JOIN US FOR COFFEE FELLOWSHIP
We welcome everyone for Coffee Fellowship today, and every Sunday, in the Fellowship Hall following services. Today’s Fellowship is offered by Avra and Georgia Skrekas in memory of beloved husband and father George and daughter and sister Deborah. May their memory be eternal. If you have children in the Sunday School, please wait for them in Coffee Fellowship. They will be dismissed when their class is completed.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AT THE WELCOME BACK COOKOUT
What a wonderful day we had last Sunday at the Welcome Back Cookout. Over 65 people stayed for the Cookout, some ate inside and some outside, but all enjoyed the afternoon together. We thank all who donated food for the event and offered their time grilling, serving, setting up and cleaning up. We also thank the Sunday School staff for providing crafts for our children.
SUNDAY SCHOOL RESUMES
We continue with our in-person Sunday School classes begin today. The teachers and staff are excited to welcome our students back into the classroom to help them explore and grow in the faith. If you were unable to participate last Sunday, we welcome your children this, and every Sunday. Masks will be required in the classroom by staff and students. Please make sure to verify your children’s registration information.
CHOIR NEEDS YOU
Please join us, no experience necessary. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our director, Stephanie Gulezian, at firstname.lastname@example.org, our organist, Marc Gulezian, at email@example.com or come up to the loft and follow along with us.
Recently new WiFi has been installed in our facility. Additionally, we have upgraded our internet to help accommodate increased use. We thank Derik and Eli Piper for installing the hardware. Log in information is posted throughout the facility.
LOWER PARKING LOT
Recently, the parish entered into an agreement with a management company to lease the lower parking lot for day parking. The parish is able to use the lot as needed for special events. Feel free to park in the lower lot on Sundays for services without charge. We will open the gates at the top of the hill on Sundays.
COVID PROTOCOLS FOR CHURCH CONTINUE
Especially now with the uptick in COVID cases, as we continue to gather for worship we ask that you follow the CDC guidelines. Those who are vaccinated, masks are optional. Those who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue mask usage to help protect themselves and others, especially our children. Children 2 years and older are strongly encouraged to wear masks. You are welcome to seat yourself as you enter the church. As you move around the facility, please keep social distancing in mind.
We are excited to welcome you back for worship as you feel comfortable. We are also excited to begin reinstalling many of our ministries and events. Please offer your assistance as we begin the process of ramping up our calendar.
