To the Congregation:

At its meeting held on April 4, 2022, Session voted unanimously to make the wearing of masks optional throughout the building, including the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings. This decision is effective immediately. For those who may continue to have concerns, or who have underlying health issues and wish to continue the wearing of masks, we completely understand and support your decision.

For the Churchtime Sunday School participants, the same options are available. Decisions can be made on a day-to-day and a case-by-case basis.

Additionally, the church buildings are now open for in-person use. All regular activities such as meetings, gatherings, use of the Gym and Kitchen are available and we encourage everyone to come home.

Planning is underway for active summer programming as well. The Christian Education Committee is planning for Vacation Bible School in July and the Church Picnic in late spring; and with the success of the clean-up event held on Saturday the 2nd, the Community Outreach Committee is exploring options for this fall.

Throughout these past two years we have gone through a lot as a congregation and as individuals and we thank God for the support from your prayers, your attendance, and your financial gifts. As we now enter this new phase, we look ahead to Palm Sunday and Easter where together as a congregation we rejoice in the message of resurrection through the life and witness of Jesus Christ.

Clerk of Session
