Home Worship – Sunday September 13, 2020

On Sunday September 13 we start a new worship series looking at the story of Joseph from the book of Genesis. The Big God Theme for the day will be introduced in the Family Worship video, and then be expanded upon in the adult message in the live service. This week the theme is “God Protects.”

Our Home Worship service will go live on YouTube at 10:30am. If you aren’t able to join us live, a recording will be available Sunday afternoon. The words to the songs in the service will be on the screen, or you can find a copy attached. The service continues to be available by telephone for those without internet access.

    • Sunday Worship:  Worship on September 20 & 27 will be by YouTube Livestream. Online worship will continue along side in-person services after October 4. Initially this will be a recorded service that will be posted on Sunday afternoons.
    • Survey for In-Person Worship: Sunday October 4th as our target date for a return to in person services. A letter was sent to the congregation this past week by email and paper mail containing the full details of our reopening plans and some questions for feedback. The elders are in the process of making follow up phone calls to every household. If for some reason you haven’t received a call by this coming Thursday (September 17) please contact Nancy Serafini who is the leading up the Reopening Taskforce – nancydingwall791@gmail.com. Your responses to this letter and telephone survey will help us finalize our plans for October.

Grace and Peace,
