ANOTHER STEP TOWARD NORMAL

The elders have decided that the time is right to move a little more the way things were in the “good ol’ days” before COVID-19. With our new mask policy in place, we believe members will be able to spend more time together on Sunday morning as we reinstitute our morning adult Bible class. The Sunday morning adult Bible class will start up on Sunday, July 4th and for the time being we will have just one class in the auditorium. We still have not found a safe way forward concerning children’s classes, so we are asking that all children remain with their parents in the Sunday adult class.

The lessons we have been studying on Wednesday night we originally planned for the Sunday AM class, therefore on July 4th we will simply switch the last few lessons in that series from Wednesday to Sunday. In other words, the class that was scheduled for Wednesday, July 7th, will instead be taught on Sunday, July 4th, etc.

Beginning Wednesday, July 7th, we will have a brand-new study taught by Joe Winnett. Be watching for details about this new study. Thank you for your patience, co-operation and understanding as we take another step back toward what used to be normal.
