Plenty of Room in the Sanctuary

Last Sunday, after the Worship Service, those present helped me rearrange the designated seats in the sanctuary. We now have room for thirty households in each worship service. Assuming an average of three people in each household, that’s room for roughly ninety people in each service. If the Saturday and Sunday services both get filled up, we’ll simply add another service. There’s plenty of room for you to come back whenever it feels right.

Corrected: Church Office Closed Next Week

Pam Simpson is taking a week off next week (March 22-26 15-19, 2021). For that reason, office hours will range from intermittent to nonexistent. You have my cell phone number (it’s in the church contacts directory and on the back of the bulletin); please call if you need into the office or if you have any other questions or concerns.

Correction: Pam noticed that I had the dates wrong. If you want an example of what’s going to go off the rails while she’s gone, that’s a great example.

Yes, We’re Open

Just to be clear, the two worship services this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, both at 10:30 a.m.) are open to the congregation. We’ve been open to the public for worship every Saturday and Sunday since October (I think). You’ll need to wear a mask and social distance, but we would welcome your presence.

Ash Wednesday Services Tomorrow

We’ll have three options for observing Ash Wednesday tomorrow (February 17, 2021): an in-person service at 10:30 in the sanctuary that will be available on Facebook, Vimeo, and our website later in on the day (hopefully by 5:00 p.m.). We’ll also incorporate the Ash Wednesday liturgy into our 6:00 p.m. Zoom communion service. If you participate online from home, I would encourage you to gather some soil, or dirt, or dust if you can.
