A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR SAM
In light of church members of all ages testing positive for COVID-19 in the recent past, I would appreciate your kind cooperation
(1) by staying at home if you are not feeling well or having symptoms of Coronavirus;
(2) by communicating with the church office right away if you have tested positive after attending worship, a committee meeting, and other programs in the church building the previous week or 3-4 days before.
This will surely help our church to take precautions due to exposure. Thank you for your understanding and help.
2021 Angel Tree
We are pleased to announce that the 2021 Angel Tree will be able to proceed this year as we have in the past. We will again have our tree set up in the Narthex on November 21, decorated with paper angels that bear the names and gift wishes of children whose parents are incarcerated.
