Dear Families,

Hello! I hope all the kiddos who have gone back to school are off to a great start! I know that many parents have very mixed emotions about kids returning to school since COVID numbers are not what we had anticipated just a couple short months ago. Know that all the parents, kids, and school staff are prayed for daily and please reach out if you need to talk!


This Sunday

Join us for worship in the sanctuary at 10am! All ages are welcome and single use worship bags are provided for children.

Reminder that the nursery is now OPEN! For some nursery updates and information on what we are doing to keep children safe & healthy, CLICK HERE. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know and I am happy to chat!

**CLICK HERE to access a printable sheet of our plans for Chidlren’s Ministry this year. Of course, it is all VERY tentative and will depend on continued monitoring of health and safety conditions in our community as well as guidance from our session approved COVID Task Force. I’m sending it with HOPE that things will improve and we can get back to some of the events we love so much as well as some new ones!
