Church Family Update…
What we are trying to do this morning… We are trying to be cautious in reopening our worship gatherings during this time of Covid-19. We will continue asking members to consider wearing a mask as they enter and leave the building (when social distancing is not possible) and then if they wish, they may remove them once they find a place to sit for our worship gathering. We ask people to space themselves out in the open church pews to provide some social distancing between family units. We will continue to use the sealed communion items, provide hand sanitizing areas, and continue to NOT use the coffee bar or water fountains for a little while longer (but for the thirsty, small water bottles will be available). Next Sunday, we will enter the fourth and final stage for reopening, when we will further relax our guidelines. We are so thankful for your cooperation.
This morning will honor our high graduates for 2020… Each one has a table set up in the upper lobby where you may place cards, notes of encouragement, and gifts for each one. They are: Kayne Brooks, Kayla Mueller, Nathan Taylor, and Savannah Moffett. May God grant them wisdom and love as they enter a new chapter of their lives.
Baby Bottle Boomerang is coming to their June 21st deadline… Normally we speak a lot about the Open Arms ministry that helps mothers NOT to have an abortion, but to give birth to a child that can be adopted into a loving family. Unfortunately, many pregnant women do not have the resources or medical resources to carry an unwanted child to term. The Open Arms ministry provides pregnant women the resources and support for them to give birth, so the child could be adopted. Most years we talk about this ministry and hand out baby bottles that can be filled with spare change from Mother’s Day to Father’s Dad. But this is NOT “most years.” Father’s Day (June 21st) will continue to be the deadline for their fund drive but they are asking this year that you just write them a check (no matter if it is large or small). You may write a check directly to Open Arms Pregnancy Center and place them in the offering boxes.
