A Message from Our Pastor
June 18, 2020
This is Pastor Scott I pray everyone is having a good day. I am sending out this update to let you know schedule changes as we open the church up a little more beginning in July and some changes in the missions conference schedule as well.
It has been good to be back in church these past four weeks and also we have had the addition of the new AV equipment for the online streaming and pray that both have been a blessing to each of you. Unless we have any new announcements from the powers that be restricting us then in July we will continue with services as we have and are going to open up Sunday School. Right now the youth have been having Sunday School classes at 9 at the church and online as well. College and career and Matt Coonley's class have been meeting on Sunday evenings after the service. Amanda Dorsey has begun teaching the children that are here on Sunday evening after church while Matt's class has been meeting. We are still waiting to open up Sunday School completely but at present if you would like to come and join Matt's class you are more than welcome; they meet outside around the fire pit and enjoy a good time of learning and fellowship. Also the choir will be resuming the first Sunday in July. As I said it has been good to see everyone and I look forward to seeing more of you when it becomes safer to be in the service. If you watch online you may notice the sanctuary looks almost back to normal. We are not yet having fellowship time and not passing the offering plate. Some are in the sanctuary with masks on and we still have the fellowship hall set up where social distancing can be accomplished very easily. I completely understand your caution if you have not joined us yet in the services but know you are missed and I look forward to seeing you when you are comfortable to come. Also remember this Sunday being Father's Day we will not have evening services.
We have had to change the way we are going to do missions conference this year. Instead of the four day conference we will have the conference on July 11-12. We will have services on Saturday evening beginning at 6 and two of our missionaries will speak on Saturday evening and then the Sunday Services will be as normal and will have a missionary speaker each service. We will have a meal following the Sunday morning service to fellowship with the missionaries and to get to know them better. If you can we ask that you to help with some soft drinks or financial donation to help with the missions conference. In this crazy year the greatest way you can help with the missions conference is to be there. I know it would be a great encouragement to our missionaries as they have had many meetings cancelled and are excited to be with us.
Thank you for reading to the end I love you guys and look forward to seeing you this Father's day.
