Since we cannot be in church together, we thought one way to still maintain our tradition is if you would email a picture with you and your family holding a lit candle. We can then include them in the worship service.

UMW News

The next meeting of the UMW will be Tuesday, December 15 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. The theme of the meeting is “A New Perspective”. You are invited to think of a tradition or item that means ‘Christmas’ to you, and we will share these thoughts at the meeting. Also be thinking about a new way that you will be celebrating Christmas in this unusual year. Debbie Mecca will send out a Zoom link for the meeting. Hope to see you then!

Age appropriate materials for our weekly lessons in October have been sent to each family. These materials include worksheets, coloring pages, pieces for art projects and more. The Zoom calls will be held on Sunday mornings and last 20-30 minutes each. There will be two separate Zoom calls—one for students in grade 6 and younger beginning at 9:00 AM and one for those in grades 7-12 beginning at 9:30AM.
If you have not received the packet of materials for your children, or you know of a family member, friend or neighbor who would like to have their children or youth participate in our Zoom Sunday School, please contact Debbie Mecca

Debbie Mecca is leading a Zoom Bible Study for Women on Thursday evenings at 7:00PM. The group has read through several books of the Bible and will be starting the book of Galatians on October 8. There has been much lively and insightful discussion and sharing and has turned out to be quite a bonding experience for those involved. If you would be interested in joining this study please contact Debbie and she will gladly include you.

BFF Kids
Our youth group for kids in grades 4-6, as of now, does not have permission to meet. We are hoping to hold a modified version once we are given the go ahead. Notice will be sent out when and if we are allowed to meet.
