Our Reopening Taskforce met on November 16. We adjusted some of our guidelines in regards to our current policies related to COVID-19. We decided to remove the tape on the pews. Everyone entering the sanctuary is encouraged to continue to social distance. We have placed signs leading into the sanctuary. The Taskforce is encouraging everyone to wear masks. Our signs now read masks are requested. Use of the social hall and kitchen is only for small parties as long as they follow church policy.

Starting Sunday, November 7, Pastor Andrew will start a sermon series focused on giving. We will look at challenging passages of scripture where Jesus speaks to money and our material stuff and our relationship with both. The image for the sermon series of planting seeds in faith. In the parable of the sower, what is sown in faith, and on receptive soil can, can yield a hundredfold back. How is God calling us to use our money and possessions to sow in faith and grow closer to God?
