been shown to spread droplets into the air. so we encourage you to keep your face mask on during the service. There will be music and videos for us to listen to during the service.
For communion, ushers will indicate when it is time for your pew to go to the front using the center aisle. At the alter rail there are 6 positions (3 on each side of the sanctuary) marked off with decorative towels. After the bread and wine are placed on the rail, you may move forward for communion. To minimize everyone touching the altar rail surfaces, we will not be kneeling.
At the end of the service, ushers will help us all to be socially distanced as we exit the church. Fellowship will be outside in front of the church.
Pumpkin Patch 2020 News!
It is with the deepest regret we have decided to cancel the traditional Pumpkin Patch this year. Unloading the pumpkin truck involves a lot of folks working side-by-side and we could not find a way to do this and comply with social distancing. In addition, many of our shift workers are in the high-risk groups, so for the safety of our volunteers and guests, we made the tough dicision to cancel.
We will have the barn and the popular "Growing like a Pumpkin" sign up for photo from October 17th - 31st. We hope folks will be able to stip by and get thier traditional fall photos.
Thank you for all your past help and support. We look forward to seeing you all back at the 2021 Pumpkin Patch!
Worship Video - October 11, 2020 Today Paul says something that might sound unreasonable, or even ridiculous: “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, ‘’Rejoice!’” He has experienced even tougher times than we have, as he is writing from a Roman prison. Nevertheless, he says “Rejoice!”
Worship – Sunday, October 4, 2020 https://youtu.be/rtaGWcdN698 Today we will focus on Paul, writing from jail to the church in Philippi. He remembers his many merits and accomplishments but drops all of them as if they amounted to nothing but a pile of rubbish. He drives forward, with his eyes on the prize of knowing Christ and Christ’s resurrection life, even though serving Christ has led to his imprisonment.
The following gatherings are still suspended until further notice:

Worship - September 20, 2020
Thank you for joining this online worship service for Sunday, September 20, 2020. Today Jesus tells a story about a landowner and workers in his vineyard to illustrate God’s generosity. Out of God’s abundance, God graciously supplies enough for all. Our bowls always have enough.
