The Book of James provides us the spark we need for our launch into the fall season. James gives us a chance to reflect on the nature of Christian service and how we can continue our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by engaging with our wider community in acts of service. Getting involved in providing real help to better our neighborhoods and to lift up the individuals and families within them is how we live into our lives as Christians. We invite you to engage with this book of the Bible as we seek to be Doers of the Word.

One of the adaptations we will need to make is how we worship together in the Sanctuary.  We were excited to hear the news from the CDC that for fully vaccinated people normal activities could resume.  However, not all of our members have been able to be vaccinated and in solidarity with them and for their protection, we will continue to follow the mask and physical distance protocols. Please take note of these specific items:
1-We will begin seating worshippers in “family groups” at 10:45. Please wait at your car until you can take a turn on the porch. Please keep 6 feet apart as you wait.
2-The ushers will fill the sanctuary from the front starting with the pews 16’ from the altar rail. They will then alternate center aisle and side aisle in a staggered manner. At the end of the service, we will exit at the direction of the ushers starting in the back.
3-The restrooms on the Fellowship Hall side of the narthex will be available for use.
4-There will be a basket for Crisis Control offerings and one for monetary offerings behind the last pew to the right as you come into the sanctuary.
5-During the service, you may participate in the liturgy softly and may hum along with the music leaders.
6-When Holy Communion is served, Pastor Marilyn will come to you in the pews with the elements
