What is Happening This Week 2/3-2/6/22

Happy Snow Day!  

Hope you are safe, warm and cozy somewhere on this cold snowy day. I have always loved snow days: no school, hot chocolate, no schedule, cozy blankets to cuddle in – and stuck in a house with people I love! A fun perfect day! Hope you are enjoying it too!  

Please join us on Sunday for a Holy Communion worship service. If you are feeling like it is too cold to join us in person at 8:30 or 10:30 in the sanctuary, please gather with us by live streaming. As you prepare, please plan on participating with communion. If you are with me, I have it covered. If you are at home, please gather bread or crackers and any juice or wine so you can bless these elements with us. This holy meal is a way of gathering as the Body of Christ and remembering our Lord. We are invited by name and missed when we are not in attendance. Hope you will join us in the most convenient way.  

I look forward to greeting you on Sunday! Stay safe and warm until then!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl
