FACEMASKING | SOCIAL DISTANCING
While everyone has a choice not to mask, face-masking is "strongly encouraged" while inside the buildings on church property. While taking communion we recommend staying 6 feet apart with sensitivity to those more susceptible to health issues than others (see 1 Corinthians 8:9).
If you'd like to contribute to fellowship hour - either with food or muscle in setting up the table and tent - contact Judy E. Find her contact numbers in the church directory here.
LAY READERS MEETING
Next week after the 10:00 AM Service will be a meeting for lay readers and those interested in reading Scripture from the podium on Sunday mornings. Lat readers are responsible for reading the OT, Psalm, and NT Lessons, as well as leading the church through the Prayers of the People. Grab your coffee and circle around back to the church after 15 minutes or so. More information? Contact Linda McGrail in the Church Directory here.

There is also a weekend retreat centered around the Person of the Holy Spirit. This Tuesday at 6:15 PM in the Grange Hall.
