A CHALLENGING YEAR!
The past few months have been nothing short of challenging for all of us as we continue to navigate all that 2020 has held "so far".
After 15 weeks of services in the parking lot, we were thrilled to get back in the church the first Sunday in July where new carpeting had been laid and "spaced-out seats".
I believe the fellowship of the believers is needed now, more than ever before, and while so many have returned for "in-person" worship, some have chosen to remain at home.
We are averaging approximately 70-80% in attendance compared to attendance B.C. (Before Covid).
If you watch at home, once again, I would encourage you to do your best to focus on the service as much as possible. Just the other day I was speaking with someone who attends another church, and they remarked how difficult it is to worship at home without distraction.
Thankfully, we were broadcasting long before the pandemic so other than a few minor "glitches" here and there, things have seemed to go smoothly.
Most of you know that we have resumed our Wednesday evening Bible Study, Royal Rangers, MPact Girls Clubs, and Pulse Youth. In November, we are planning on resuming van runs to pick up kids.
Since Children's Church is now on Sunday mornings for the FULL service time, we suspended Sunday School for all ages. This has provided more spacing on Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary, as the seats that would usually be occupied by kids on Sunday mornings are available for adults.
We are now offering the Adult Sunday School Curriculum on Wednesday evenings as Gene Shultz and Pastor Lawrence alternate teaching weeks. Plenty of spacing here on Wednesday nights so join us, especially if Sundays have been difficult to attend.
