Week of 3/21 Announcements In-person Worship Protocols: Just a reminder that one of the best ways to show love for one another is to follow the 4W’s: 1. Wear Face Masks; 2. Wash hands; 3. Watch your 6 ft distancing; 4. Wait to visit til you are outside! The Ushers will guide you to the exit for your pew. At this time, we will continue to have song leaders and ask that you not sing during the hymns. As more of us get vaccinated this may be lifted as well.

March Mission Project - Our local mission this month is helping young families with diapers, wipes, burp cloths( if anyone wants to sew some), bottles, and other items that might be helpful. Dan Finland, a friend in Kathy Prater’s neighborhood, is a man with a heart for helping others. He stocks baby supplies in his home and when a family calls for help, he responds with what’s needed. So let’s help him share the love! Bring your baby supplies to church and we will deliver them to Mr. Dan! Blessings! April Food Ministry Needs: We will be giving a ham for each family on Saturday, April 3. We are planning on feeding about 45 families. Please donate a ham (Walmart and Aldi’s have good prices) by March 26 or donate by giving a check to the food ministry. You are a blessing to these 45 families.
