Service Time Change:
We launched 2-service trial in September to give plenty of space for in-person worship. We anticipated an increased attendance with the relaunch of Children’s Ministries. However, our average combined attendance is 132 – well under the 180 allowed in our sanctuary (with spacing). We also have heard about your desire for fellowship. We felt that the 2 services divided the fellowship of those attending. We have also discovered that many of you appreciate an earlier start time; therefore, the Elders have decided to return to one service beginning on Sunday, November 15th at 10:00 am for the foreseeable future. We will monitor attendance and spacing as we go forward. Thank-you to all who helped us try the 2-service model. If you have any thoughts or comments, please contact one of the Elders.
Parent-Supervised Nursery Relaunch:
We are excited that as of Sunday November 15th, we will be re-opening our Nursery for parental use! Though we are not yet staffing this area with volunteers, we will have the room available during the service with plans to have the service playing on the large TV by the couches. This is a space for any parents with younger children (ages 0 – 2 years) that wish to use it. There will be some packed gold-fish snacks you are welcome to give to your children, couches to visit on, and toys for the kids to play with. If parents prefer they are also welcome to bring their own toys or snacks for their children’s use. We hope this space will be a blessing and we look forward to having it available once again.

New Small Groups:
We are pleased to announce we have 9 new Small Group opportunities beginning the week of November 15th which will meet until Christmas. We urge you to join one of these groups for fellowship and connection, especially during this time. The groups that do not yet have a day of the week or time set will make their decision with group input. Please CLICK HERE to express your interest in up to 2-3 of these groups.
