  • Benevolent Fund — is currently not strongly funded. If you can help with special giving, now is a great time. Or If you’re privy to anyone in our congregation struggling in a financial/physical way, please share that with any Deacon or Deaconess.  
  • Coronavirus — as our country and community weathers this situation, please be courteous of others.  There are a few things we can do to help everyone by limiting the potential spread of this virus.  After the service please consider not shaking the pastor’s (or speaker’s) hand, but rather just greet him and each other without that traditional greeting.  Wash your hands regularly.  Use hand sanitizer regularly.  If your kids are sick, please consider keeping them home.  If you think you have been exposed to something, self-quarantine.  If you think you are personally in a high risk category, self-quarantine.  We should not be in fear, but rather live respectfully with each other.
