Congratulations to Pastor Lou on 10 years of ordained ministry (July 10, 2010).  Time flies when you're having fun ...

Returning to In-Person Services
What to do before attending, what to expect when you arrive --

- Take your temperature at home -- if it is over 100.4, please to not attend the service.
- Please bring a face mask if you have one;  there are some available at the church if you do not have one, or forget yours.  Masks are to be worn while inside the building by all over age 5 unless a health condition prevents you from wearing one (ie breathing difficulties, physical difficulty removing if needed).
- Use the parking lot doors.  Please be seated in family groups/households, leaving 3 empty chairs between groups.
- Please try to maintain a 6 ft distance in the fellowship hall other than for a very brief time period (passing, etc.)
- Please use the waste baskets for papers and tissues; take advantage of the sanitizer, wipes, soap and water which are available ...

>>Singing During the Service

Because singing indoors is possibly a higher risk activity for viral spreading, if you are not able to wear a mask we ask that you do not sing along with the liturgy or hymns.  This is the unfortunate trade-off we are making for the safety of our more vulnerable members, to help them and their families feel more comfortable with them attending our Sunday service.

Weekly Worship and Communion Schedule
Holy Communion will be offered weekly at each Sunday service as we work our way back into more regular attendance by all members who are able.  Service of the Word will continue to be live-broadcast for those who choose not to attend in-person quite yet, with the broadcast ending prior to the start of the Service of the Sacrament.

Farewell -- Sadly, we say farewell to Ron and Nancy Hanson as they have sold their ML home and are moving to a new one in Wenatchee to be closer to son Kevin's growing family.  We hope they will drop in on us every now and then to say HI, especially after the virus restrictions are lifted ...
