Fall Adult Discipleship Offering
A Conversation on Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World by Max Lucado. Starting Wednesday, October 7, in the Everette House, at 2 PM. Join Linda Mizell for an in-person discussion of this popular book. Lucado invites the reader to use Philippians 4:6-7 as a tool to reframe the way we face our fears and win the war on worry. We’ll also address our current concerns and anxieties surrounding Covid-19. This small group will meet (socially distanced) in the Great Room of the Everette House and will welcome up to 10 participants. Books are available from Amazon or in the church office for $12. (Even if you are not able to participate in the Conversation small group, you are welcome to purchase a book to read on your own.) Contact Linda Mizell:
Fall Adult Discipleship Offering
Prayers worthy of Golden Bowls: 5:30 – 6:15 PM.
Starting October 13 in the Fannie B. Gray Parlor
A new Women’s study to deepen your conversations with God using Barbara Markland’s Prayers Worthy of Golden Bowls study. This study requires about 20 minutes of book and Bible reading each week, followed by, ideally, daily prayer and journaling. This is a great group for those new to or shy about group Bible Study. The book contains 14 chapters, but the study may be split into two 7 week sessions, to accommodate other holiday offerings. The chapters are independent of one another so participants who need to may miss a week. This small group can welcome up to 10 participants. Contact: Sonja Brewton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
WHAT'S THE PLAN?
The Church Office will remain closed. Staff will be allowed to work remotely as they feel appropriate for their health and safety.
Building Use Protocol
All people coming on our property must maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet.
A mask must be worn when in close proximity of another.
Groups of 10 or less are allowed to meet in the building.
Any outside gathering on our property (25 maximum) is permitted as long as social distancing is maintained.
All groups using the facility must make a room reservation by contacting Sally at email@example.com.
All groups must register the groups attendance with names and phone numbers. This must be submitted to the office at the completion of the meeting. Attendance forms are available in the folder holder outside the office door. Proper registration will better aid in cooperating with contact tracers in case someone is infected with COVID-19.
High risk individuals, whether staff, members, or program participants, should continue to shelter in place.
The PCUSA defines high-risk individuals as:
People who are over 55
People of any age who have underlying health conditions.
autoimmune illnesses; diabetes, arthritis, etc.
illnesses of the blood; cancer, blood clotting
***People who display symptoms of the virus are asked to stay home/seek medical attention.***
The Session will continue monitoring the situation regularly, performing next level assessments and prayerfully discern future directives. Please continue to keep all in your prayers.
Technology permitting, the worship services will continue to be sent via an email link on Sunday mornings for those who continue to want to worship together online. It is also available on our website here.
We have begun in person worship on Sundays at 10:00am for one service in the Fellowship Hall with a max of 85 people. Sign up for worship is required and the link will be sent via email for those that would like to attend. Face masks are required as well as six foot distancing. If you are not on the email listing and would like to be, call the church office at 910-295-6848.
Our main source of communication is by email. If you know of a church member that has email services but is not receiving our church email communications, please get their current email address and forward it to Rod Stone. Thank You.
