Acts 1:8 Project is based on Jesus’ command to be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. The Acts 1:8 committee, consisting of Dennis Deck (member of the board), Michele Derheim (member of the missions committee), and Pastor Ron, has carefully and prayerfully selected mission projects to bless other ministries and advance God’s kingdom. Pastor Ron explained these to the church today, and on Sunday, May 16th, the congregation will be asked fro approve investing $30,000 towards these projects.

Safety protocols adopted from our Covid-19 advisory committee. These protocols were reviewed at the end of April, and due to the recent surge in Covid cases, they will remain in place. They will be reviewed by the committee again in June:
- Masks will be required upon entry to the building and are to be worn continuously. (We have lots of extra masks available in the church entryway.)
- Hand sanitizer stations are available in the church entryway and encouraged to be used.
- Please remember to social distance. We will continue to rope off every other pew in the church sanctuary.
- Please stay at home if you have a fever or any other symptoms.
- We will be taking a ‘sanctuary picture’ for contact tracing purposes.
- We will pause our fellowship time and Sunday School until further notice.
- We will limit our number of songs/hymns each Sunday.
- Out of an abundance of caution, we will postpone our Candlelight Christmas Eve service til next year.
- Face shields are available for pianists and keyboard players and are on those instruments.
