Covid Update: Our church board has reviewed the covid situation. For the present, no changes will be made in our protocol. We will continue to take temperatures. We will continue to spray disinfectant in the sanctuary and fellowship hall prior to services. The AV lights will continue to be used. Communion is set up wearing plastic gloves. Masks are still recommended. Social distancing is still to be practiced. We are committed to doing all we can to keep everyone safe.
The good news is that all but four members in attendance Sunday have been vaccinated. If you have not been vaccinated social distancing is very important. The other good news is that no one has gotten covid from attending church. While covid is still with us and precautions are necessary the situation is improving. I know we are all looking forward to a return to normalcy.
Bible study will continue on Wednesday at 3:30. Our focus this week is on the trial and death of Jesus. This week we will have choir rehearsal following Bible study (around 4:30). The choir plans to sing on Easter.
On Sunday I will be preaching on the Palm Sunday theme. We will explore the proper way to welcome Jesus.
On Maundy-Thursday, April 1, we will observe a candlelight communion service.
On Good Friday we will observe our annual 24-hour prayer vigil. There are still slots open if you haven’t signed up yet.
On Easter Sunday I will be preaching a sermon I wasn’t able to preach last Easter because of covid cancelation. The theme will be the resurrection of Jesus, reflecting on Paul’s text in 1 Corinthians 15, “What if it Never Happened?”
From March last year to March this year has been difficult. I think I can see light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you all for your cooperation and support during what has been a very difficult year.
Blessings on all!
