Our CELEBRATION OF 60 on January 2 has been revised.  The BREAKFAST IS CANCELLED due to the high number of Covid cases. However, we will still do the presentation to Ed Kappeler for his 60 years of service to Benediction as organist and choir director during worship. Everyone will also be able to leave with a piece of cake and donuts. Our plan was to celebrate Ed’s 60 years of service and Pastor Hougard’s 60th birthday. There are also no Bible Classes or Sunday School this Sunday.

Seating – There are no longer any restrictions on where worshippers can sit. (Accommodations can be made for those who require more distancing.)

Masks and hand sanitizer will continue to be available, but masks are no longer required.

Hymnals are in the pews again. The entire service, except for the hymns will be printed. (Large Print copies, which include the hymns are available.)

Attendance is taken as you enter. Friendship books are no longer passed through the pews.

Communion distribution is at the altar. However, until further notice it will continue to be only the individual cups.

Please be respectful of the comfort level of other people if you choose to shake hands, hug, and visit. The pastor will be glad to shake hands, but only if you initiate it. Even though people have different opinions on masking and such, please be considerate and understanding of each other.
