LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE
With our church temporarily suspending all worship and activities, we are sharing these Worship Moments with Pastor Debbie and Music Team Leader Steve each week until we can once again gather together. We hope this will provide you with comfort and a time for reflection. To see previous weeks' messages, go to our Facebook page or https://vimeo.com/user64003010.

Zoom is free to use with your computer, tablet or smartphone.
Wearing masks in public has been recommended by public health officials as we continue to fight against the COVID-19 virus. We have a member who is making face masks, and another who has N95 material and a pattern for those interested in sewing masks. If either of these interest you, please let us know, and we will make arrangements to get the masks or materials to you. Secretary Susan Kolarik is heading this up for us. Contact her here.
Congregation meeting delayed
The annual meeting will take place on a date to be determined soon. Agenda items include: presentations and votes on the 2020 budget and slate of candidates for our boards. Summary board reports will be presented, and a vote will be held for a minor correction in our Constitution (updating the new names for our UCC Association and Conference) as part of the agenda. The presence and participation of members is important so that we can obtain quorum and conduct business. For those unable to attend, absentee ballots are available by contacting the church office at 330.864.2179, extension 1, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
