Update on wearing masks at service:

For the foreseeable future the leadership team has decided it is now optional to wear a mask during services.  In conjunction with this option, we are sectioning off seating for those who choose to wear a mask and for those who choose not to wear one.  The sections are as follows:

WEARING A MASK.  All the seats in the section to the left of the middle aisle will be designated for those WEARING a mask.

NOT WEARING A MASK.  All the seats in the section to the right of the middle aisle will be designated for those NOT WEARING a mask.

Please arrange yourself appropriately and monitor your fellowship so we can continue to offer a safe environment for each other.

Request from Mollie Mostert for Disciples in Pakistan

The disciples in Pakistan are extremely poor- much more than I know how to describe. They are unable to buy Christmas gifts for their children. The only way they get any Christmas gifts is from the donations I send. There are 150 children in the four churches there. My goal is for each child to have a $10 gift. That is nothing to us, but HUGE for them. Any amount you can give will be deeply appreciated. Checks can be made out to South Asia Mission Society and are tax deductible.
Many thanks,

Mollie will have Christmas wreaths for sale tomorrow at church. All proceeds will go towards Christmas gifts for Pakistani Christmas gifts.


We are missing 2 chrome books that the children’s ministry purchased a couple of years ago to use in the classrooms. If you borrowed them, please return them to Tim or Lacy Armstrong. Thank you.
