Sunday Morning Cyber Coffee Hour at 11 am
Please join others who will gather following morning worship for a “virtual” coffee hour via Zoom! Join by computer here, Meeting ID: 924 416 446, Password: 899935; One tap mobile +16465588656,924416446#; by phone +1 646 558 8656.
Sunday School will happen entirely online starting at 10 am on Sundays. You can access our lessons through Zoom. Contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom information.
In an attempt to foster an adaptive sense of community, we will have similar “check-in” lessons throughout the week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 am. We’ve added a third check in time on Wednesdays at 6 pm for our families that cannot make morning meetings. You can use the same link to join these meetings, where students can listen to stories, play games, and talk together as a community, all lead by Ms. Lauren.

For let us not forget the promises of our faith, from Romans 8, which says:
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Gov Lamont has recommended the use of this website, https://get.howwefeel.org/share, to report how we are feeling (it can also be downloaded as an app to your phone). Although Covid testing is essential and currently far below where it should be had the federal response been adequate, symptom reporting may be helpful at the state level in identifying any new “hotspots” that pop up. The reporting is anonymous and easy (even for a retired orthopedic surgeon . . . not known for following directions well). Please consider using it daily.
Be safe & healthy, Court Lewis
