Please welcome Etta Patten as our custodian. We will miss Julie Gilbertson as she moves to Florida and other adventures.  We are grateful to Etta for joining our staff!

A comprehensive reopening plan for the church has been developed. Here are the guidelines at this time.  

  • Although the church has opened, it is an individual decision which each person must make.  If you have a health issue or other factor, you are encouraged to stay home until you feel comfortable in returning.

  • Services are live-streamed, so those who are not able to attend services, can watch it on-line.

  • Every effort will be made to keep the building sanitized. Hand sanitizer and wipes are available throughout the building.

  • Worshipers will be asked to wear a mask. If a person enters without a mask, the usher will give the person one supplied by the church.

  • Social distancing will be used, so that no worshiper is within six feet of another.

  • Coffee hour has been eliminated until further notice.

  • Ministers will not greet after services.

  • We will not offer communion until August at the earliest.

  • Offering will be dropped in a basket as plates will not be passed.

  • Hymnals and Bibles have been removed from the racks. There will not be congregational singing at this time. Our organist will continue to play for the service. 

As you look at the above, you can see that every effort is being made to provide a safe environment for worship. As time passes,  treatment/vaccines will become available and we can start the process of returning to normalcy. For now, though, we will stay the course.


It would be great to see you with your mask on at services!
