Worship Info for 4/3/2022

Sunday Worship 4/3/2022
Holy Communion/Annual Campaign Consecration Sunday

This Sunday we continue our series called “Good Enough, talking about how “We Are Fragile.” We will also receive Holy Communion and will consecrate our Annual Commitment Campaign Cards.

If you are worshiping from home tomorrow, please be sure to have your communion elements (bread or crackers, juice or water) handy.

COVID Update
COVID-19 cases are inching up with the new Omicron BA.2 variant. Our 7-day average is under 50, so we will continue offering in-person worship with masks optional during all services. Those who would like to return to in-person worship may do so as you are comfortable. Hint: our 8am and 11am services are the least attended, so if you’re concerned about being in a crowded room, come at 8am (Classic with Communion) or at 11am (Praise Worship Service). We are continuing to follow CDC guidance related to wearing masks while indoors (vaccinated and boosted – masks optional; not vaccinated: please wear a mask for your protection and the protection of others). High quality masks (N95/KN95/KF94) preferred.

Our online services are at 9:30am (Traditional) and 11:00 am (Praise). Please see the link below to tune in!

Here are the bulletins for tomorrow morning’s services:

Our Building Committee has been meeting since January of this year and will be meeting with potential architects in early April. We will begin working with the architectural firm chosen by the committee to revisit, review, and revamp the Master Plan for our church property. After that, we will begin work on the design of our first permanent building.
