WORSHIP - Due to COVID-19 we will continue to post worship videos of our Sunday services on YouTube and Facebook for those unable to attend in-person services. Please note we are observing Holy Communion the 1st and 3rd Sundays. We are using pre-packaged juice and wafer provided in the Narthex before worship, The 2nd and 5th Sundays will be a Service of Word & Prayer and the 4th Sunday will be Affirmation of Baptism.
JUNE BIBLE STUDY - New in-person Bible study begins Wednesday at 10:30 am. We will meet in the fellowship hall. The topic will be St. Paul's letter to the Philippians. In this epistle Paul encourages us to find joy in the midst of trouble and to hold fast to faith in Christ.
WORSHIP - Beginning today, May 23rd, mask wearing will no longer be required for worship - masks may be worn on a voluntary basis, at the discretion of the individual. This change reflects new guidance from CDC and the state of NC regarding masks, which they have deemed no longer necessary for vaccinated individuals. Both federal and state guidance still recommends the wearing of masks for unvaccinated individuals.
