We extend our prayers and sympathy to the family of Florence Highsmith, who died December 23, 2020.  The obituary for Florence can be found at cumbyfuneral.com.

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

We have two options for worship on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. You may join us online on Facebook Live and WGOS AM 1070 or in person in the sanctuary. Every effort has been made to provide a safe environment for our in-person worship service. It also is essential for us to continue to adhere to our safety practices.

What to Expect at Indoor Worship

  • Access to the Sanctuary is through the Randolph Street doors only.  The designated entrance for those needing the elevator will be the door under the walkway.
  • You’ll be greeted upon entering the church and asked a few questions.
  • Face masks will be required for everyone.
  • Some pews will be blocked to maintain social distancing; an usher will help direct you.
  • Out of respect for others, please refrain from shaking hands or hugging.
  • Offering plates will be available at the entrance and exit of the sanctuary.
  • When services end, attendees will be dismissed by section to avoid hallway congestion.
  • No nursery staff will be present, but the nursery space will be available.
  • Sunday school will not be offered at this time.

ARTS ALIVE OPEN HOUSE, JANUARY 3

CANCELLED: FAT TUESDAY PANCAKE DAY (Feb. 2021)

Once again COVID-19 has forced a decision, and that is to cancel our Fat Tuesday Pancake Day this coming February 16, 2021. It is just not safe enough to have such a large gathering. Supplies must be ordered and arrangements made in order to put on this day long event and it is just not feasible to do so at present. We are disappointed not to be able to do this fundraising mission, but look forward to next year when we will resume this annual event.
