WELCOME BACK TO CHURCH OR
… GET YOUR BUNS TO CHURCH!
Pentecost Sunday is May 23rd, and it is an important day in church history, because we celebrate the birthday of Christianity. We want you to get up and get ready and come to the church. We will still have worship online. We will take all safety precautions! Masks will be worn, health information collected and social distance seating. To help remind you to come to church, we are calling all of you to get your buns to church! We will be collecting hot dog buns for our upcoming church picnics and for the food pantry.
BIBLE SUNDAY ON PENTECOST SUNDAY - MAY 23 RD We are looking for students in the third grade and above who have not received a Bible from the church. It is a long tradition to give young people a Bible as part of a worship service. Pastor Meg underlines a verse for each student to find. When the student locates the verse, they bring it to Pastor Meg and she gives them a prize. Please contact the church office if you have a child or grandchild who you would like to receive a bible. We will present them on Sunday, May 23rd .
Beginning May 30th following worship, you are invited to stay for a time of fellowship outside. Due to covid precautions, we want to begin slowly and carefully, which means we will be outside near the entrance. We will have lemonade and bottled water and maybe a cookie or two. We will have a few lawn chairs and a small canopy tent for shelter. You are welcome to bring your own lawn chair. We have certainly missed fellowshipping together, and outdoors in the spring and summer sounds like a safe way to begin. We all appreciate finding new ways to be a careful community! If you would be willing to help set up and put away, please contact the church office. Many hands make light work!
