|Sabbath School Resumes August 1! The Sabbath School Council met and decided to open up Sabbath School on August 1. Both the children’s divisions and the adult divisions will begin meeting in person on that date.
We have social distancing guidelines in place, and masks are required for everyone from the Primary Department on up. The Kindergarten and Cradle Roll children are not required to wear masks unless families want their child to wear them.
We will have sanitizers in each room. There are some limitations on bathroom use that will be posted on the doors, and no water fountain use—we will have bottles of water available to those who need a drink.
We are asking for everyone to use the main upstairs doors so we can take temperatures on everyone when they come in. The downstairs doors will remain locked. We will have social distancing markers on the floor in the lower level and one direction walk flow at the lower level.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone back at Sabbath School and studying the Word of God together again! We all must be diligent in these times. Please be praying for our teachers and leaders as they make the changes necessary for safely opening our Sabbath School.
—Bonnie Oatman, Sabbath School Superintendent
|The following individuals have been selected to serve on the nominating committee. We will vote on this list during the worship service on Aug. 1. Please keep the committee in prayer as they do the important work of choosing those who will serve in church leadership roles for the next year.
Amazing Gift and Church Business Meeting
|An Amazing Gift and a Platform ProposalGod has poured out a remarkable blessing upon our church. He moved upon Reeder Pianos to donate a beautiful concert grand piano for our sanctuary. God is GOOD, all the time! In the midst of a pandemic, He is reminding us that He still holds this church in His hands!In order for this piano to perform optimally, Reeder Pianos recommended that we should have a wood surface on the platform rather than carpet. We will meet as a church in business session to discuss and vote on the changes that the church board recommends making to our platform area before we accept this gift. The cost will be approximately $4,000, which is far less than the value of the new piano!
Church Business Meeting
Sunday, Aug. 2, 6:00 p.m.
You may attend the meeting in person or via Zoom (online or by phone).
Next week in the newsletter we will share more details about the plan and why the gift of this piano is such an amazing answer to prayer for our church’s musicians!
