Protocols Dropped – The Session has decided to discontinue the remaining pandemic protocols for our Sunday services.  Among other things, this means that we will go back to using hymnbooks and pew Bibles, and gathering the Offering the way we used to do.  Those who wish to continue wearing a mask and/or using hand sanitizer should feel free to do so, however.  Similarly, those who feel uncomfortable shaking hands with others should feel free not to do so.
