JOIN US FOR WORSHIP
We invite you to join us for Sunday morning Worship either in person here at the church or on FB Live, at 10:30 am.  Once again, our Sunday school for all ages is now available at 9:15 am each Sunday morning.
The Elders have had some questions concerning a “policy” on coronavirus precautions. There are two issues the Elders would like to address: (1) facemasks; and, (2) physical (“social”) distancing. As far as facemasks go, we will not engage in a debate as a church on the effectiveness of facemasks. As a result, we have decided that it is best to leave that to your discernment. The elders would like you to know that facemasks are welcome, but not required on our campus. Our concern is not the mask itself so much as the division that these protocols are fostering. In that vein, be clear in your own conscience, but be respectful of the consciences of others. Also, we have made the decision to keep the physical distance between the pews for the present time. Upon evaluation of the last few Lord’s Days, it is clear that we are beginning to get tight, but there is still room to sit at a six-foot distance from non-family members in our sanctuary. If you see the lower level filling, please avail yourself of the balcony so that there will room on the main floor for those who cannot climb the stairs.

AWANA CLUB
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that for the present time, we will not be moving forward with an Awana year. With the decrease in people who would be willing to work in the program, Justin Snyder was made aware of a program through which Awana is delivered by video conferencing this year. The software and learning curve is going be a little bit of a difficulty, so for now, we will postpone the Awana year until we can discharge that ministry with excellence. Also along those lines, Justin has approached the elders with his desire to find a replacement in our church to be the Awana Commander. Let me say a couple of things there. First, it is with nothing in our hearts but gratitude that we even think about Justin’s faithfulness to these Awana students for the past ten years! So, from the elders and our congregation, our praise to God and our thanksgiving to Justin for his love for the eternal souls of these kids. Also, please know that he still desires to be involved in the Awana ministry, just not as Commander. His living-wage job along with his duties as an elder in our church simply won’t allow him to lead that ministry any longer. Second, in honor of his request, we are coming to you seeking a man with (1) a heart to reach kids with the gospel, and (2) good organizational skills, to be our new Awana Commander. If you would like to be considered for this position, please see one of the elders. We look forward to how God will continue to use this vital ministry in our community.
 
THANKSGIVING 2020
Because it is still recommended that we limit social gatherings and continue to practice social distancing, we will NOT be having the traditional Thanksgiving Fellowship Dinner in November this year.
“You’re thought of at Thanksgiving with a simple heartfelt prayer,
for God alone in His great love to keep you in His care.”
Have a blessed day with your family from the Fellowship and Caring Ministry Team
 
SUNDAY EVENING PRAYER & BIBLE HOUR
Please join us at 5 p.m. each Sunday as we pray, praising God for who He is and thanking Him for all He has done.  Immediately following the prayer meeting Sunday evenings, we will gather around the Word of God for a time of study in Paul’s letter to Titus.
 
YOUTH GROUP
The Youth meet at the church on Sunday nights at 6:30pm. Students grades 7-12 are welcome and encouraged to attend! Please invite a friend to join you.
 
WEDNESDAY FACEBOOK LIVE BIBLE STUDY
Pastor Jonathan is teaching The Ten Commandments on Facebook Live each Wednesday evening, at 6:30 pm. Can’t be there live? The studies are archived on our Facebook page, so you can go back anytime to watch at your convenience.
 
MEN’S FELLOWSHIP
Our men’s fellowship meets every Thursday morning at 6:30 am in the fellowship hall. All men are invited to join us for a time of devotions and prayer. 
 
OFFERING

We are dependent on your financial support. You may still send your offering by mail, drop it in the offering
boxes, or give through the church website. A link is provided for you on our Home page for giving online. Giving is an expression of our worship!

 
OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE THE LORD AND THE CHURCH:
Our volunteer Church Cleaning Crew (CCC) is in immediate need of some assistance and maybe you can help. We could really use two or more people to do the dusting in the sanctuary each week. This is fairly light duty and won’t take long if two or three “dust busters” work together. If you are willing to help with this task, please call Doug Herman and join the CCC today.
