Announcements May 24 – 30

Regular Sunday services and most congregational activities continue to be suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will resume our regular activities as soon as the government determines that it is safe to do so. John is producing an abbreviated service video every Sunday, approximately 30 minutes in length.  Each Sunday morning, he sends out, by e-mail, the link that you need in order to access the video on YouTube, normally between 10:15 and 10:30.  Attached to that e-mail is a full script of the service, which can be printed for any relative or friend who doesn’t have access to the internet.  You can access the current Sunday’s service also through this website

Sunday – Charlie Clifford is preaching the sermon in Sunday’s service.  We had decided last fall to give our lay preachers opportunities to preach more often; not just when John is away, but also on Sundays when he is here.  Charlie was therefore scheduled to preach on the 24th of May, and he and John have decided to stick with that date, even though our normal worship format is on hold due to the pandemic.  We thank Charlie for his major contribution to today’s service!

The Bible study group will meet by Zoom on Tuesday evening at 7:00.

The Session will meet by Zoom on Thursday evening at 7:00

Newsletter – The May issue of the Newsletter has been published and sent out.  Those who don’t have e-mail will receive their copies in the mail this time; the elders don’t need to worry about delivering them.  Many thanks again to Lisa Sneesby for putting the Newsletter together, to Gwen Henwood for printing the hard copies, and to Mardine Garnham for preparing the envelopes for mailing!

Newsletter – Today is the deadline for submissions for the June issue of the Newsletter.  Please send your items to Lisa Sneesby (bsneesby@mymts.net).  Photos of congregational events are welcome.  We plan to have the newsletter ready for distribution in time for next Sunday, the 24th.

Office Hours – John is continuing to observe regular office hours at the church (9:00-12:00 and 1:00-5:00, Tuesday to Saturday), since, most of the time, he’s the only person in the building, anyway.  He keeps the door locked most of the time, so if you need to get in and don’t have the code for the lock, just ring the doorbell at the office entrance.  Since Monday the 18th is a holiday, he won’t be in the church office this week until Wednesday.  However, if a pastoral need should arise, please call him at home.
