Weekly Staying Connected While Apart

July 31 - We're going outside this Sunday!

July 31, 2020

Update: We can now have 50 people in church. Please remember everyone 5 years and up are required to wear masks in the building at all times as well as keep 6 feet apart from others outside of your immediate household. These guidelines are especially hard to follow in such a loving church. However, do not want to be negligent in our care of each other - physically or emotionally - so we will follow the guidelines. Reminder that drinks are allowed in the chapel as long as they are in cups/containers that can be closed.

But, THIS Sunday, August 2, as we worship outside masks are only required if 6 feet of distance between households cannot be met. Feel free to bring your own chairs if you like, but we will have chairs available as needed. Bringing water would be great as well.


1) Thank you for the Divisional Youth Department for a fun time at ZOOM Arts SAY Camp!

2) Next week Lorrie Davis will be bringing you the message, as our family will be on our last vacation for the summer from August 3 - 13. Any suggestions on fun things to do in Oregon? Please let us know. There will be no newsletter next week. Thank you all and see you Sunday!
