Announcements for Jan. 31

Services by Zoom – The Session decided this past week to start holding our Sunday services live, by Zoom, at 10:30 a.m., beginning this Sunday.  To begin with, the service format will be the same as it has been for the past couple of months, but we plan to add music soon.  This way, we will be able to see each other, and have more of a sense of coming together for worship.  Also, John will continue to record a service and upload it to YouTube for the next couple of weeks at least, in case there are some who prefer that format.
